Hiroshima International School offers a full Middle and High School programme for students aged 11-18 in Grades 6-12.
The middle school curriculum in Grades 6-10 builds upon the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) and introduces the academic rigour needed for the examination courses in the high school grades. HIS is currently a candidate school for the IB Middle Years Programme. The MYP is an inquiry-based program for students in grades 6-10. The knowledge, skills and attitudes acquired in the MYP provide a foundation for students to be successful in the IB Diploma Programme in grades 11-12.
In keeping with the school’s mission, the curriculum does not align with any particular national system, rather it provides a comprehensive international curriculum which reflects our multinational student body, and thus aims to meet all of our students’ needs.
