School Summary
International, US, curricula.
85 students, 3-15 yrs.

Hiroshima International School (HIS) was founded in 1962 as an independent, co-educational institution offering a full program of instruction in English to children of all nationalities living in the Hiroshima area. The school now offers an international curriculum based on both the Primary and Middle Years Programmes of the International Baccalaureate Organisation, from which authorization is being sought.

Classes throughout the school are organized into multi-aged groupings. The Early Childhood Program, ages 3-5, focuses on individual learning readiness and helps to develop social interaction. Non-native speakers of English, who need assistance in coping with standard course offerings, receive specialized English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction from pre-kindergarten through grade 10. The study of Japanese language and culture is incorporated at all grade levels. Total school enrollment is about sixty-eight with some ten nationalities represented. Hiroshima International School's philosophy enables students to fully discover, develop and utilize skills necessary to become responsible participants in the 21st century. The low teacher-to-pupil ratio is maintained to allow optimal personalized learning. A highly qualified and motivated staff helps individual students develop their intellectual, social, physical, aesthetic and personal potential, whilst respecting their individual and cultural backgrounds.

Hiroshima International School seeks to be international, not only in its student body, but also in its involvement in the local community through participation in student exchange programs, school visits, and sporting events. HIS, home of the '1000 Crane Club', receives thousands of folded paper cranes from schools around the world, which symbolize a united commitment to world peace.

The faculty consists of 11 full- and part-time teachers. Classroom teachers are certified and experience elementary/high school specialists. Other faculty members are specialists in Japanese language and culture, art, IT, ESL, drama and music.

Hiroshima International School occupies a two-storey modern facility on the outskirts of Hiroshima City. It houses classrooms, multimedia center, a computer lab, a music room and a large gymnasium. Transportation to the school is provided by two mini-buses operated by the school, or by public transportation.
