English schools in Japan
With over one hundred years of history, we are among the oldest and most respected international schools in the world. ASIJ’s traditions are complemented by our enduring commitment to continuous renewal, focusing on the needs of our globally mobile students at all times.
We are a dynamic school, eager to provide a positive and innovative learning environment that, upon matriculation, will ultimately prepare our students for successful on-going learning in universities and in future professional and personal pursuits. From pre-school through grade 12, our mission guides us. Developing compassionate, inquisitive learners prepared for global responsibilityis the ideal that we strive to uphold each day. ASIJ’s Student Learning Outcomes provide further articulation of our mission as practiced in the classroom and in co-curricular activities.
Hailing from approximately 40 countries, the vast majority of our students and their families find themselves in Tokyo on temporary assignment. Our school community provides a multicultural haven, one rich in the arts, athletics, and academics. Classes are conducted in English, following a curriculum largely drawn from the United States. Our Japanese host culture enriches our school and provides opportunities for learning, both in language classes and through academic and experiential learning opportunities. Likewise, the many cultures and nationalities that make up ASIJ provide chances to broaden and deepen our appreciation of the world in which we live.
