Our NuVuX network includes private and public schools which are passionate about creating change and infusing education with creativity and 21st century skills.
Our partners span the globe from North America to Europe to Asia. Below are a few of our NuVuX partners and details on how we partner with them. We work with each of our partners to create custom programs and offer resources to best support students and teachers on the ground at the school.
