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.

“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

Project Updates - Civil Rights Storytelling
In their 9th and 10th grades, TNS students take on major research, design thinking and (multimedia) storytelling projects. Our latest storytelling project has taken students to Arbor Terrace at Cascade, and presented a chance to tell unheard stories from some very special senior residents. What better way to learn Civil Rights History than straight from the minds of elders who lived through it and were leaders in the fight for civil rights.
TNS Wins Spirit of the Game Award
Congratulations to the TNS Ultimate team on winning the "Spirit Award" for the state JV Boys Division. A great honor in our first ever season as a team, and testimony to the good sportsmanship and character of our players and the leadership of our fantastic coach, Kat Smith!
“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
