The Nueva School seeks motivated and passionate learners who will thrive in and contribute to our program. When considering students for our school, we look for evidence of intellectual curiosity, independent thought and depth of ideas, creativity in approach to problem solving, and divergent thinking. Our students bring a great deal of knowledge to the classroom and actively participate in the learning process. Our students are self-empowered to be teachers as well as learners.
Part of Nueva's mission is to reach out locally, nationally, and internationally to the broader community of gifted students, teachers, homeschoolers, administrators, and clinicians. Through publications, presentations at conferences, partnerships with institutions such as the Stanford d.school, and institutes on campus, Nueva is a leader in the world of gifted education. Nueva, as an institution and through its teachers, offers many opportunities for teachers, administrators, and parents to learn more about gifted education in classes, workshops, conferences, institutes, and publications, both print and online.
Nueva has remained true to its mission to cultivate and serve intellectually and creatively gifted children since 1967.
