New School for Arts and Sciences, a member of the Center for Collaborative Education, was founded to introduce alternative-assessment, and rigorous education to all students. We believe that all students can learn to the best of their ability in an academically challenging environment that is also caring. Our students are prepared for college and to speak in public. They are expected to complete portfolios in mathematics, science, humanities, community service, Spanish, and the Arts. Students learn good habits of mind and work diligently during school hours as well as after 3:00pm.  Program Eligibility: Open to residents within former James Monroe zone.
