Prospective Parent Tours 

We are accepting applications for fall, 2022, and beyond.




RSVP dates 

The New School-West offers prospective parents and caregivers an opportunity to learn about our facility. You’ll meet our Founder, Roleen Heimann, and a currently enrolled parent to learn of our views on child development and our approach to education. A tour is the first step in applying to NSW.


You can be added to our wait pool by taking a tour and submitting an application. We are offering a live and interactive online tour during COVID-19 restrictions and when they are lifted, we will resume our on-ground tours.


There is a $30 processing fee. You will hear of acceptance or continued wait pool status in February of the year your child would qualify to attend. We accept children when they are 3 by September. The school year begins in August. We keep our wait pools until the child is of kindergarten age, so please update us with any changes in information. Click here to RSVP for a tour
