About Us

 New Design is not just a high school, it’s also a “Youth Development Shop” where in addition to their academic responsibilities, students develop problem-solving, critical thinking and social-emotional skills. 

New Design High School (NDHS) is a small academic high school with a focus on design located on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. We are a college preparatory school that uses the concept of design to assist in meeting the holistic needs of adolescents. The school community believes that design and design processes allow students to engage in a more experiential form of inquiry-based learning.

Our History

In 2003, New Design took over the fourth floor of 350 Grand Street, formally home to Seward Park High School.  

New Design's founders transformed the space and the instructional expectations. They established a nurturing environment that continues to provide the highest-quality educational experience to NDHS's students.
