New City students excel both individually and in teams as leaders and colleagues. They learn to become responsible for their own learning and to advocate for their ideas and objectives.
At New City, our students cultivate a sense of self and their place in the world which gives them the confidence to resist the temptation to define themselves through others. This sophisticated understanding of themselves, the world and their role in it gives New City graduates remarkable interpersonal skills.
The promise New City makes to students and their parents is to provide an unparalleled elementary academic education that is the foundation for success in secondary school and beyond. New City students learn fundamental tools and skills through a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum taught by dedicated and experienced teachers.
Multiple Intelligence theory is the tool through which students learn and engage with the curriculum and by which the material comes alive for each student.
