School Notes

  • Avenues' innovative and rigorous curriculum continues to be shaped by expert faculty, supported by our in-house R&D team. Language immersion, offered in either Chinese or Spanish, is a core part of an Avenues education from nursery to 5th grade, cultivating students who are truly proficient in a second language by the time they enter the middle grades.
  • When students reach the Upper Division, our highly collaborative and innovative curriculum affords students the opportunity to participate in signature programs such as World Course, High-Intensity Practice, Global Journeys, and the Mastery Program - a course that gives students time and space to pursue their passion.
  • Avenues` first campus opened in 2012 in New York and the second campus opened in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 2018. One year later, Avenues Shenzhen opened. With the launch of Avenues Online in 2019, Avenues began to set the new standard for online education. Avenues is currently developing campuses in Silicon Valley, Shanghai and Miami, with plans to open additional campuses around the globe.

School Reviews

Avenues is an exceptional academic experience. It prepares students to think and engage and discover their passions. I moved to NYC with my third child. All three of my children are high academic achievers. Having said that, I have experienced many schools. Avenues is by far the school that prepares a student to achieve success for the future outside of school.
