On behalf of the Osaka International School of Kwansei Gakuin, I would like to welcome you to our website. We are proud to be members of a caring community that puts the interests of our students at the heart of all we do each day. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School offering all three programs (PYP, MYP, DP), we are proud of our students’ accomplishments. They consistently perform well above world average on many academic measures, including the highly rigorous, IB Diploma exams.
What sets us apart from other international schools is our “Two Schools Together” model of education. We share a campus and program with the Senri International School (SIS), an innovative private school based on Japanese educational standards. The goal is for us to learn from each other through close interaction, taking the best of Japanese and western educational practices. The two schools share classes in physical education, visual arts, and music. Because of this, the fine arts are central to students’ learning and are one of the best programs for a K-12 school in the world.
OIS also has the support of the private, nonprofit, Kwansei Gakuin Educational Foundation (KG). KG is one of the oldest and most prestigious private universities in Japan, with over 20,000 students in both undergraduate and graduate programs. This gives the faculty and students of OIS, access to both the expertise and resources of a major university to enhance our academic program.
The 2015-2016 academic year marks our school’s 25th year and we all continue to do our best to be productive, thoughtful, and happy global citizens. We believe all of us, teachers, students, parents, and staff, contribute to the teaching and learning at OIS. To our school community, ganbatte! To visitors,you are always welcome to come and visit or contact us to learn more.
