Nord Anglia International School New York (NAISNY)
We offer a truly engaging global education for students aged 2 14 years nestled in the heart of the iconic East Village, New York.
Our school is dynamic, creative, based around a strong community of over 100 students accommodated over six floors of our school, and with a strong ambition to grow over the next few years.
Enrolment is selective, based on the student’s ability to access our international curriculum and families wishing to align with our international ethos, with children from over 30 countries currently enrolled in our school.
We aim to inspire our students to learn, explore and develop into confident, creative and balanced global citizens. We offer an unparalleled standard of personalised education with opportunities for students to explore their creative side, to learn from the very best international teachers and organizations and meet students from around the world in order to prepare them for the journey ahead.
Our students are able to take advantage of the unique opportunities afforded to them by being New York City, including our Nord Anglia Collaborations in UNICEF and Juilliard, as well as our Artists in Residence program, in which students work closely with New York City-based artists.
Students are taught by highly-skilled class teachers in the lower school (2s Year 4) and specialist teachers in the upper school (Year 5 - 9).
Our students love coming to school every day to learn with their friends, amazing teachers, and inspired and talented artists.
Being friendly, creative and ambitious, our students are an absolute delight and have a thirst for learning within our tightly knitted community.
