"Building World Citizens of Tomorrow"



“In 1999, I recognized the need to offer flexible learning options for students with a variety of needs within the International Community of Tokyo. I realized that the traditional structure of education was inappropriate for some young learners and set about creating a small school that provides a quality, personalized education in an inclusive learning environment. I am proud of our achievements to date and believe that our Not-for-Profit status and our committed and professional staff, will enable us to continue to provide the highest possible education services to students who benefit from a more individualized education program.”

ABOUT US

 

At International Secondary School, we believe that every student is a unique individual. We strive to assist students in developing their learning strengths and offer support to address their needs. We achieve this through a variety of educational modalities and a high degree of personal attention

FAMILY

A small school environment ensures that students are well known to each other and to the staff. Our teachers take a personal interest in their students, and families are well connected to the school.

Typical descriptions of our school often include a sense of belonging and connection.

Parents articulate how well they feel their children are being taken care of. We are all part of the ISS Family.

PERSONALISED LEARNING

Our core classes are limited to a maximum of 8 students to give our students as much attention and access to their teacher as possible. All teachers are available 4 afternoons a week for Extended Instructional Time where students can access their teachers for additional help.

All students have access to approved ISS accommodations. The specific test and classroom accommodations will be determined in consultation with the student, their parents, and members of our professional teaching staff.

In the review process accommodations can be added or dropped depending upon the growth and development of the student.

STAFF

Our staff is reflective of the international composition of our school, with teachers from Canada, the USA, the UK, Ireland and Japan. The entire ISS faculty is accredited through their local professional organizations.

Teacher professional development is pursued in a variety of means so the staff stays current in terms of educational philosophy and practice. Our staff are engaged in continual course work through the National Association of Special Education Teachers.

Our student body is comprised of boys and girls from grades 5 to grade 12 from all over the globe. Our school of 40 students is represented by over 15 different nationalities. In a small school setting each student can make a significant contribution to their school, and so each student is challenged to share their gifts and talents to make ISS a wonderful place to go to school.
