BIS-NY is a school of knowledge and of principles. Classic themes are taught in a breathtakingly modern, relevant and dynamic way. My son is immersed and engaged far past the time the school day is done. He is thinking, not just learning.

Introducing the I.B. P.Y.P.

The British International School of New York is proud to be authorized I.B. World School, offering the Primary Years Programme to its students between the ages of 3 and 11 years old. This framework, when combined with the depth of learning and the rigor of the English National Curriculum, and delivered in a nurturing and supportive school environment provides a truly exceptional school experience.

The aim of the PYP is to prepare all students for the intellectual challenges of further education and their future careers, focusing on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. 

Contemporary educational practice combined with the focus on the development of the whole child, the PYP offers a framework to meet children’s individual needs be they academic, social, physical, emotional and cultural. Leadership opportunities in the form of School Council positions are available to children in the Primary Years, allowing them to have a voice with not just their peers but school leadership also.

The PYP encourages students to be aware and sensitive to the experiences of others, through embedding of the Learner Profile throughout the school. The ten inspirational qualities that underpin and motivate the work of teachers, students and school provide a common language with the aim of developing internationally minded young people, who will help create a better and more peaceful world.
