United Nations International School - Manhattan Campus Reviews

I am rating for the campus in Queens Manhattan. It's against the philosophy of "the United Nations International School (UNIS) was established in 1947 by a group of United Nations parents to provide an international education for their children, while preserving their diverse cultural heritages"
The parents of this campus are mostly not UN parents who have to pay a full amount of tuition, are arrogant, ambitious who pushed their children to achieve beyond their ability and thriving this school atmosphere became intense peer competitive to each other. This school is to be closed soon because not many Queens parents afford to send their kids to. They accept all kind of families who could afford. I am so sad to see the downfall of this school and their abusive of UNITED NATIONS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL philosophy. Since the teachers are good but they need a job.

This school is great, but it's really not that diverse. There's no way there's the same number of white and hispanic students. There are two latino students in my grade so I don't know where that figure came from. Also the school has a psychologist but she's awful.. Don't come to her if you are in need. This school is more worried about covering their tracks than helping students in some situations. But most students will never be in such situations in their academic lives, so you'll most likely be fine. Good luck!

Btw the teachers are really amazing people so that basically makes up for the corruption in the administration.. and the academics are seriously good. If you want to send your child here, do it as early as possible so they can learn a second language starting in Kindergarten.
This school doesn't care about education and learning whatsoever. We got barely any homework, and we rarely had assessments in the core subjects. UNIS has lots of support for children who are struggling in school. But what about the children who want to learn, excel, and make a living later on? I found that the answer to that question, for me was to either cruise along at UNIS and not learn anything, or to change schools, since there really was no option to excel at UNIS. The reason why I did stay at UNIS for 2 and a half school years, was because it was so diverse. So if you are moving to New York, looking for a school for your children, you may consider UNIS. It is a good place to start off with, since it is so diverse. But then, I advise you to find a more academic school. The sooner you make the transfer, the easier it will be.
