The Nueva School Reviews

Transferring to the Nueva Upper School was the best decision of my life. I now get to take classes that satisfy my academic curiosity! I left my old school because I felt that it was lacking in STEM classes, and Nueva has fulfilled my desire to learn more about physics, computer science, and math, beyond the AP curriculum. Nueva's community is so incredible and I truly feel welcome at school. The Student Council always makes sure that all voices are heard, and no student is left without support. I find myself excited to go to school every day because each lesson is unique and inspiring. As Nueva continues to grow, I can't wait to see what the upper school will soon become. Go Mavericks!

Great school! Gifted and Talented Education. Has reputation for being a STEM school but non-STEM classes are abundant and excellent. No football team, but cross country and track are state ranked for school size. Basketball teams regularly make sectional playoffs, and boys basketball in 2019 made it to state quarterfinals!
I genuinely believe the Nueva School is the nation's best. Throughout my Nueva tenure, I've had the opportunity to collaborate with faculty on research projects, take highly specialized courses such as Drug Design, and socialize with individuals as motivated as they are intelligent. In terms of college preparation, Nueva has outstanding facilities and it reflects in its alumni. We sent 28 students to Stanford University over a three-year span – a positively astounding statistic regardless of how you frame it.

The teachers, though, are the unconditional feature of this school. I've formed and maintained out-of-classroom relationships with several instructors, ranging from casual conversations to research endeavors. Each of my instructors cares about me as a student. Through engaging (though challenging!) assessments, highly-tailored curriculum, and one-on-one interactions, I've found a way to thrive in every class.

I'm honored and humbled to have attended this school.
