Students grow when they are engaged in activities they are passionate about and learn important life skills through these activities to align with TIS values. Our co-curricular program aims to nurture the growth of students outside the classroom by building skills such as friendship, responsibility, collaboration, and perseverance. We facilitate a wide range of recreational activities and competitive sports based on student interest, recognizing the value in experiential learning for students.
TIS activities develop fundamental skills across sports, music, and arts through creative and cultural activities with an emphasis on fun. We offer a range of activities based on student interest every term. Non-competitive co-curricular clubs include STEAM Club, Multisports, Video Making, Manga Drawing, Guitar, Speech, Rock Climbing, Choir, Introduction to Programming, and Kids-4-Kids, a community service-based club for younger students. Space permitting, students are encouraged to join multiple recreational activities a week.
TIS is a member of the Kanto Plain Association for Secondary Schools (KPASS) Sports League and MYP students get a chance to compete with other international schools in the greater Tokyo area. At various times of the year, TIS offers the following KPASS sports: Cross Country, Soccer, Volleyball, Basketball, and Track & Field. TIS students deepen their skills and challenge their abilities in their chosen areas. Excellence is emphasized—not winning, but the commitment to trying your best for the good of the team or group. Developing friendships and sportsmanship, TIS students learn responsibility and perseverance towards a common goal.
In addition to sports, students engage in Fine Arts clubs and activities such as the Drama Festival, Model UN Club, Math Field Day, Brain Bowl, Choral Festival, and Artscape. Collaborating with members of KPASS to organize special events throughout the year, TIS students get the opportunity to interact with other international school students in the greater Tokyo Area.
Tokyo International School is a non profit school, which is accredited by the Council of International Schools and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
We are a fully authorized, International Baccalaureate World School, catering for students from Kindergarten 1 (four years old) to Grade 8 (fourteen years old).
