About New Vista

In 2006, David Stephen founded New Vista Designs for Learning – a Boston-based consulting firm that works with schools, districts, charter management organizations (CMOs), architectural firms, and foundations across the U.S. and abroad to facilitate the design of 21st century, inquiry-based, and technology-rich school programs and the facilities that house them. New Vista often works in partnership with a national network of colleagues and organizations that have diverse expertise in curriculum and facility design.
