One of the things which surprised us was the degree of human warmth that we found in the school. The teachers actually take the time, to learn about each individual student and target the education process towards that profile.
Alejandro Barbajosa - Mexico
Having had two of the kids at TIS was definitely one of our highlights during our four years in Tokyo. A lot of fond memories and lasting connections have been made for the kids and parents alike. The transition to another IB school went smoothly. Thank you all at TIS for such a special time!

The first day when my daughter came back home, she said, “I already have two new friends.” We were nervous but I remember the sense of relief when I walked back home and thought… OK, that's going to be a good place to be.
