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.
