Get to know New City School at our Winter Open House! Due to safety protocols, space is limited, so RSVP today! 

  • Connect with our Head of School, administrators, and teachers, and hear from students and families about their experiences at New City School.
  • Hear about New City’s approach to teaching and learning through a curriculum focused on inquiry-based learning, exploration, and social-emotional development.
  • Discover The Tom Hoerr Innovation Lab & Kitchen, our new all-ages classroom space.
  • Learn about New City School’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion—both in the classroom and the greater community.

This event is just for the grown-ups. All visitors will need to wear face coverings and be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. 100% of faculty at New City School are vaccinated. You will receive instructions about how to send in documentation of vaccination prior to Open House. Thank you for helping us keep our community safe and healthy!

Frequently Asked Questions: Open House at New City School

Will I see the entire campus? 
Almost all of our historic 1901 school building will be part of your time at Open House. You’ll start your visit with a warm (yet socially-distanced) welcome in Founder’s Hall Theater, followed by small group tours led by our school administration that will allow you to experience many of our favorite places: the library, classrooms for a variety of ages, and our new Tom Hoerr Innovation Lab and Kitchen

Will I have the opportunity to meet teachers and see the classroom spaces? 
Absolutely! While the tour will give you a feel for all of New City School’s engaging and unique learning spaces, you will visit the specific classroom(s) for the grade to which your child(ren) would be applying, learn more about the programming at that grade level, and have time to chat with teachers.

Will there be other parents there to discuss their experience at New City School? 
Yes, New City families will be volunteering at the event, and one of the tour stops will be staffed by current parents and caregivers who will share their perspectives and answer any questions you may have.  

What COVID-19 safety measures will be in place for the event?
We have limited the size of this event, and all attendees will need to wear face coverings at all times while on school grounds. We are also asking that all attendees be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (instructions for how to confirm your vaccination status will be sent with your RSVP confirmation).

Can my child/children attend Open House?
While our Open House is just for the grown-ups, there will be other opportunities for children to visit New City School, either for a Saturday “Sneak Peak” class or for applicant screening visits this winter.
