The school offers preschool classes (ages 3 and 4), primary school (K-G6), and middle school class G7 (2020-2021 Academic Year). Shinagawa International School is fortunate to have teachers and students from over 30 different nationalities which form a great mixture of different experiences and cultures and results in the formation of a multicultural and diverse learning community. SIS celebrates its diversity not only in regular class activities but also by hosting an International Children’s Festival every year. Teachers design learning activities that empower students’ academic achievement and personal passion for life-long learning. Social development is a high priority at SIS, and its mixed age group After-School Program activities promote interaction among children of different ages. All lessons, activities, and school events are designed based on students’ cultures, beliefs and backgrounds. SIS’s unique cultural features are respected and celebrated in order to encourage understanding and appreciation of diversity.
