When we asked about the schools in Japan, they said...

"The International School of the Sacred Heart (ISSH) in Tokyo is one of the best international schools in Japan. It is a Catholic school that offers a bilingual education in English and Japanese, and provides a rigorous academic program that prepares students for college and beyond. The school also offers a wide range of extracurricular activities, including sports, music, and art. The Tokyo International School (TIS) is another excellent international school in Japan. It is a private, co-educational school that offers a bilingual education in English and Japanese. The school provides a comprehensive curriculum that prepares students for college and beyond, and offers a wide range of extracurricular activities, including sports, music, and art. The Tokyo YMCA International School (TYIS) is a bilingual school in Tokyo that offers a unique educational experience. The school provides a comprehensive curriculum that prepares students for college and beyond, and offers a wide range of extracurricular activities, including sports, music, and art. The International School of Japan (ISJ) is a private, co-educational school in Tokyo that offers a bilingual education in English and Japanese. The school provides a rigorous academic program that prepares students for college and beyond, and offers a wide range of extracurricular activities, including sports, music, and art. The International School of the Kansai (ISK) is a private, co-educational school in Osaka that offers a bilingual education in English and Japanese. The school provides a comprehensive curriculum that prepares students for college and beyond, and offers a wide range of extracurricular activities, including sports, music, and art," explained one expat living in Japan.

"Visit first if possible, and any other school you may be interested in. I thought the previous reviewer was extremely unfair to the school and did not even care to get the facts straight, which is why I decided to write this review. Whether the school is right for an expat would depend on the expat. Obviously this one is not appropriate for someone wanting a monolingual education, but there were a number of sabbatical families at the school only for a year and they mostly found it a positive experience.. I visited several of the international schools in Tokyo myself and I thought this one was by far the most interesting and innovative. It depends on what one wants," said one parent with children at New International School of Japan in Tokyo.
