Our COVID-19 Response

Dear Friends,

 

While our classroom buildings are closed as a precaution against the spread of the coronavirus, our Admissions Office is open and I am available daily for virtual meetings and interviews. We are also inviting prospective students to visit classes online this spring. Simply click the “Schedule A Meeting” button below to request a meeting.

 

We fully expect to return to our campus for the 2020-2021 academic year, and we are still accepting applications for fall enrollment. 

 

I’m excited to introduce you to our one-of-a-kind program. 

 

All the best, stay well,

 

Steve Roushakes

Head of School

 

Our response to COVID-19

Currently all classes are being held via video conferencing. Because of early and thoughtful planning, our transition to online learning has been a great success. Our online classes mirror our regular school day, and we are inviting prospective students to visit classes online this spring. We are always student-focused, and our goal has been to maintain the structure and high quality of our regular program.

Our parents say…

“I wanted to reach out and compliment you and the other teachers for organizing so quickly and professionally. I’m sure this was no small endeavor! I’ve spoken to many parents and most of them have shared that their school’s version of online school is really email and assignments with little interaction. It was fun to watch our child engage today. We are thrilled that you all have gone the extra step. Your actions have demonstrated the very essence of what The New School lives and breathes — accountability, consistency and resiliency. Great life skills for our kids!”  

 

“I just want to send a heartfelt thank you for your response to this situation. Our student is fully engaged in her classes and it is wonderful to have her connected with teachers and classmates in an ongoing and meaningful way. I am so grateful to you and your teachers for your quick, well-organized, and thoughtful response. I keep singing your praises to others and wanted to share my gratitude with you directly. THANK YOU!” 

 

“Can I just say that The New School is AWESOME?! We are incredibly lucky to be a part of this community. Thank you so much for all the support you provide our son (and all the students). It’s apparent how the teachers care and how much they give of their time to support each student. It’s actually kind of cool to have more insight into just how awesome everyone is since school is being done at home. Thank you for making all of this possible even during these unprecedented times.”

 

“We just want to thank you for providing not only educational enrichment during this challenging time but reassurance, warmth, routine and flexibility. You stood out in your planning, facilitating, administration, commitment and love of learning and teaching even before all of this; however, in the face of it, we appreciate you tenfold.”
