What Students Are Saying

3.60 Average Rating
New School is a wonderful school, small classes and very involved student and faculty. As students we also benefit from great lectures and organized events involving highly recognized professionals in fields from fashion design to sustainable engineering. This school is everything I expected and more, after years of going to a traditional 4 yr college coming to New School was a breath of fresh air.
Saydee from Brooklyn, NY
A group of highly-motivated students goes here. New York is a difficult place to live for most, and the hard work that people put into their daily lives is the same as that of their studies. The student population is not very intimate.
