WELCOME TO OUR 50th ANNIVERSARY

Fifty years have passed since Karen Stone-McCown opened the doors of a rented property in Menlo Park, creating a haven to educate and inspire students of high potential.

Nueva has never been more true to those roots. Now two campuses with a population grown exponentially from those first days in 1967, our principles of gifted education enable our students to soar in our inclusive, empathic community that values innovation.

This year we reflect on where we’ve come from, celebrate where we are today, and dream about where we’ll take our future.
