Everything they need

for all that comes next.

Immersive, academically challenging curricula and nature-based programming inspire our students to experiment thoughtfully, collaborate effectively, create joyfully, and think critically. They develop and share a love of challenge, resilience, creativity, and a dedication to achievement that they bring with them wherever the future takes them.

Dual Diploma

GISNY graduates earn both a New York State High School Diploma and the world-renowned German International Abitur, preparing them to attend the finest colleges and universities in the world.

Nature-Based Learning

Our nature-based program brings our youngest students outdoors for most of their school day, where they explore, learn, and play on our picturesque 20-acre campus.


From a strong bilingual start in Pre-K to targeted support and the addition of other languages, we are deeply committed to helping each student succeed. Languages at GISNY are integral to the learning experience. 


As a STEM school, GISNY emphasizes mathematics, natural sciences, and technology at all grade levels. Our students gain the fundamental skills and knowledge for future-relevant topics, courses of study, and professions.

Spiral Curriculum

Our spiral curriculum from Pre-K through grade 12, inspires students to experiment, collaborate, and think critically as they continuously build upon and expand their skills.

Building strong minds.

Growing compassionate hearts.

Our small community commits to developing your child’s heart along with their mind. Fresh faces and diverse stories create bonds and insights, helping students build emotional intelligence and community.
