Last September marked the 10th anniversary of The British International School of New York (BIS-NY), the first and only school in the New York City area to offer the high standards of excellence of the English National Curriculum delivered through the portable, global and inquiry-based framework of the International Baccalaureate (I.B.) in the Primary and Middle Years for children from the age of three. Over the past decade the school has grown in both size and stature, proudly placing students in the top schools locally in New York, as well as back in the United Kingdom and further afield across the globe. Its placement record is testimony not only to the quality of teaching, but also the preparedness with which students leave the school.

As BIS-NY passes this milestone, the school is delighted to announce the expansion to an Upper School from September 2018, with applications now open for ninth grade (UK Year 10). The school will extend each year thereafter to offer a full programme through 12th grade to enable students to pursue a programme of study at BIS-NY for university entrance.

Recent authorisation by Cambridge International (the non-teaching arm of Cambridge University) will enable the school to deliver an Upper programme built around the respected and rigourous International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) at 16, and Advanced Level Examinations (A Level) at 18. These courses are taken by over a million students in more than 160 countries around the world and are extremely highly regarded by the leading universities and colleges in the USA, UK and internationally.

Headmaster Jason Morrow expressed the school's enthusiasm for the expansion: "We are excited and proud to be the first school in the city to offer this exceptional academic programme to New York families as we know it will equip our students with the knowledge, skills and intellectual enthusiasm to thrive at university and beyond."

The project will break ground this month with retailers projected to open in summer 2019 and multi-family opening in early 2020.
