Do Work That Matters
New School students do work that matters. Original work. This isn’t high school as you’ve imagined it. Yes, TNS students master an exacting college prep curriculum. But they’re also out in the world, learning alongside entrepreneurs, artists, politicians, biochemists, and dozens of other passionate professionals doing important work–because the city is the most exciting classroom. The New School – get ready to launch.Request More Info
Learning By Doing
Students learn best when they’re deeply engaged in their work and know that something other than a grade is at stake. Conducting Biology experiments with scientists at Zoo Atlanta and the Georgia Aquarium. Performing Shakespeare for passersby on the BeltLine. Pitching diabetes interventions to a team from Emory’s School of Public Health. At TNS, students use the whole city as their classroom.
For today’s students to solve tomorrow’s problems, they need creative problem solving skills, the courage to prototype, test, and reflect, and grit to push past the finish line. We call this the Entrepreneurial Mindset.

“The New School allows my daughter to be comfortable with herself, amongst her peers and teachers. With that comfort, she has the opportunity to seek out and pursue her passions within the context of a rigorous academic environment. The growth of self-confidence in the past two years is a direct result of the healthy environment fostered at TNS.” – TNS 11th Grade Parent
