We answer some of the common questions we receive from parents and guardians.
Q. I am German, and my partner is French. Can our child study at AASO?
A. Yes, s/he can. We accept binational students regardless of their parents' countries of origin.
Q. The father is American, but our child only has Japanese citizenship. Will this be a problem?
A. Not at all. We define dual nationality by both heritage and citizenship.
Q. Is language proficiency in both English and Japanese an admission requirement?
A. No, it is not. When a student only speaks one language, however, we assess the likelihood of him/her acquiring the other language during the trial week.

A. Our monthly tuition is 33,000 yen. There are also other miscellaneous fees. Please contact us for more information.

A. No, it is not.
Q. Are students held back when they do not acquire their grade-level academic skills?
