The New York International School opens on the Upper East Side for ages 2-13

The New York International School is opening this fall, welcoming students from Pre-Nursery to Grade 8 (ages 2-13). The school combines high academic standards, an international perspective and a Spanish or Chinese language immersion program. It has a challenging and stimulating curriculum and a low student-teacher ratio, with the aim of enabling children to attain excellence in English and Math, speak Spanish or Chinese fluently and acquire a passion for learning. The school has a generous financial aid program available at Preschool and Lower School to all families who need it.

The New York International School is located in a landmark building at 4 East 90th Street, on NY’s Upper East Side, next to Central Park and right on Museum Mile. NYIS is established by one of the world’s leading school networks, with schools in America, Europe and Asia, a tradition of excellent academic results and top college placements.

The school follows a rolling admissions process and a fast response policy to alleviate families from the stress of NY school admissions. The school is now accepting applications for fall 2015-16 and 2016-17. For more information, visit www.nyis.org.
