The New American School

A network of high performing schools that build strong academic foundations, STEM skills, and American values. 🇺🇸

Our Approach

What guides our schools.

Education is a science-based field.

Our schools are powered by a science-based approach to education that uses evidence-based best practices like Direct Instruction, Core Knowledge, RTI, and Collective Teacher Efficacy.

Focus on core knowledge.

You can't think critically unless you have something to think critically about. Our primary responsibility is to make sure every child has strong academic foundations.

Bored kids don't learn.

Boredom has a significant negative effect size on learning. We seek to fill learning with meaningful experiences and activities that transform inert ideas into empowering mental frameworks.

Discipline equals freedom.

Students are encouraged to cultivate self-discipline, hard work, and positive self-efficacy. We consider striving for success, connectedness with others, and contributions to society as hallmarks of mental health.

Teaching is a team sport.

Our teachers aren't isolated cogs in a machine. They're integrated professionals on a team that uses best practices, aligned curriculum, and consistent process.

Respect parents.

They're not our kids - they're yours. We are deputized by parents to teach core academics and cultivate healthy individuals. Parents know what is best for their child.

Celebrate America.

We adhere to the principle of American Exceptionalism and celebrate personal responsibility, free market economics, pluralism, patriotism, and family.

STEM fluency is for everyone.

Literacy in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is foundational for a student to become a leading citizen. Every student is given opportunities to develop their STEM literacy across all subjects.

360° learning.

Learning takes place both inside and outside of the classroom. Students need regular activities, events, and field trips that cultivate learning outside of the four walls of a classroom.
