Nagoya International Senior High School was founded in 1953. A
non-profit organization - the Kurimoto Educational Institute, an
organization that also governs Koryo Junior College, the Nagoya
University of Commerce and Business Administration and its affiliated
Nagoya University of Commerce and Administration Graduate School
- serves as the school's Board of Trustees. In 2003, the Institute
formally opened a new Junior High School and dedicated a new facility
that now houses both the Junior and Senior High Schools. The school
currently offers a significantly modified nationa1 Japanese curriculum,
which features an English immersion program and emphasizes information
technology. Full--time teachers from Australia, the United States,
Canada, the United Kingdom and China work with their Japanese colleagues
in an environment that is essentially bilingual (English and Japanese).
The school currently enrolls 460 students, the vast majority of
them Japanese nationals.
Nagoya International Junior and Senior High School is committed
to the achievement of academic excellence and is characterized and
enriched by its dual-language program in Japanese and English. The
school seeks to promote humanistic values in an interactive, bilingual
environment and to inspire in its students a life-long love of learning.
It also encourages students to develop a frontier spirit,
a spirit characterized by independent, critical and creative thinking
and by intellectual courage and thoroughness. Finally, the school
prepares its students to be compassionate citizens of the
world who are respectful of differences and are committed
both to making a positive contribution to the world and to leading
a fulfilled life.
The vision of Nagoya Intemational Junior and Senior High School
is to implement a full International Baccalaureate curriculum, to
provide state-of-the-art school facilities, to develop a gifted
and multi-national faculty and to become one of the top international
schools in Japan.
