The Herb Alpert Educational Village
Inspired Education for an Evolving World

Student Life

To be prepared for success in our rapidly-evolving world, students need to be adaptable, open to new ideas and changing circumstances, and comfortable with an array of classmates and colleagues. Our students represent the full racial, cultural, and socio-economic diversity of Greater Los Angeles, and manifest the richness of their unique experiences through their collective activities on campus.

All School Meetings
Nowhere is the feeling of the New Roads experience better represented than during weekly All School Meetings. At these meetings, each campus gathers to discuss issues affecting the school, the students, and the larger community. Anyone who wishes to may speak; to advocate, cajole, honor, applaud, celebrate, vent, organize or inform.

Student Council
Student Council is the manifestation of our mission at work. The faculty-supervised Student Council is responsible for planning and implementing activities, representing the School at conferences and serving as liaison between the student body and the administration. Student Council aims its energy at strengthening the sense of community, both on and off campus, for everyone connected to the school.

At the Middle School, Student Council is comprised of students who participate in Leadership, a special program that allows students to design and lead school service projects and campus activities with teacher mentors. Our Upper School Student Council brings much meaningful activity to our campus. While the majority of the work centers on civic involvement, social justice and environmental action, Student Council also incorporates frivolous fun into life on campus. From organizing protests and charitable collection drives to plotting out the annual Pie Day Thanksgiving celebration, Student Council enriches day-to-day life at New Roads.

Student Clubs
New Roads’ Student Clubs give students opportunities to explore new interests, develop new passions and have fun. Our clubs are managed collaboratively by student leaders and faculty mentors. Clubs include:

Middle School
Movie Club, Nerd Club

Upper School
Spanish Club, Bracelet Making Club, Debate Club, Flash Mob Club, Digital Media Club, Doctor Who Club, Hip Hop Club, Spoken Word, Film Society, Stand Strong, Girl’s Learn International, Students for Diversity Awareness, Cooking Creations and more.
