About Our School
An abundance of natural light, coupled with stunning river views, creates a warm, stimulating and child-centered atmosphere at The British International School of New York (BIS-NY).
Step inside our facilities and you’ll notice the striking classrooms, equipped with state-of-the-art interactive whiteboard technology. By combining traditional elements such as reading rugs, areas for circle time and dynamic play with modern technology the school provides a truly effective learning arena.
Our wireless campus allows classes seamless access to the internet. In addition, visits to the library and media center are designed to foster love of reading while introducing students to the excitement and potential of research both online and through written text.
In the art studio, music wing and science laboratory our students are encouraged to explore and take advantage of all the resources on offer. BIS-NY offers an on-site swimming pool, two playgrounds and a number of indoor, flexible-use spaces. The school also makes use of additional nearby facilities, including the East River track and fields and the next door Hunter College Brookdale gymnasium.
