Schools have tempos and rhythms. Some will have you tapping your feet; others
will have you looking for the door. New Roads is not for everyone. Our
community is culturally and economically diverse, our teachers enthusiastic,
demanding and passionate, and our program challenging, intriguing and fun.
Our standards are high, our demands rigorous, but not always "bookish" or
textbook-driven. We believe young people learn far more effectively when
asked to solve complex puzzles and reflect thoughtfully on their work than
when asked simply to recall.
Admission to New Roads School is based upon our assessment of a young
person’s ability to flourish in our educational program and an indication that
both student and school community would benefit from his or her enrollment.
As such, entry to New Roads is not simply a game of numbers. We welcome
students from diverse backgrounds – students with a range and depth of
interests, talents, curiosities and enthusiasms.
