About New Lebanon School
New Lebanon School serves students in Preschool through 5th grade. The new building was designed to accommodate an increased population in the NLS attendance area, as well as to provide for preschool classes and magnet seats as part of the District racial balance plan.
Located atop sloping banks and bordered by natural habitat wetlands, this elementary school has the capacity to serve close to 375 students in grades PreK-5 with an International Baccalaureate program. The goal remains to attract an intra-District magnet school population interested in the research and evidence based IB learning model taught in a small classroom setting.
The new school contains 21 general classrooms, 4 dedicated classrooms for art, music, and science, a new media center, gymnasium, cafeteria, playground, and other support spaces for children, teachers, and school administration.
