Why Support The New School?
Our students develop into learners who are curious, passionate, self-directed, who engage in conceptual thinking, and who are motivated to continue learning throughout life. The family environment of the classroom and of the school as a whole fosters the development of individuals who are committed to peace, social justice, social harmony, service to others, sustainability, and who appreciate diversity and respect individual differences. We would argue, and we think you would agree, that fostering these qualities in the future stewards of our world is the greatest investment we can make not just for our individual children, but for mankind. Maria Montessori said: “Education today, in this particular social period, is assuming truly unlimited importance. And the increased emphasis on its practical value can be summed up in one sentence: education is the best weapon for peace.” When you give to The New School, you are giving not only to your own children, but to the community and the world as well.
