International Parents' Group

  • Welcome to the new 2020-2021 school year,

    The International Parents’ group is open to newcomers and returning parents who are not familiar with the New York State High School curriculum and testing system. We invite guest speakers from different departments and create opportunities for new parents to meet Rye High School staff and other international parents.

    In the challenging environment of Covid-19, the International Parents’ group will try to meet and organize opportunities to learn while keeping safe. Below is information on events scheduled for this school year. More events will be added so make sure to check in for updates.
