We are extremely happy to introduce you to our unique program for the development of your child.
Whether you are requesting to attend for a few months, or planning on a few years, I am sure
that you will find us a satisfactory educational partner. Possibilities for our children
abound, and we look forward to helping you with your child”Ēs school requirements.
Our International School program environment enables students to develop life skills while striving
towards academic excellence and upholding Christian values. A small student-teacher ratio encourages
students to feel relaxed and to not be shy to ask questions that would enable them to learn. Students,
under the guidance of caring instructors, engage in guided, independent learning.
Each student is recognized as an individual with specific requirements; thus programs are tailored
to meet each of those needs. They are not in a lock-step method and are thus each individually able
to progress. If children advance rapidly they may continue to the next grade earlier. Children who,
due to illness cannot come to school don”Ēt loose out as they continue right from where they last left off.
To help Japanese students acquire the necessary skill for our International School, we have
a Prep School to prepare them. We believe, based on past experience, that we can take a
Japanese child with no English ability, and teach them so that they are able to enter into
an International school. All children who master their English skills are naturally given
preference to the Axis Kichijoji International School for a grade 1 placement. Children
who are not able to enter into our International School program due to the more limited
number of students, will find that they are able to enter other good schools of their choice.
Through play, music, stories and much more, the children in the Prep School
are prepared and encouraged to use and develop their English Language skills
with native teachers and Japanese Language assistant teachers. Our program has
been made so that no one is left out.
Native English speaking children who join the Prep School will find that
they will not be left out. They will acquire a solid foundation in the
skills that they will need when they begin their formal education.
The program is divided into a Morning program and an Afternoon program.
Depending on time, and skill, you may enroll your child for both programs.
If 2 days or 3 days a week is more convenient, then please discuss this
with us at the time of enrollment and we will try to offer you the best solution available.
English Play Time is for a time where your child can have the opportunity
to play with an English Teacher and other children. Here we allow the children
to serve tea and talk about heir day, or perhaps take a train ride through
their imagination. Our hamburger stand would be a good place for hungry
customers to order their burgers and fries. Through the use of their
acquired language, the children will gain a confidence that the targeted
language class cannot offer. Children from a variety of ages are permitted
to join this class. Registration with the front desk is required before a
child can join in this class.
English Classes compliment our program. In the afternoons and evenings
we also offer private and group English classes. Please discuss your
requirements with us. We would be happy to assist you to achieve the
level of English that you desire.
Children that have studied with us have successfully applied and been
accepted at the American School in Japan and Christian Academy in Japan.
Internationally we have placed students in America, Canada, and New Zealand.
Thank you for your interest in Axis Kichijoji International and we hope that we will have the privilege of helping your child.
