- We believe students are intrinsically motivated to learn, achieve, and create.
- A special dimension of equality exists in the teacher-student relationship. We celebrate this dimension because it allows students to see themselves as successful and creative learners and individuals.
- Our teachers help students develop the essential skills and habits of mind they need to use their minds well. We use tools of authentic assessment (portfolios, exhibitions, performances, projects, presentations, essays, and more) to evaluate the academic growth and achievement of each student.
- Our students, teachers, and parents relate to one another with mutual respect and trust.
- We believe in our skilled faculty: collegial friends of the highest order and talented student mentors.
- Stop by any Thursday from 9:15-10:15 to learn about our one-of-a-kind school.

My son has attended this school for just over a year and we couldn't be happier! The classes are small and engaging, and the teachers take the time to make sure he's interested in and understanding the content. We are so excited that we found The New School. If you're looking for small classes and a friendly community please consider The New School.
