• The East-West School of International Studies was recently nominated as a "Respect For All School".

    This means we are one of the New York City Department of Education's safest schools.

  • The 12th grade Government and Economics class went to the Museum of the City of New York ( on Thursday, February 8 to study Activism.

    The students are working on proposals for a 10-15 page senior thesis term paper and Mr. Oppenheim wanted to inspire them to consider many forms of historical and current activism as a lens toward crafting meaningful argumentative papers advocating political, social, or economic changes in the world today.

    While there they also visited galleries celebrating the history of New York City and a vision of the future of this great city. These exhibits explored hopes and dreams and considerations such as hosing types, parks, costs, and environmental impact of development.
