The Nueva School
Hillsborough, CA, 2007
Architect: Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects
The Nueva School is a Pre-K to eighth grade experimental school that emphasizes social-emotional learning, creative arts and integrated studies. It aims to inspire passion for lifelong learning, foster social and emotional acuity, and develop children’s imaginations. The Nueva School’s campus expansion design builds on these principles while demonstrating leadership in environmental stewardship. Design elements dovetail with the school’s curriculum by creating outdoor spaces for children to engage with processes of the local ecosystem.
