New International School of Japan now accredited by CIS

NewIS of Japan is very happy and honoured to be able to announce that as of May 22, 2014, the Council of International Schools (CIS) has accredited the school from preschool age three to Grade 12. This is in addition to the school’s accreditation by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA).

The graduates of the senior school will, therefore, be able to take the entrance examinations for Japanese universities directly, without having to take high school equivalency examinations. The school has also begun an exchange program for the upper and senior school students with the Compass School in Vermont, USA, so that students can experience study abroad during their high school days.

NewIS senior school is the first dual language high school program among the international schools in Japan, following the example of its primary school, where the children learn all subjects in both English and Japanese. The Scottish curriculum is also a highlight, as it is developmental rather than statutory in design.
