As NYC reopens, BIS-NY has been delighted to welcome back so many of its families for a return to school in-person school, 5 full days a week. Our open campus with distinct buildings, each with their own entrances and exits, allow for all our children to attend school, staying safely within their smaller classes (pods).

For more information about limited openings to join our in-person program this year, we welcome you to explore our re-opening measures. Our team is here to provide flexibility and reassurance at every stage of our admissions process to give you the support you need as you look ahead, and we are available from 8am to 6pm daily via email, telephone or live chat here on the website. We also welcome you to book a virtual visit or video call at your convenience so you can get a sense for our vibrant and welcoming community.

For families looking for next year and beyond, we are optimistic to a return to a more normal existence, but for now our admissions process is staying virtual. Applications are now open and we look forward to connecting as you consider the schools that might be the best fit for your family.

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.
