Our Online Community Platform
The New School community uses the secure communication platform HEARD as a way for our community to connect, share news and happenings in the classroom, organize events, enlist volunteers, and build community. On HEARD, communication is organized by groups -- school, grade, class, HSC committees, sports teams, etc.
HEARD works on any device and is viewable via your web browser and can be downloaded as an iOS app.
