Our campus in Jamaica Estates, Queens is a K-8 school and our Manhattan campus, overlooking the East River, is K-12. UNIS was one of the founding schools of the International Baccalaureate (IB) and was among those awarding the first diplomas. The comprehensive K-12 curriculum prepares UNIS students for the IB, and the school’s internationally recognized academic standards enable our students and to go on to study in top colleges and universities in the United States and worldwide.
