I am thrilled to be the 5th Head of School in New City’s history! For 50 years, New City has helped children discover a love of learning, leading to success not only in school, but success in life as well. Academic development is of paramount importance at New City – our curriculum is challenging and our secondary school placement is strong. Equally important to us is the social and emotional development of children, and we work very hard to ensure that students understand themselves as learners and individuals. Our students understand how to approach and solve problems, how to work with others, and they grow up with a strong sense of the world around them.
Community is another hallmark of the New City experience. We have intentionally created a community that is exceptionally diverse, and we embrace the joys and challenges that come with living and learning in a diverse environment. We define diversity very broadly and view children’s understanding of identity, diversity, and issues of social justice as key to achievement in school and beyond.
With an accomplished and skilled faculty, we have built and continue to sustain a school with a local and international reputation for excellence in education. New City is an amazing school; I invite you to discover that for yourself. I look forward to your visit and to welcoming you as your family explores our community.
