    "As a student since eighth grade, Nueva changed my life. The teachers inspired me to follow my passions and the community supports learning it's cool to be smart here. The high school and middle school are definitely different in terms of their culture; the high school tends to be more STEM-focused."

    "Been there since 2002. Older child went elsewhere for high school, since Nueva was pre-K-8. When I heard a high school,was being considered, Inthought it was too risky for my younger one. After visiting all the alternatives, I felt it would be too risky to go elsewhere. The inaugural class is applyinng to college, and I cannot imagine better preparation--for school or for life."

    "Exceptional teachers. Many of the newly hired high school teachers previously taught at college level. All care. All know their stuff. On-boarding can be tough, as expectations are high for teachers, but lots of mentoring makes it successful and keeps the culture strong at this progressive school for gifted students."

    "These teachers know their stuff - they all have degrees in the area that they teach and because many of the kids are very gifted in particular areas, the teachers really know their stuff and can guide/mentor kids to learn more. THere is no need for a curriculum/text book at Nueva, because the teachers have readings and assignments that are far more creative and reflect the interests of his/her current class. The curriculum changes depending on the kids. It's wonderful. Only the best teachers can do that flawlessly."

    "Nueva is a wonderful school for students who are very self-motivated and curious and intellectually curious. It's a school where everyone is "weird" in their own way and the "weirdness" is really appreciated by the teachers and their peers. In the middle school, it is a bit disconcerting not to have a textbook or a set curriculum, but you soon find out that because the teachers are so excellent that a textbook would merely be dead weight. Instead the kids are learning things far beyond and far more in depth than any other place. In math, 6th graders ponder number theory, number bases, probability all within the context of creative problems - no rote math sheets or problem sets here. In humanities, kids are not asked to regurgitate history, but rather to argue and debate the various players and their positions (e.g., Was Jefferson a patriot or traitor? Debate federalists vs Jeffersonians? It goes on and on and on.. While it is a bit loosy-goosey, the teachers have very high expectations for achievement and learning here, and the kids really want to stretch their abilities. It's not for every body, but for my kid it's close to perfect."
