The Nueva School is an powerful example of a LEED Gold building which creates an ecology of learning for current and future students. The school is a creative laboratory for learning about sustainability in a bright, innovative design. The integration of exterior and interior spaces is inspirational and refreshing. Nueva selected an excellent site for a high school which draws students from the region via Caltrain. The result is a reduction in automobile traffic which will in turn reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Utilizing natural ventilation, day-lighting and photovoltaic panels, this Green Building exceeds the 2030 Challenge of carbon neutrality by using 65% less energy than a typical high school.
