Elementary School

In June 2021, the International School of Nagano (ISN) applied to the Governor of Nagano Prefecture for approval to establish a school as an elementary school corporation to become a school recognized by the government (private school).

On December 28th 2021, International School of Nagano (ISN) became a Government licensed private elementary school. As per our goal to provide a quality holistic education to all students, we will continue to work with the local government in expanding both the accessibility and affordability of our school to all families regardless of income or background.
