Welcome to the Nantucket New School. I hope the experience you have with our website today will guide you toward a campus visit, and I am certain that when you walk our grounds and academic spaces, you will find the type of warm, balanced, and vigorous environment that we all want for our children’s education. During this time of rapid societal, technological, and academic change, the mission of our school to instill curiosity, creativity, and kindness into the community has never been more important.
Nantucket New School is carefully positioned and partnered to provide the appropriate blend of experiential learning, student centered classes, and skills development that make our students successful at the secondary level and beyond. In this family-centered environment rich with motivated and connected students, teachers, and parents, we are able to create a culture and pedagogy that will advance your child’s individual experience to the forefront. Please feel free to call me directly to schedule a tour of our campus on Nobadeer Farm Rd. or just stop by to talk about the value of an independent school experience.
It is my strongest belief that schools are about people and opportunity. All constituencies at Nantucket New School are given the opportunity to connect, collaborate and challenge. Faculty members are charged with the opportunity to support, nurture, and guide. Students are gifted the opportunity to pursue a new passion, discover a new friend, and develop under a mentor. But most importantly, our graduates regularly find the opportunity to be well-prepared for the next step in their social, emotional, and academic development.
People will always be at the center of the Nantucket New School community. From our youngest PK student to the our most senior visitor on Grandparent’s Day, from our youngest assistant teacher in the Early Division to our most experienced administrator, the constituencies of the Nantucket New School will be at the center of every interaction, decision, and initiative. Foremost in our efforts to develop our people will be the absolute focus on the needs of the individual child.
If you are an alum or past community member visiting our website, welcome back. I invite you to reconnect with your old friends at Nantucket New School, and please feel free to reach out to me for an introduction.
Thank you for visiting the Nantucket New School website, and I hope you take the time to learn more about our partnerships throughout the community and the experiential education that is at the core of our program. Most importantly, I look forward to connecting on campus.
Interim Head of School
