Queens is the most ethnically diverse and the second most populous borough in New York City. There are 800 languages spoken and countless exotic cuisine options. Located at the heart of Queens where Kew Gardens and Forest Hills meet, the Kew-Forest School has reflected the unique cultural diversity: Our students represent approximately 70 different nationalities and speak at least 30 different languages at home.
Being only 11 miles away from Manhattan, K-F enriches students’ educational experience with museum workshops, Broadway shows, and corporate tours, etc. Outside the school, international students have numerous forms of entertainment that only NYC can provide: exploring world cuisines, finding street art, attending world-class concerts/shows, wandering in Central Park, and seeing the latest fashion in SoHo. The students are fully immersed in an English speaking environment and western lifestyle while receiving encouragement to maintain and share their unique cultural identities.
