English schools in Japan
Being an authorized IB World School there is a common theme of inquiry and curiosity that lies at the heart of everything we do at K. International. This is something that is obvious from the moment that you enter our classrooms from Kindergarten to Grade 12. You will see our students involved in a range of activities that encourage them to ask questions, to challenge their thinking and to build on their understanding of the world.
As our mission statement explains our vision for learning centers around helping students to develop responsible choices and meaningful contributions. These two ideas that are encouraged and built upon daily through the opportunities and classroom activities that we provide for all of our students.
