EINY combines the best of the French system, which provided a “common core” curriculum decades before the concept took hold in America, with the best of the American approach, which encourages critical thinking, questioning, and creativity.
While the national curricula provide the framework of goals and standards, it is the teachers that do the real work. Working collaboratively, they organize the material so that the languages and subjects reinforce each other across the various grades. And they creatively motivate, guide, and instruct. They are the school's lifeblood. And they carry forward its mission.
The Ecole Internationale de New York encourages the success of each student in a diverse, multicultural environment that combines the excellence of French and American academics. The school offers students the opportunity to think critically and work independently in multiple educational systems. It aspires to develop well educated, well rounded, responsible and compassionate world citizens.
