Yokohama International School Japan
YIS has a student population of around 650 students from over 45 countries who are led by a diverse group of educators from 15 different countries. The academic program follows the three International Baccalaureate programs; Primary Years Program in the ELC and elementary school, Middle Years Program in grades 6-10 and the IB Diploma Program in grades 11 and 12. Being the most respected and widely followed academic program in the international school world, the IB is extremely well supported through resources and professional development and meets the needs of our internationally minded and globally mobile community. However, you will see that there is a distinct YIS feel to the program as our students get involved in the International Center for Japanese Culture here on campus, seamlessly integrate IT in their learning through our Connected Learning Community, take part in our growing community service program and, for those in the high school, have the opportunity to complete the Global Citizen Diploma, which was developed here at YIS.
