Summerhill International School
Summerhill takes great pride and care in creating a loving environment, a home-away-from-home and a place where colors and light stimulate the children. The classrooms are bright and vibrant and full of beautiful things, because we believe that children thrive in a beautiful environment.
Summerhill offers an all-rounded, cultural enrichment program involving a wide range of activities that enable children to experience Japanese culture to its fullest. Daily Japanese classes are part of our curriculum and we celebrate Japanese holidays and hold cultural events.
The curriculum is designed to be all-rounded, meaning physical activity is just as important as academics. In order to provide a healthy, safe, and stimulating environment for each child, Summerhill has on staff a professional gymnastics teacher who instructs basic gymnastics using equipment such as bars, balancing-beams, mats, hula-hoops, and the trampoline.
Unless the weather disagrees, the children venture out on Fresh Air Walks, utilizing the three parks that are conveniently located minutes from us. For safety, children wear bright Summerhill smocks that can be easily identified.
At Summerhill, there are an exciting range of After School Activities that are open to both our full time students and the public at large. The After School Activities offer children the chance to participate in an activity that they are interested in, such as soccer, ballet, piano lessons, lego, acrobatics and Japanese, and is open to anyone, whether enrolled at Summerhill or otherwise.
The Extended Day Program was primarily implemented for families with mothers and fathers who both work. Even for mothers who don’t work but just want a longer day to get things done, the Extended Day Program is a great solution. Hours are from 2pm to 5:30pm and is open to students who attend other day-schools as well. The schedule is designed to provide a calm and relaxing environment after a faster-paced day in class. Activities are creative and nature-oriented.
At Summerhill, there are five separate classes for children of different ages and needs. All five classes are from Monday to Friday from 9am to 2pm. The Full Moon and the Star Class/Kindergarten programs are 5 days a week programs. For the Sunrise age group we also offer a 2 day program. From 2pm to 3pm we offer after-school activities every day starting from the Half-Moon Class age group, while the youngest Sunrise/Sunset Classes have babysitting and aftercare.
