Hello to The New School Community!

Welcome or welcome back to The New School. I am honored to be joining this wonderful community as your new Head of School and am looking forward to this 49th year of The New School (TNS) with great excitement and anticipation. It has been a joy to spend these summer weeks beginning to get to know the school and Northwest Arkansas. I’ve been working closely with the Administrative team, planning and preparing for the 2019 - 2020 school year, and teachers will return on August 5th for collaborative planning and final preparations. While this planning time is important, we are all excited to feel the energy that can only exist in a school full of students! We are all eagerly awaiting August 12th.

I look forward to meeting all of you in the coming weeks and months. Over the next six months, I will engage in a listening tour, with both formal and informal opportunities for me to hear from all constituents about what you value about TNS. Please watch for more details in August. Strong family engagement leads to greater academic and social success for students, so please mark your calendars to join us for the following opening-of-school events:

Reception for New Parents to TNS, Thursday, August 8th, 6:30 pm

All School Open House, Friday, August 9th, 1:30-3:30 pm

Back to School Bash, Friday, August 16th, 5:00-7:30 pm

Thank you for choosing The New School for your family. We are committed to partnering with your family, nurturing an inclusive community, and providing the best educational opportunities for our students. I look forward to meeting you soon.

Warm Regards,



Nancy Lang 

Head of School
