Queens is the most ethnically diverse and the second most populous borough in New York City. There are 800 languages spoken and countless international cuisine options. Located at the heart of Queens where Kew Gardens and Forest Hills meet, the Kew-Forest School reflects this rich cultural diversity: our community represents over 70 different nationalities and speaks over 30 different languages at home.
Being only 11 miles away from Manhattan, K-F enriches students’ educational experience with numerous forms of entertainment that only NYC can provide: trying out world cuisines, finding street art, attending world-class concerts and shows, exploring Central Park, art galleries and museums. Students are fully immersed in an English-speaking environment and American lifestyle while being encouraged to maintain and share their distinct cultural identities.
