FLUSHING INTERNATIONAL
High School

Founded in 2004, is to serve recent immigrants to the United States who are new learners of English.  Our goal is to help each student learn to read, write and communicate clearly in English while maintaining their native language.  Our students will learn to use their minds well to think about real-world issues.  They will use what they learn to become successful in school as well as in the workplace, and they will learn to speak up for themselves and for their community.
