Since 1969, New City School has inspired children age 3 through 6th Grade to engage joyfully in learning and achieve academic excellence while cultivating their personal strengths and passions. Students are empowered to build community and advocate for a more just and equitable world through a hands-on, experiential curriculum guided by the theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI). By connecting the concept of MI to knowledge of brain development, teachers at New City provide students with challenging curricular opportunities that encourage learning and growth, allowing students to develop their individual strengths and grow into confident, joyful learners who are successful academically, are knowledgeable about themselves and others, value and appreciate diversity, and are prepared to lead in the classroom and beyond.
New City School is committed to strengthening and sustaining the socioeconomic diversity of the school community and offers a Variable Tuition program to support families at different income levels. The school embraces the joys and challenges that come with living and learning in a broadly diverse environment, and views childrens’ understanding of identity, diversity, and issues of social justice as a key to achievement in school and beyond. Additionally, the school does not avoid difficult conversations that may arise as a result of questions about larger issues of social justice; rather, these are faced head on, in an age-appropriate manner.
