International Schools in New York City


New York is the city of immigrants. The school system accounts for all of the international students that want to learn (or retain) a second language in a native level and for expat families who prefer to preserve their language and educational system from their country of origin.

Though very expensive compared to public school, many International Schools are more flexible in accepting foreign credits and catering to student's needs. This comes at a price as annual can easily reach upwards of $30,000 beginning with pre-school.
