Founded in 2009, York International School is an independent, co- educational school for academically willing children aged between 2 1/2 and 18. All York International Schools have their own range of classrooms, science laboratories, computer rooms and libraries designed specifically for use in the relevant age groups in that section of the school. This allows the school to give each student the facilities best suited to their own personal needs in an environment where progression through the school is clearly defined and understood by students and their parents. Such concern for clear avenues of development determines the strategic planning of the school in every field, not just academic. The school is committed to educating the whole child and offers a broad range of extra-curricular activities. This means that we aim to ensure that every student has the opportunity to find, excel in and be rewarded for those things they do best or enjoy the most.
