From the very first squeak of their gym shoes at the entrance of Nagoya International School (NIS), students can feel there s a different passion here. Yes, our focus is to pass knowledge forward. But we are also readying students for an increasingly complex world. We want our students to take their final steps from our campus prepared for the adventures ahead whether they leave after 2nd grade or as graduating seniors.

This is why one of our critical roles is also to foster lifelong curiosity. We want every student to be well equipped to follow their dreams, whether it s a thirst for more knowledge, a passion for art or music, or discovering ways to be better global citizens. At Nagoya International School (NIS), children have experiences that build critical thinking skills, opportunities to tackle new challenges, and forums to seek answers to hard questions. They find a solid foundation of learning and values from which to grow and mature.

Structured along an American model of education, our English-language, college-preparatory curriculum is the backbone of the Nagoya International School (NIS) program. This integrated, comprehensive plan starts with how we teach our youngest children in the ECP (Early Childhood) and continues through how we guide those ready to step out into the world after high school graduation. The curriculum provides well-defined benchmarks that prepare our students for future education. At the same time, it s a curriculum that encourages all of us to celebrate uniqueness as we encourage achievements of each individual.

Over the past decade, we have worked to create a facility that best meets our needs today and creates the infrastructure for the next generation of students. Our commitment is to have a campus that makes the best use of space, whether for chemistry lab or musicals, writing seminars or musicals, varsity basketball or sculpture class. In 2004 we completed a complete renovation of the ECP and Raymond buildings, housing the library, computer lab, preschool, elementary and high school classrooms. In the summer of 2006 the school will resurface the athletic field and elementary playground, providing a new soccer field, baseball field, tennis and basketball courts.

What began on these hills of Nagoya 40-years ago to meet a pressing local need has become a school that students aspire to, one that will challenge and prepare them for life beyond our walls. It is a school that keeps kids curious, for life.
