Creating Community
New Roads School is a diverse and cohesive educational community, reflective of the kaleidoscope of cultures, ethnicities, beliefs, and orientations that make our larger Los Angeles community so vibrant.  We believe that a meaningful 21st century education must include integration with the larger community to prepare students to lead active, participatory lives.
The Capshaw-Spielberg Center for Arts and Educational Justice provides us, and you, with a unique opportunity to join together, to create community, and to contribute to genuine, original, evolving education.  We invite you to explore and to utilize our Ann and Jerry Moss Theater and Leadership Center, and to work with us to develop programming whose impact will last beyond any particular presentation or performance.

The New Roads Advantage

In a school that mirrors the socio-economic, cultural, and racial diversity of Los Angeles, New Roads students are challenged daily to question their own worldview, assumptions, perspectives, and righteousness. We are inspired by the promise that our students represent for the future of democracy.
