India International School in Japan (IISJ) was created to fill a strong need. It has been a solid rock for the Indian Diaspora that has sought to put roots down in Japan. Much like the Diaspora it serves, IISJ’s next step is to also put down its own roots: our goal is the construction of our very own school building, a permanent home. Under the guidance of founder Nirmal Jain, the school started with an initial enrollment of 27 in 2004 in a small office building. As the years went by, the enrollment increased as did the size of the office buildings. IISJ Tokyo moved into its current premises – a full fledged school building with playground, gym, library, and science and computer labs – in 2007.
Enrollment was about 800 students. Seeing the success of the Tokyo school, Yokohama city officials requested IISJ to open a second campus in Yokohama. Six years since its launch, IISJ Yokohama boasts 200 students from kindergarten to Grade 12 with enrollment growing every year.
The best school I've ever been to. I was a student here for 5-6 years and had a blast everyday. There is not a single aspect of the school I disliked. From the teachers to the gymnasium, everything was awesome. I would definitely recommend this school to others
Honestly as a student i hate this school, most of the teachers hate doing their work, they just do it for the money. Even though they have cleaners they don't supply them with good cleaning facilities to work, there have been rat spottings there. There are only some good teachers
