Accreditation

ISB is accredited by the New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS) and is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).

ISB is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School authorized for the Primary Years Program (PYP) and Middle Years Programme (MYP). Learn more about the IB at ISB here.

In addition to ISB's accreditation by NYSAIS and the IBO, the Preschool program is accredited by the French Ministry of Education, and the Lower School is accredited by the Spanish Ministry of Education.

ISB students are exposed to the core elements of these international educational systems, while incorporating New York State educational standards and learning through the inquiry-based methodology and global context of the IB. Students in both tracks acquire language in a cultural and historical context, from native speakers, allowing them to develop both linguistic and cultural fluency.

The Buddy Bench is Here!

By Dr. Liz Helbraun, School Psychologist and Lower School Counselor The Buddy Bench is an anti-bullying, pro-kindness initiative to help students find someone to play with during recess times. An American boy saw the Buddy Bench used in his school in Germany and brought the idea to the US when he returned to school here. Now Buddy Benches are being used all over Europe and the United States. I started looking into the Buddy Bench after hearing about it from a mother at ISB. What’s nice about this approach is that it’s very child-directed, rather than adult-directed. It gives our students a tool for helping peers and making friends.
