New City School was founded in 1969 to help stabilize the then-struggling neighborhoods of the city’s Central West End. A group of neighbors, many of whom had small children, began meeting to discuss the possibility of opening a school — but not just any school. They dreamed of a unique school that would provide opportunities for a diverse group of children (and adults!) to learn together, to be creative, and to develop a sense of independence and confidence.In the many years since its founding, New City School has remained true to the vision of its founders. The school continues to be a place of bold vision and unlimited possibilities. It is a place that considers the needs of children first, a place that is built on a commitment to diversity, and a place that brings children, parents and teachers together in a community of joyful learning.
