Relocating from the British Education System
If you are relocating from the UK or from a school that follows the English National Curriculum, BIS-NY can provide that quality, consistency and peace of mind in a new city as you relocate.

At BIS-NY we deliver the English National Curriculum through the framework of the International Baccalaureate (IB) for students from Nursery (Bees) up until Year 9 (Grade8). For Upper School we offer the world renown and highly portable IGCSE and A-Level programme to offer our students maximum flexibilty and depth of learning as they complete high school.
Our curriculum provides children with robust and internationally recognised qualifications, as well as an approach to learning that feels familiar as they settle in a new learning environment. In addition to this tried and tested academic curriculum, the I.B.'s cross-curricular approach to learning provides an inquiry based framework, building connections between subjects, promoting critical thinking motivating and preparing students for the next stage of their education.
When it's time to relocate back to the UK, or move onwards into another international setting - you can feel reassured that your children are ready and able to make that transition, prepared academically and socially for the next challenge ahead.
