• Congratulations to Adam Goudjil

     Congratulations! Your student, Adam Goudjil has been selected as a winner for the outstanding poetry entry submitted to the New York City Department of Environmental Protection’s 31st annual Water Resources Art and Poetry Contest. The entry was beautifully executed and shows genuine understanding of – and appreciation for – New York’s water resources. More than 1,700 watershed and New York City students participated in the contest this year.

    All participating students are invited, with up to two guests, to attend the May 16th celebration. Those students with winning poetry and art, called Water Champions, will be invited on stage to receive their certificates. We hope that your Water Champion, Adam, and your other Art and Poetry participants (called Water Ambassadors), will also be able to attend.

    HS47 (31R047) CSI High School for International Studies

The mission of The College of Staten Island (CSI) High School for International Studies is to prepare students for college and, ultimately, success in an interconnected world. All students will study world history, languages and affairs; all classes focus on developing student literacy and critical thinking skills. When students graduate from this innovative, small school, they will have the necessary knowledge and skills to build a strong foundation for a career in an internationally oriented profession and to participate responsibly and ethically as a global citizen.

Small schools mean rigor, relevance and relationships 

A dedicated expert faculty provides rigorous, inquiry-based instruction and lead small advisory groups, which gives focused guidance to every student throughout the high school years. Currently, the high school has 485 students.

What are international studies? 

International studies means learning about the geography, history, culture and languages of other world regions. All courses will examine themes of international inter-dependency.

Why does it matter? 

Currently, one in six U.S. jobs is tied to international trade. Careers in the arts, science, academia, healthcare and many other sectors also depend on international exchange. This will only increase in the coming decades. The world of tomorrow is being shaped in CSI High School’s classrooms today.
