Families: An Important Part of The New School Experience

Family participation in a student's educational process is essential. The New School believes that an inclusive, collaborative environment encompassing parents, staff, and students in the school community yields many benefits for those involved. In addition to focusing on clear communications between parents, teachers, and students and encouraging parent participation, The New School community sponsors a variety of programs to support and assist parents in their efforts to provide an extraordinary educational experience for their child.
We hope that you will take an active role in your child’s education – by being involved in the classroom when needed, volunteering for a variety of events on campus, participating with the Parents Association and joining service organizations which support our school.

Like most independent schools, The New School’s continued excellence relies on gifts of time, talent and financial resources from the entire school community. All areas of school life depend on the generosity of our supporters, including academics, athletics, the arts, technology, facilities and grounds, field trips, after-school clubs and financial aid. Such support comes in many forms: financial donations to the Annual Fund, Planned Giving, participation in Parents Association, support of school fundraisers and volunteering in the school community.
