Parent's Review of KAIS International School in Tokyo, Japan

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

KAIS International School

In what town or city is this school located?

Tokyo

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

American International

What grade levels are represented at this school?

6-12

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Most kids take the train, although a number of students live close enough to ride their bikes.

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

KAIS is very small, but they have made great use of their space. They have an art studio, a yoga studio, a fantastic library, a darkroom, a digital music studio, and an organic garden.

While KAIS doesn't have huge sports teams, they do have a number of competitive team sports (basketball, soccer, running I think are the main ones), a robotics team, art club, reading club, chess team, cooking club, and a band.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

As KAIS only has about 35 students, the students have tons of personal support adjusting to their new environment.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

There don't seem to be a lot of active parents in the school. KAIS does organize a holiday party, a few parent outings, and an end-of-the-year graduation party.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

I would say that if your child is a high achiever and creative, this is the perfect school for them. If your child is more comfortable "getting lost in the crowd" than participating in school functions, they may feel a bit overwhelmed. The school is very much like a family - for good and for bad; it's hard to blend in and be invisible in such a small environment, but there is a lot of support, encouragement, and love there. The students really love the school and they do really well.
