The United Nations International School (UNIS) is a K-12 non-profit, college preparatory international school, enrolling approximately 1,486 students from 115 countries. UNIS has two campuses, an urban one in Manhattan and a suburban one in Queens. Both are modern, spacious, bright and sequestered. The total staff (including administrators and support staff) numbers 256 and represents 71 countries. Teachers are chosen for their experience and sensitivity to the development and needs of children. Approximately half of the teachers have been at UNIS more than ten years.

The The United Nations International School (UNIS) was founded in 1947 to provide a rigorous program of study that not only fostered global sensibility but that also provided for entry to universities throughout the world. The academic program is K-12, culminating in the two-year International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. The United Nations International School (UNIS) accepts applications from both the international and host country communities. Admission is selective and based on the applicant's previous academic record, admissions test results, and a writing sample. Among the academic offerings are ESL, advanced French and Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, German, Italian, Japanese and Russian. Music, art and computer technology are integral to the programme of study. At the 10th grade level, students may pursue a special talent or interest, whether it be science, languages, the humanities, music or art. Tests administered are the PSAT, SAT, IB and Oxbridge. The United Nations International School (UNIS) graduates attend distinguished colleges and universities around the world.

Extra-curricular activities include the Yearbook, newspaper, literary magazines, and the annual United Nations International School/UN Conference held in the General Assembly at the United Nations. The students participate in concerts, recitals, music workshops and in such games as chess, soccer, gymnastics, basketball, softball, baseball, tennis, track and field, volleyball, swimming and cross-country skiing.
