Mission Statement

The New School for Community Service is based on the premise that young people can and will become educated, active members of their community by integrating their high school learning experiences with meaningful participation in the social and economic activities which benefit the community.

The New School for Community Service will empower students, families, and teachers to work together to create a new model of community education in which young people contribute in a meaningful way to the betterment of their community while receiving a quality education.

The New School for Community Service will provide a non-traditional, but proven program leading to a public high school diploma and higher education or training for its participants.


The New School for Community Service is an innovative, city-wide high school serving 135 11th and 12th grade students. The school is entering its 12th year and is committed to providing a quality high school education in a small school atmosphere. It is the only high school in the district offering community-based learning internships as the core of the program. Over the last 11 years, it has built a powerful network of private businesses, community-based organizations, governmental units, and schools that serve as learning resource sites for our students. Internships offer credit-earning opportunities in art, business, computer education, language arts, science, social studies, and technical education. In addition to the internship program, the New School offers a menu of in-house classes taught by our staff of eight teachers, a variety of computer-based course offering including PLATO, APEX (Advanced Placement on-line), and Virtual High School. New School is a fully inclusive school for students with special needs.
