Tokyo International School
TIS is fully authorized to deliver the prestigious International Baccalaureate’s PYP and MYP. The two programs provide an internationally-recognized education and prepare children for easy transfer to the IB Diploma or other education systems.
TIS has developed an IB endorsed program of inquiry (POI) from Pre K – Grade 8. School ensures a continuum of learning from preschool through middle school. The POI provides a stimulating and authentic context for learning.
PRIMARY YEARS – Pre K – Grade 5 (Math, English, Science, Technology, Japanese, Social Studies, The Arts, Physical Education, Information Literacy)
MIDDLE YEARS – Grade 6 – Grade 8 (Math, Language A, Language B, Science, Technology, Humanities, The Arts, Physical and Social, Education, Japanese)
Parents are informed of their child’s progress through extensive student reports and student/parent/teacher meetings. At such conferences, students explain their progress using a portfolio with samples of their work in conjunction with their learning targets. Older students create a digital portfolio.
With the small student to teacher ratio, our teachers work with students on an individual basis for a significant amount of time. This also allows teachers readily understand and assess each student as an individual learner with distinct abilities and talents.
At TIS, there is regularly update of digital technology to ensure the students have what they need to create digital texts and products, record reflections and samples of what they have learnt, research the internet and are able to communicate instantly with others around the world. One of the core responsibilities at TIS is give our students the technology tools they need, clear learning goals.
TIS ensures the students’ transition onto their school of choice after they complete their education at Tokyo International School.
