Marist Brothers International School is a K-12 academic institution that has been serving the Kobe and Kansai communities since 1951. We can offer your child an intensive range of academic program following the highest standards of the California state curriculum, while maintaining a personal atmosphere with small class sizes. Marist is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and is a member of the East Asia Regional Council of Overseas Schools.
Marist Brothers International School is a modern educational institution with features which include: playgrounds, art studios, modern computer laboratories, a gymnasium, a well-stocked library, a fully-equipped music department, science laboratories, and a cafeteria.
Marist Bothers International School enjoys a fine reputation in the Kobe area for several reasons. First is its strong sense of ‘family’, meaning that Marist students, staff, and parents care for one another and demonstrate that care in practical everyday situations.
Secondly, the Marist administration and teachers are committed to providing the best education possible to each individual from Montessori to grade 12. This means that not only does good teaching take place, but research into best practices, professional development and a rigorous teacher evaluation process. As a result our graduating students each year are offered places and scholarships at excellent colleges and universities in the United States, Australia, Europe, Canada and Japan.
The third platform in Marist’s reputation is that it makes provision for the whole child, providing opportunities to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences outside the classroom. Sports, band and choir, volunteering in the community, Model United Nations, fund-raising for world relief, public speaking, art and haiku competitions are some of the many opportunities available to Marist students. In this way, they develop socially, discover new talents, learn responsibility and have fun.
