About The Space

New Roads School is a richly diverse and active educational community, reflective of the kaleidoscope of cultures, ethnicities, beliefs, and orientations that make Los Angeles so vibrant.  We believe in reaching out to the community in which we live; now we have the opportunity to invite you in to explore and utilize the wonderful spaces in our beautiful Capshaw-Spielberg Center for Arts and Educational Justice, and to join with us in creating genuine, original, evolving education.

The Ann and Jerry Moss Theater, completed in February 2013, is a state-of-the-art, 350 seat (9 of which are wheelchair accessible) professional performance space with acoustics designed by Yasuhisa Toyota, acoustician for The Music Center’s Walt Disney Concert Hall. The Moss serves as the home for New Roads School’s vibrant performing arts programs and as a resource to the entire community.
