・The school is committed to educating both Japanese and foreign students to be international, critical thinkers and lifelong learners by encouraging their curiosity and learning through inquiry.
・The world is constantly changing, therefore we must discover all we can know about what that world would be like in the future, to prepare and empower our children to be open-minded, reflective, and confident for the challenge.

UPBEAT Curriculum consists of the International Baccalaureate PYP Program, which cultivates a person who is able to think for themselves and act on their own.


“Prep.School” looks after children starting at the age of 0-2 years old. This course is aimed at nurturing “independence”, “understanding of group living rules”, the “ability to think in English”, and the “ability to auditorily process English sounds naturally”.

pre school

“Preschool” promotes a balanced comprehensive education such as “theme education incorporating presentation” and “math / science / social studies / music / P.E. / swimming / show & tell”. Based on the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP) Early Years Stage for preschoolers from 3-6 years old.


“Elementary” applies to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP) offered at our school. It offers students the opportunity to achieve high level English skills through the six transdisciplinary subjects to develop inquiry while simultaneously developing a mature sense of humanity, global consciousness and be problem thinkers. Both of these goals led students to intercultural understanding and respect to be international mindedness.
