PIE (Partners in Education) is a group of Nex+Gen stakeholders (parents, students, alumni, and facilitators) who work together to keep Nex+Gen as excellent a school as it can be.  We meet monthly and try hard to provide opportunities for interested parties to get involved with the success of Nex+Gen. Here are some highlights from Fall 2018:

Facilitators – Violeta Djordjevic

Students – Patrick Archibald

Alumni – Zulema Quiroz, class of 2017

PIE is busy at work on our upcoming Winter Gala (December 8th from 6 to 9).  We will meet on Tuesday, December 4th at 6 pm to talk about how students achieve academic success at Nex+Gen.  Hope to see you there!
