Nueva School to partner with CSM
December 19, 2012, 05:00 AM Daily Journal staff report

Hillsborough’s Nueva School is accepting its first freshman class that will be hosted temporarily on the College of San Mateo campus while it prepares to build a new high school at Bay Meadows.

The school’s inaugural class will begin the fall of 2013. The school just received Planning Commission approval to build a new high school at the former site of the Bay Meadows race track in San Mateo Dec. 11.

The freshman class, however, will begin its studies at temporary facilities at CSM adjacent to the College Center and move to the new state-of-the-art facility at the Bay Meadows Phase II development in 2014.

The private high school will accommodate up to 450 students.

Nueva School currently operates a pre-kindergarten through eighth grade campus on Skyline Boulevard in Hillsborough and was founded in 1967.

"We are pleased to work with the Nueva School,” CSM President Michael Claire wrote in a statement. "We believe that this partnership will be beneficial to both the college and to the Nueva School. We are pleased to host the inaugural high school class and we look forward to working with their officials to ensure a successful academic year.”

The freshman class is expected to be between 75 and 100 students and will start its studies at CSM.

The new Nueva high school campus will feature a 133,000 square-foot sustainably designed facility on 2.75 acres overlooking a 12-acre public park, with flexible classrooms and seminar spaces, performing and fine arts studios, science laboratories and tech shops, an attached athletic center and gymnasium, extensive student and community center, two-level writing and research center and a future 425-seat theater.

An 18,220-square-foot garage for parking is also part of the plan.

For more information visit the school’s website at www.nuevaschool.org/highschool, contact the admissions office at admissions@nuevaschool.org or call (650) 350-4528.
