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.
A Day in the Life
“It’s amazing. I get excited about coming to school every day. The New School is accepting and fun. I'm getting so much out of high school, academically, fundamentally, and socially.” - TNS 9th Grade Student
