School Life

The New York International School provides a vibrant environment with a wide range of opportunities beyond the classroom. A child's day at school is generally busy as he or she typically juggles lessons with a variety of activities such as practice in a music ensemble, a soccer match and learning lines for the school play.
 
Great importance is given to a child's conduct and behavior. School rules are few but firm and apply to pupils and staff alike. They are based on the principle of respect and consideration for others. A positive and helpful demeanor is encouraged and rewarded at The New York International School.
 
We also encourage children from an early age to take responsibility for their community.  Children contribute to decision-making in the school through Student Councils. Activities involving the wider community generally focus on developing a sense of responsibility for the common good.
 
The school runs a house system. Every child belongs to one of four houses (Saxons, Romans, Normans and Vikings). Within their houses pupils take positions of responsibility, compete against other houses in sport and music and work towards common goals in a range of areas.
 
The New York International School is a dynamic and relaxed place where children can begin to discover answers to who they want to be and what they want to do.
