Parent's Review of Kyoto International School in Kyoto, Japan

Nov 24, 2015

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

Kyoto International School

In what town or city is this school located?

Kyoto

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

International

What grade levels are represented at this school?

preschool to 8

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

bus

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

The school does not have a great deal of money so the facilities are not great but adequate.

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

Girls seem to settle well here but Western boys are generally unhappy and most leave. There is a bullying problem from the local children toward the 'outsider' boys that the school refuses to recognize--in part I think because the local children are often of mixed parents, so it is assumed that there will not be a problem. Local schools are a better option and provide after-school language transition tutoring.
