Elementary school

The Elementary grades at ISN were established in 2015, and started with grades 1 to 3. Based on IB PYP (International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme), and in collaboration with Matsumoto board of education, ISN offers a huge variety of learning experiences to expand each student’s ability to maximize their potential. We respect all students’ individuality, and use differentiated learning strategies to allow students to become the masters of their own learning. This is the cornerstone to continued, successful, and meaningful education.

About IB

The Primary Years Programme (PYP) is one of the educational programmes developed by IB for young learners. IB creates a global standard of education, with focus on student-centred learning, giving students both ownership over their own learning, and a globally recognised qualification.

Seasonal Programmes
