Nantucket New School
Nantucket New School is a family-centered school community. Our program encourages academic excellence, respects the pace of childhood, and seeks to instill in our students curiosity, creativity, kindness and a lifelong love of learning. We believe that a small school is uniquely equipped to meet the individual needs of students and their families. A low student/teacher ratio provides opportunities for us consistently to recognize each student as a person and as a learner. Essential to our success are strong student/teacher relationships, as well as partnerships between teachers and parents, creating a family atmosphere where students of different ages are able to interact cooperatively on a regular basis. We believe in and are committed to purposeful involvement in the unique community that is Nantucket and seek to build a student body that reflects the changing diversity of the island.
