A very warm welcome to the United Nations International School. This is a remarkable learning community in which students from over 120 countries and staff from nearly 60 nationalities teach, learn and grow each day. Our graduates continue to play an important part in the school, and the depth of alumni relationships is testament to the enduring impact of learning together with a truly global perspective.
The UNIS curriculum, allied with the International Baccalaureate Diploma program, provides a rigorous comprehensive curriculum which prepares young people for the next phase of their education and equips them to be productive members of their own communities. Additionally, the school seeks to prepare students for the leadership that this world so urgently needs. This challenging education occurs in an optimal learning environment at both the Manhattan and Queens Campuses where students can focus on their own learning and develop the strategies for making a real difference in their own lives and communities. UNIS not only benefits from the enormous resources of the vibrant city of New York but also from the close relationship the school has with the United Nations.
Underpinned by the ideals of the United Nations, our school serves children and youth from the UN community, the diplomatic corps, the non-governmental sector and local New York families. It is this interaction of cultures and identities that provides the basis for real exploration of internationalism creating a truly unique educational experience.
The web site offers you ample information to explore the opportunities that exist at UNIS for individuals to test their boundaries and explore the breadth and depth of their potential. However, it is only through witnessing the excitement of the UNIS education in action that one can start to comprehend the possibilities for international understanding and peace in this world. I invite you to visit us.
