A global curriculum
KIUA is mindful of the Japanese school curriculum, but chooses to incorporate a more western approach to education - one of self-directed study.
Classes are conducted in both English and Japanese.
A majority of our incoming elementary students enroll as 1st graders. We offer 12 years of bilingual education.
Elementary school: grade 1-5
Middle school: grade 6-8
High school: 9-12
High achievers are promoted if they are deemed mature enough to cope with advanced placement.
Self-directed students know that
learning is fun.
School is not only about completing assignments.
Students must take responsibility to do research and begin to understand issues.
Students learn practical ways to attain their goals.
Students polish their presentation and communication skills.
