The New School is an experiential, project-based high school opening in

Physics, AP English, and Precalculus, and will apply that learning by

aren't the same old school projects you might be thinking of. For
example, next year's 9th grade class will be conducting a year-long
study of how the different forms of transportation technology have
transformed Atlanta's cultural, political, economic, and racial
topography. To do this, students will be using the city as the
classroom, as they do original research and collaborate with
professionals in the business and governmental communities that The New
School is partnering with. Over the course of the year, they will build
an interactive website to showcase their work, create 3-D maps that
chart the changes in Atlanta over time, and pitch their transportation
solutions to public officials and community leaders.
There is a
lot that is different about The New School. So check us out at
tnsatlanta.org, and come to one of our remaining Parent Information
Sessions this semester. Our next session is in just a couple of weeks,
on November 13, and we'll also be meeting on December 5. Both begin at
at 6:30 PM, at The New School, which will be located in Inman Park at
1015 Edgewood Ave (next to the Inman Park MARTA station; in the Inman
Park UMC building that recently housed the Atlanta School). You can RSVP
