Program Overview

TNCS’s Middle School program cultivates critical thinking, preparing students to enter competitive high-school environments. The curriculum focuses on mastery of core academics, STEM, and modern world languages.

Class sizes are small, allowing teachers to differentiate instruction and offer individualized support. Rigor is infused through the program, with students taking on increasingly complex tasks through the Middle School grades.

The hallmark of The New Century School is teaching 21st-century skills. In our current world, knowing information is less useful than being able to use that information effectively.

At TNCS, we guide our students to learn how to obtain information, make sense of it, and apply it in other contexts. Through the use of inquiry, students receive a thorough grounding in STEM subjects (science, engineering, technology, and mathematics). Music and the visual arts are also part of the daily curriculum, promoting creativity and mindfulness.
