• International Parents' Group
     International flags

    This group is open to all parents who would like to learn more about the New York State High School curriculum and testing system and college application process in the U.S.A. This group is also a good forum to connect and learn about colleges outside the U.S.A. 

    We seek to help by providing opportunities to meet Rye High School staff and other international parents. Questions can be asked in smaller and more intimate settings. There are usually three meetings held during the year which are attended by the RHS Principal. The group may organize additional events, speakers or trips.

    Events are communicated via this web page, the weekly RHS PO Newsletter and via our mailing list. If you would like to be included in our mailings or have any questions, please email one of the co-chairs by clicking the links on the right side. We are happy to help and make you feel welcome.

    Scheduled events for the 2021-2022 school year:
