New Gate is an international, coeducational, non-sectarian, college preparatory Montessori school.
For us, the parents, faculty, staff, and board of the New Gate School, this means that our ongoing task is to create, enhance, and maintain the environment and conditions that will, in a developmentally appropriate way, most effectively and positively lead the children to love themselves, to love others and to love the great wonders of the vast world around us.
Our goals for students are for them to be open minded and compassionate, to gain a sense of themselves and others, and to understand and appreciate the diversity of the human condition.
The New Gate School wants students to be well trained in the basic academic disciplines, to fulfill their creative potential, and to gain satisfaction in their physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development.
We want students to love learning and to value knowledge, creativity, and humor.
It is our hope that students will be responsible citizens, critical thinkers, caring members of a pluralistic society, and will recognize that they have the power and resources to effect change.
Finally, it is our hope that the students at New Gate School will aspire to pursue and achieve their goals.
