NewIS extends to high school from August

New International School (NewIS) is happy to announce that the school will extend to grade 10 from August 2012, and expects to have a full high school program by August 2015.

The NewIS high school will be the first dual-language international high school in Japan, meaning that the students will study all academic subjects in both languages, not just language arts.

Director Steven Parr said, “We believe such a school is very much needed in a community with an ever-increasing number of international marriage families and long-term resident families whose children may well want to live here as adults, never mind the cognitive and academic benefits of a bilingual education, irrespective of where the students may subsequently live.”
