      Former Parents

      We were a part of the NIS family for almost three years. NIS is more than an educational institution - we saw it as a small community where expat families bonded and emerged into the Japanese traditions. The atmosphere was always warm and welcoming to students and their families. Our son spent some wonderful years in NIS, made great friends, and the teachers provided for an unlimited growth potential. We always felt welcomed to address concerns or feedback on his classroom progress. We believe his time at NIS helped to better prepare him for more challenging work ahead, and since our return home to the U.S, he was placed in advanced or honors classes.

      Our three-year experience at NIS was extremely positive. It opened a whole new world for our son, who attended grades 4 through 6. He gained a new, more global perspective and developed friendships that we hope will last a lifetime. The excellent education he received continues to help him excel since re-entering public school in the US. In particular, the inquiry or project-based curriculum has helped him with time management and cooperative learning.
