Who We Are -

Since 1971, Blacksburg New School has been a school woven together by community, togetherness, and a dedicated partnership of playful students, wise teachers, and engaged parents. Our school prides itself in high academic standards with social interaction and conversation at the core of our curricula.

Small class sizes on a beautiful campus engender learning that is up close and personal. Students learn to comfortably and kindly interact with peers, with students from different grade levels, and with adults. They are learning how to be a friend, resolve conflicts in healthy ways, and ask thought-provoking questions.
