Dear Families,

A very warm welcome to Nord Anglia International School New York (NAISNY). At NAISNY, we invite children on a journey to learn critical thinking, promoting both intellectual and personal growth. We believe in an inclusive and global approach that builds on the strength of an international network of over 80 Nord Anglia Education schools and strong local engagement.

Based in New York, a vibrant and dynamic city, we open our doors every Monday to welcome children to a week of learning opportunities. Personalized education and the development of the whole child are at the center of our ethos. Our school is designed as a calm and creative learning environment, with room for each child to thrive. We want every child to feel empowered and confident, so they'll make a positive impact on their community and beyond.

Being part of a global network of schools means that our students benefit from a community of high-quality, ambitious educational institutions connecting through our global campus. This gives our students amazing virtual opportunities to connect with peers across our global family of schools. We also offer both residential and overseas trips, with access to summer sports and art camps in the US and Europe.

We firmly believe that your children will have wonderfully unique learning experiences here. At NAISNY, we're proud to deliver a contemporary international education based on the standards of the English National Curriculum. Through our small class sizes, alongside high-quality personalized learning, our team of outstanding educators will help students flourish.

We witness excellent progress from the two-year-olds on our Early Years floor through Lower and Upper School, preparing them for the very best high schools in the US or overseas. In addition to academic excellence, our school ensures the growth of our students’ creativity, resilience, and global mindedness, so they're well-equipped to embrace the future.

We want our students to develop the skills they need to lead and manage projects holistically— whether on global or environmental issues or academic challenges. We do this through a world-class curriculum, enhanced by our collaborations with pioneering institutions, such as the world-renowned Juilliard School in the performing arts, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Creativity, STEAM, and the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals are ingrained in every learning experience at NAISNY. Seeing our students grow from these opportunities is very inspiring.

I look forward to welcoming you to NAISNY and for you to experience our vision of empowering our diverse community as globally responsible citizens, ensuring that your child will leave our school with everything they need for success — whatever they choose to be or do in life.

Once again, we welcome you to the NAISNY family as your child embarks on a delightful journey of academic and personal growth, this academic year and beyond.
