  • Academic Program

    Academic Program
    (for English native speakers)

    This academic program is based on the highly regarded International Primary Curriculum and Early Years Curriculum (for kindergarten, primary, and elementary school children). The students learn history, geography, math, science, art, PSHE* and international mindedness through one project, which they finish by the end of the Summer School. Completing a unit like this gives them a sense of achievement.
    This program will be provided by specialist teachers from an elementary boarding school in Switzerland.
    *PSHE (Physical Social Health Education): A class consisting of a combination of health and moral education as it would be called in Japan.

    Summer Programme

    The Tokyo International School Summer Program explores various themes in English. In each theme there is a “Core Question”, and through a variety of activities, children look for answers under the guidance of an experienced English mother-tongue teacher. In the process, children develop their thinking skills, their expression and confidence as well as the qualities so necessary in a global era: the ability to embrace and also to challenge new ideas.
    All lessons are in English – and even complete beginners steadily acquire the foundations of English as well as the learning skills encouraged by an “exploratory curriculum” that draws on children’s curiosity.

  • Sports activities

    Sports activities

    Building on from last year’s successful formula, this year’s sport program, provided in collaboration with the “UNITED SPORTS FOUNDATION” (USF), will have “One World, One Team” as its theme. The USF provides activities to promote and convey the attractiveness of sports from a global perspective. The objectives of its program include the sense of unity and excitement of teamwork and the joy of taking on new challenges.
    Top-class athletes who have been members of Japanese national teams offer the participants hands-on help, meaning that children who are new to sports activities can also enjoy the program.

  • Evening events

    Evening events

    Jinseki Kogen is nestled in the Chugoku Mountains, the setting of many Japanese myths, and is surrounded by rich nature. Children can experience the beautiful waterfalls, rivers, and mountainous scenery throughout the four seasons.
    The location also offers a safe, secure food environment that is beneficial for growing children; the land provides highland vegetables and livestock and the Seto Inland Sea provides its own bounty.
    We conduct a range of events for the children, including astronomical observation and local cultural experiences.

Parent comments

  • The summer school seemed to be a great experience for my child. He seemed to have matured a level or two when he came home.
  • I can’t provide an experience as valuable as this, so I am really grateful.
  • It’s been two weeks since he came back, but he still happily tells me about his memories and what he learned at summer school and about his friends.
  • The children grew stronger, much more than I expected. It almost brought tears to my eyes.
  • I asked my child, “How was it?” He said “It was really fun” and he wants to go back every year.
