Lower School

This is where the liberation of young minds starts. When children enter the big embrace at New Roads, which includes access to the resources of our K-12 specialty spaces, faculty, and student mentors, they encounter an authentically diverse peer group and faculty, who invite them to wonder, inquire, assess, create, and think for themselves.
In our intentionally close-knit lower school community, teachers and leaders customize learning experiences that honor the appropriate level of challenge and pique the curiosity of a range of students. The Lower School encourages the wonder of learning, where young individuals develop a taste for the thrill and satisfaction that comes from seeking novel solutions to complex problems and to uncover fascinating new questions. It’s also where a lasting love of the arts, humanities, social sciences, and sciences takes root, as emerging intellectuals, inventors, techies, musicians, painters, scientists, mathematicians, activists, and dancers discover that liminal space between intellect and designed play.

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.
