Nueva School

6565 Skyline Blvd, Hillsborough, CA 94010

Typically enrolling pupils from more than 20 area communities, this progressive elementary school emphasizes integrated studies, the creative arts, and social and emotional learning in a small-class setting. The program's structure—which allows students to work at their own pace, either at or above grade level—is particularly suitable for gifted and talented children. Spanish classes are optional in grades 1-8, while compulsory Japanese language study begins in grade 6 and culminates with a three-week trip to Japan in grade 8. Pupils may take individual music lessons during the school day, and integrated visual arts projects often incorporate humanities, math, science and music through team teaching and project-based learning. Field trips to area museums and exhibits, which expose students to various art forms, supplement class work. Family involvement is an important component of school life.
