Aoba-Japan International School (A-JIS)

We aim to develop global leaders capable of leading positive changes in the world. With support from our partners, we encourage an entrepreneurial spirit, innovation, and social responsibility.

Ken Sell Head of School

By applying a Blended Learning approach to the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum, A-JIS adds value to the traditions of a liberal education. A-JIS is all about intellectual rigor and building student self-efficacy.

  • A-JIS is an IB World School offering the Primary Years Programme, the Middle Years Programme, and the Diploma Programme. We also offer the Global Leadership Diploma, which enables senior students to identify and pursue their interests while safeguarding their opportunities to enter universities worldwide.

  • Our research shows that parents choose A-JIS because we provide an international education, focus on the whole child, and allow the child to pursue their own passions in a friendly, caring environment. They also value the entrepreneurial spirit we encourage and our academic approach.
