Japanese International School is an international, co-educational school offering the I.B. Primary Years Programme for student from the age of 4 years old (Reception class) up until 11 years old (Primary 6). Our students come from all over the world and are taught in the medium of English.
Entry to the school is based on a completed application form, followed by an interview at the school. For younger children we try to arange group interviews in which the children can comfortably play and relax - 'playdate style'. Older students are sometimes interviewed in small groups or as individuals, should applications warrant this. The most important criteria for interview is the child's ability to comfortably access the curriculum of the school. The PYP programme is the school curriculum and is a language intensive programme taught in English. We require that the students are comfortable using English as a language of conversation, research and debate. We do offer ESL support for some students whom we believe will gain from our curriculum and who will contribute to the aims and mission statement of the school.
Reception Class interviews for August 2019 will be held in the week beginning 14th January 2019. All students who will be interviewed will be sent an appointment letter in December 2017. All applicants are asked to confirm their interview with the school office on #2834 3531. These interviews will be in groups and have a 'playdate' style structure allowing the children to participate in a range of activities in as stress-free an environment as possible.
Primary 1 Class interviews will be held in the week beginning 21st January 2019. Places for Primary 1 will be limited to around 5 or 6 only, due to the presence of our Reception Class already in the school. Our Reception Class of around 20 students will become around 25 in Primary 1, so we are able to admit more students for the following year.
