Welcome!

Each school year is characterized by many new faces, new students, as well as their parents.

The students usually adapt very quickly to their new environment, partly because of the help and guidance they receive from their classmates, who may also have had the experience of being new and in a foreign place themselves.

The aim of the Newcomers' Club is to support these new families while they are getting accustomed to their new life here in New York, and to build a strong school community. Get togethers, breakfasts and other socializing events are hosted to provide an opportunity to chat, to get to know each other or maybe even to become close friends.

Throughout the school year, we will organize various excursions to New York City and around. An overview of the school year 21/22 will be posted on this website. Please keep in mind that all events are preliminary and subject to current Covid guidelines.

Don’t hesitate to contact us at newcomersclub@gisny.org and join the Newcomers’ Club WhatsApp chat for an up-to-date exchange on various topics.

Just send us an email, we are happy to get back to you. 

Looking forward to meeting you!
