GISNY provides a bilingual challenging academic curriculum and offers a wide array of extracurricular activities. It has been an incredible community for our three children who all have different strengths and needs. Teachers, staff and students have supported and inspired them along the way. Our kids are thriving academically and socially. We couldn't be more thankful.

Bilingualism, internationalism, STEM and private, tailored teaching makes for great outcomes! All 3 of my kids went to this schoolfrom the ground up, my oldest daughter graduated in 2020, got a scholarship to study biochemistry at a top university. All 3 are not just perfectly bilingual plus some decent Spanish & French but put me to shame in math and sciences (I went to a regular US high school). This school shines even among top private NYSAIS schools for it's math & sciences. From Kindergarten on they model good behaviors and teach self-discipline, respect, tolerance & critical thinking that set up the kids for long-term success. We were lucky to have this school as an option, it is a differentiator, we can see how our daughter has a competitive edge. Thank you to this school and it's great staff and teachers!

Our two children have been at GISNY since 2015 and they love it. We are a multinational and multilingual family. We moved from NYC to Westchester so that our children could benefit from this wonderful campus with lots of outdoor space and a rigorous curriculum, with a focus on independent and critical thinking. Our children started in elementary school and are now in middle and high school. Overall, we are very satisfied with the excellent bilingual education (plus Spanish and French program), the teachers and the facilities (new library, cafeteria, bright classrooms) and a supportive school community. In the past year we have been particularly impressed with the Covid-19 response and the swift switch to remote learning in spring 2020 when all the schools had to close. The students received continued high-level education and had a structured school day. Since the beginning of the new school year 2020/21 the school is doing everything to keep the school open and safe. At GISNY graduates earn both a NY State High School Diploma and the German International Abitur. The German International Abitur allows the graduates to apply to excellent universities around the world.
