Nueva High School

San Mateo, CA

Architect: Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects

A new independent high school campus for 600 students weaves together a collection of educational environments to form an “ecology of learning” for the 21st century student. Incorporating recent research into learner-centered pedagogy, the school is designed to adapt to changing educational needs while supporting creative inquiry and mind/body wellness.  

Program amenities include flexible learning spaces; innovative science laboratories and tech shops; a 425-seat theater; dining facilities; athletic center; student center; and a unique Writing & Research Center. Located in the San Francisco Bay Area within a transit-oriented development and adjoining a public park, outdoor spaces include contemplative study courts, sport courts, outdoor lab areas and organic gardens.  

Completion is scheduled for Fall 2014.
