Aoba-Japan International School
Founded in 1976, A-JIS is a pre-kindergarten through grade 12, coeducational school for internationally minded families residing in Tokyo. It is a non-secular school, welcoming and respecting families from all nationalities and religions.
Provides a comprehensive curriculum, addressing all academic areas, including: English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, Japanese language classes, music, fine arts, physical education and technology/computers.
English is the language of instruction at A-JIS. All classes, except for Japanese language classes, are conducted in English and use native language resources. For students who have difficulty communicating in English, or cannot yet speak English, we have a very strong English language support program, where students are taught to read, write, and speak English in special classes preparing them to move to our mainstream program. Our English language support program has students communicating in English and ready for a regular, mainstream classroom in only one or two years.
In addition to the regular academic program, A-JIS also provides opportunities for students to participate in a number of clubs and extra-curricular activities to extend and enrich a wide variety of student interests in fun ways. Opportunities exist for students to join a number of sports teams, participate in band or choir, engage in traditional Japanese cultural activities, as well as participate in a number of other fun clubs and activities that allow students to learn new skills or develop existing ones.
