What is Home Instruction?

Home Instruction Schools provides educational services for all school aged children (grades K-12) who are unable to attend school due to orthopedic, non-orthopedic/medical, or psychiatric reasons. Home Instruction Schools services students in all five boroughs of NYC. Home Instruction is an interim, non-diploma granting program.
