University & Future Schools

At The British International School of New York we prepare our students to succeed, wherever their future may take them and at whatever stage that next move might happen.

We know this future may differ for each of our families, but there is a common strand that runs through all; to ensure our students leave us ready and able to take on the challenges of their next opportunity, prepared academically, socially and emotionally.

We recognise that deciding upon the next school can be a stressful decision and that the school can play a fundamental role in aiding the decision making process from identification of suitable schools, looking at timelines for when best to apply, exam preparation, interview technique, and advising on acceptances. 

Although our Upper School now provides an option for BIS-NY families to stay on with us until university, for those with other plans our placement continues to be an important part of our offering and a measurement of our collective success as a part of your child's journey.

I would like to thank all my teachers for the curriculum they have taught me within the classroom and for the life lessons they have taught outside of it. I am grateful for my time here and I cannot wait for my next chapter. The memories I have made here can never be forgotten and BIS-NY will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you everyone who has made my school experience the amazing one it is.
