Our MISSION at NEW SCHOOL is to HELP students ACCEPT responsibility for their actions, BELIEVE in themselves, and LEARN to set and ACHIEVE goals. We believe that all students can SUCCEED, and that in a structured, caring, democratic, student-centered,

environment, every individual can make significant PROGRESS toward reaching their POTENTIAL. 


Our motto: “Never give up!” 


Welcome to New School

New School is a credit recovery high school serving students in the Pajaro Valley Unified School District.  Students earn credits at an accelerated rate, allowing each to reach their goal of graduating on time.  Some students choose to return to a traditional program while others decide to remain at New School through graduation. 

New School staff and its community partners offer students a variety of services to help each reach their academic goals:


  • Small class sizes
  • Individualized instruction
  • Focus on SBAC preparation
  • Academic counseling
  • Athletics
  • Behavioral counseling
  • Substance abuse counseling
  • Employment assistance

Our Campus Has Video Surveillance of Common Areas.
