School Life

  • Curriculum

We are to educate our student linguistically, culturally, socially, and academically balanced as Japanese and American. To realise such ideal, we have developed original hybrid curriculum integrating Japanese curriculum (MEXT) and American curriculum (DoDEA). With this flagship curriculum we believe that our students will be able to proudly and confidently strive and prosper in both societies. The curriculum is designed in the following way:

MEXT:

Japanese, Math( Japanese/ English), Science (Japanese/ English), Japanese Social Studies (Japanese)


DoDEA:

English Language Arts (English), American Social Studies (English)


Having regards to math and science, the classes are aligned with MEXT curriculum. First of all, for students be able to study interchanging important concepts in both languages, secondly, no much cultural difference between both countries in math and science, and third, over 90% of student seek high school education at Japanese high school, we teach students following a single curriculum for the two subjects.

Whereas social studies of Japan and America, each bears unique historical-, geographical-, cultural-coverages and political system. Hence, students are taught in respective curricula and languages.

Beside core subjects such as music, arts, home economics, and P.E., we are integrating good sides of both curricula and most of them are carried out with English.
