Nueva is where both children and adults are continuously learning.

ProsProfessional development is a focus and it is almost always meaningful. Teachers are really given a voice and agency in how their classrooms are run, what the school focuses on in terms of professional development, norms set for the school, etc. Teachers are given a lot of trust and are not expected to be perfect, although they are expected to work hard and keep the children's best interests at the forefront.

ConsMany times, the school feels disorganized. If you need everything in a row, you will most likely be uncomfortable here. If you want room to experiment and create, though, it's great. Furthermore, the culture of wealth at the school (primarily among the students) can be a little overwhelming at times. That said, most of the children are very well-adjusted and the school focuses on fostering autonomy, so they're not dependent on daddy's trust fund.

    I worked at The Nueva School full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros: Great staff, the turmoils of the school meant that most staff come together and work well. Some know which side their bread is buttered on… Cons: Chaos at administration level. Decisions over turned, teachers were hamstrung, left ineffective. No transparency or fairness across how people were treated. Worst this all rubbed… Advice to Senior Management: Look after your staff. Be a school, first and foremost not a business.
