United Nations International School - Manhattan Campus Reviews

A wonderful school with the most diverse student body. Brilliant and passionate teachers. An extraordinary curriculum. A wonderful music program. Millions of opportunities. Nice brilliant and kind kids, mostly. A real hope "for a better world" the school motto. But a trap for students who join in late, so many stories of superstar students in their home or previous school who crash under the pressure, the expectations for assertiveness, time management, organisation skills and don't get the support they need. Too bad, what a waste of opportunity for those, what a wonderful place for the ones who succeed!

UNIS is reasonably academic from what I've experienced. Like any other school there are some awful teachers but the good ones for the most part outweigh the bad. The language department definitely needs some more work. The teachers often have an entitled mindset on how they talk to students i.e. dress codes when the school itself has a very loose dress code. There's currently a drug epidemic there but the diversity is good. The IB becomes more about strategy and shortcuts and less about actually learning the material which is detrimental when going to college. UNIS depends on who you are. Years ago when I was in 8th grade a black girl in my grade was called a whore by a math teacher called Ms. Curran. She still works there and this teacher called her this to a classroom of students when she wasn't in the class. She was no ambassador's kid hence why that teacher is still there. In their plight to make themselves look good they often forget how to take care of their students.
Amazing atmosphere, great people. Not the best academics or teachers, and sometimes people have a hard time fitting in. But that's usually rare, and the overall atmosphere, culture, curriculum, extracurricular activities, freedom, facilities, and people make up for it.
