The ISN elementary school was established in 2015, and started with students grades one to three. Based on the international baccalaureate Primary Years program, and through cooperation with the Matsumoto committee of education, ISN offers a special education program. The staff has great ambition and experience in learning and continues to offer a fundamental and balanced educational system edged towards helping children reach their greatest potential. As an entrance requirement only native English speakers or those who have been attending an international school and can communicate at a high level of English, will be accepted.
We, ISN, are now an IB candidate school. In June, 2017, ISN staff members attended an in-house IB work shop for two days. Then we had an IB verification visit in October, 2017, and are authorized as IB school in December, 2017.
ISN explores our daily program (Units of Inquiry) based on this IB learner profile. Students’ learning prpgresses and expands their skills, inquiry and action. Assessments will be reported individually based on each student’s progress.
We believe that what we are targeting, that is, International mindness will radiate from the heart of each students.
