The New School Junior High and High School spans 7th - 12th grade, with the first graduating class in 2020. Small, seminar-style classes take place in modular classrooms, where the curriculum is college-preparatory, but also life-preparatory. Students attend a minimum 5 course academic load, with stimulating courses taught by discipline specific teachers with co-curricular opportunities.
The academic program is hands-on and experiential, exemplified by our field experiences around the country and our STEAM-focused Innovation Center, which houses 3-D printers, a laser cutter, a vinyl cutter, and a full woodworking/metal-working lab. Our innovative Flex periods are designed to allow students to pursue their passions, from the science behind making tea, to the process required to design a board game, to data analysis utilizing neural networks. Students work from laptops, occasionally shifting to iPads, and with a fully wireless campus, our classes can go wherever the learning takes them.
