Day in the Life

General School Mission

Gandhi said, “If we are to reach real peace in this world … we shall have to begin with children.” In today’s world, it is ever more important that our children, the leaders of tomorrow, understand, appreciate and respect the differences between people, countries, governments, religions, beliefs, and customs.

An international school provides opportunities for children and their families to live these ideals daily. In an environment where children of different backgrounds work and play together, future citizens learn first-hand how we can live successfully and peacefully together.

EINY is committed to creating a student body which mirrors the world today in order to accomplish these goals.
