Our values were developed in 2020 by a group of TIS students. Students led the process; surveying stakeholders and synthesizing our community’s perspectives. The TIS values are the result of student: empowerment, collaboration and decision-making.
Tokyo International School is an IB Continuum World School. We are fully authorized to deliver the prestigious IB Primary Years Program and Middle Years Program. TIS is not just any IB school. Our commitment to the IB and our expertise in IB philosophy and teaching practice is deeply-rooted at all levels of our organization.

As a non-profit organization, learning and well-being alone drive our decisions. Our teaching methods are research-based, effective and innovative. Our programs develop mathematical literacy, information literacy, digital literacy and the necessary dispositions of successful, lifelong learners.

This includes access to an exciting after school activities program.
