Prospective Students

The East West School of International Studies offers students an educational experience that is diverse and competitive. Our small school setting allows teachers to nurture the academic and social growth of students. We strive to help our learners build leadership skills and provide them with the tools necessary for college and beyond.

At East-West students enrich their understanding of the relationship between Eastern and Western philosophies. Students study either Chinese, Japanese, or Korean languages and culture. Our students are passionate about the Asian curriculum and have opportunites to travel internationally during the summer.

Registering into a New York public school:

In order for a student to register into a New York City public school,  the parent and the child must both appear, and must present:

  1. Verifiable proof of residence (see Section VII);
  2. Child’s birth certificate or passport;
  3. Child’s immunization records;

Tours and Open Houses:

As a small school with limited staff, East-West is not set up to provide individualized tours. We have an open house in November for prospective students and new students will be attending a mandatory day-long orientation. Please refer to our Public Calendar for updated dates.

Special Education:

We offer SETSS, CTT and other services. We are participating in a DOE pilot that seeks to provide students with as much classroom inclusion as possible. Please email Samantha Kramer, our Special Education Department Chair, at with any questions about our services.
