    About Us

    In 1994 Don Eggleston and Albino Garcia started New School Community Day School at the  La Manzana Community Resources Center on Main Street in Watsonville. The school moved to its current location, 165 Harkins Slough Road, behind Landmark Elementary in 2007.
     
    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!”
