Head of School Welcome

Welcome! I invite you to get acquainted with TNCS through these pages. As you will see, our strong community is built on academic rigor, constructive energy, and mutual respect. We are a diverse school with an international population of students and staff. Above all, we are committed to providing each child the opportunity to become an independent, secure, and balanced human being. This emerges through our four pillars of the developing learner: Compassion, Courage, Respect, and Service, also known as our Core Values.

The New Century School was founded by forward-thinking, conscientious parents who recognize that providing the best possible education for their children should include key aspects commonly missing from school curricula:

  • Modern world language learning
  • Progressiveness and innovation
  • Personalization
  • Focus on the Arts
  • Global citizenship focusing on our core values of compassion, courage, respect, and service

We offer a multilingual, individualized education in a nurturing environment. Schoolwide, education is inquiry based. Our preschool program follows a Montessori curriculum, stressing choice, learning from peers, and the cultivation of concentration. Our elementary program features small, mixed-age classes, technology, arts, and hands-on science. Our middle school continues to challenge students in these critical disciplines while providing them a secure environment in which to safely mature.

Our caring, multitalented staff is integral to our success. Each educator and administrator makes a special contribution to this thriving scholastic community. Appropriately, they have the freedom to use their particular skills to keep TNCS students happy, healthy, and engaged in learning.

We believe that education continues throughout life. While here, children cultivate the natural intellectual curiosity and ability to think critically that will ensure they are lifelong learners. Our multicultural and multilingual approach additionally helps them become world-aware, compassionate global citizens.

I sincerely invite you to come and see for yourself how our innovative school can awaken the love of learning in your child and help your child become his or her best self.
