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.

It all started…

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.
