OUR MISSION We educate students in a college- preparatory program to be literate, critical thinkers, and independent problem solvers who are agents of social justice with sensitivity toward the world around them.
SUCCESS STARTS WITH US
We believe that educating children is everyone’s job. Across our schools, nearly 500 staff members, from custodians to teachers, work hard to create safe and welcoming spaces for our students to learn. Our team is motivated by five core values or anchors: excellence, equity, community, innovation, and joy.
A TRAUMA-INFORMED APPROACH TO TEACHING
Our teachers are trained to track not just academic progress but also overall well-being. When emotional or behavior issues come up, a student is referred to a counselor for support. The Jeri Weiss Mental Health Program at Camino Nuevo gives students and families access to a variety of supportive services like individual therapy and peer support groups, so they can regain their well-being and focus on learning.
ENRICHING STUDENTS’ LIVES
We are committed to exposing students to meaningful learning experiences outside the classroom. These experiences build their confidence and resilience, and help them discover what is possible and open to them beyond their neighborhoods.
