Welcome to Hiroshima International School, where for fifty years expatriate and Japanese children have been experiencing a high quality English-language education. Whilst initially founded as a primary school, the school now takes students from age three through to eighteen. The educational program, founded on the principles of the International Baccalaureate, is internationalist in outlook, challenging to all and relevant to the young people who will become the leaders and citizens of the remainder of the twenty-first century.
Hiroshima International School has an excellent academic record: in the six years that it has been entering students for the IB Diploma it has maintained a 100% pass rate. The graduating classes have gone on to study at universities both globally and here in Japan. As they do so, they take so much more with them than just a set of good grades and the ability to succeed at university; they take a set of attitudes and aptitudes that equip them not only to be successful in the rapidly changing modern world but also to value, and use, the infinite variety of perspectives that this world and its peoples have to offer them.
As the school moves into its second half century, the focus on equipping students to build their personal skills in tandem with their academic ones will continue to be developed. Perhaps the simplest way of expressing what this means is in terms of developing in students what Pat Bassett refers to as the 6Cs – creativity, character, critical thinking, communication, collaboration and cosmopolitanism (cross-cultural competency).
Hiroshima International School has always been a ‘family’ school, a place with a strong sense of community: it’s a place where staff, students, parents, etc. don’t just know each other’s names, they know each other.
Whether you are already a community member, new to our ‘family’ or simply considering joining us, I look forward to getting to know you. If you want to find out more about the school but cannot find what you want on the website then please just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
