Project Details



The NIS 2020 Vision Project is designed to fulfill the long-term need for Nagoya to have a full-service, top-quality international school serving a student body of 450-550 students to the same standards that can be expected from international schools in any major city worldwide.

When complete, the new East Building will provide three full-size science labs, two music rooms with practice facilities, two rooms for visual arts, a multipurpose PE and performance space, a multipurpose event and refreshment space, a roof-top area for additional PE activities and additional spaces for individual study and group collaboration.

Additionally, the replacement of the aging NIS athletics field will ensure for the continuance of a high-quality field sports program and the rezoning of the remainder of the campus  – possible once the new building is complete – will support better and safer learning for all students.

The 2020 Vision project builds on recent construction projects of the past (construction of the Grade 5 Annex in 2017 and the NIS Design and Fabrication Lab in 2018) to deliver the vision for a campus capable of sustaining a world-class International School here in Nagoya, Japan.

The NIS campus in 2020 will:

  • Have adequate spaces for all specialist areas including sports, science, engineering/design, technology and the arts
  • Be zoned by discipline/subject group in Secondary (Gr. 6-12) with separate zoning for Primary (Preschool-Gr. 5)
  • Have sufficient break-out, common and utility spaces to safely and comfortably accommodate a school of 450-550 students;
  • Enable delivery of a curriculum which has the breadth, depth and resources expected of a quality international school

  • 中・高等部(6〜12年生)の教室を初等部(プリスクール〜5年生)とは分け、科目ごとのゾーンに配置
