Prospective Students

The East-West School of International Studies offers students an educational experience that is diverse and competitive. Our small school setting allows teachers to nurture the academic and social growth of students. We strive to help our learners build leadership skills and provide them with the tools necessary for college and beyond.

At East-West, students enrich their understanding of the relationship between Eastern and Western philosophies. Students study either Chinese, Japanese, or Korean languages and culture. Our students are passionate about the Asian curriculum and have opportunities to travel internationally during the summer. Explore our website, visit our school, and get to know our East-West family.
