The world is but a school of inquiry

Michel De Montaigne

Even from the earliest age BIS-NY encourages trips outside of the school regularly throughout the school year.

These trips are designed to hone life skills, such as how to safely travel as a group when outside of the school buildings, and to reinforce areas of learning, skill and exploration. The added enthusiasm that a visit to a relevant place can bring to a topic is immeasurable as well as building new memories, friendships and experiences that will stay with our children beyond their school days. 

Trips focus on fostering independence, social development as well as to reinforce areas of learning covered in the classroom. Examples of trips in the Early Years include visits to Ellis Island, The MET, and the Hayden Planetarium to name a few.

Within the Middle Years, these include a residential trip to Camp Mason in addition to 'Excursion Week' when BIS-NY students visit key destinations for experiential learning that is linked to their areas of study as follows:  Washington DC (Grade 6), a week-long trip to London (Grade 7), and an exploration of the Florida Keys (Grade 8.)
