The school has been declining in quality due to many issues. The amount of good teachers and students have been leaving after 2019 because of the news articles that have been published because of the multiple scandals (please research it on your own). Hence why no banks are giving out loans to this school so they may extend their grade levels up to high school, banks do not trust the school because of all scandals that pop up out of no where. Many teachers are frustrated that administration are not properly doing their job and some are ill equipped to have the positions they have received according to my 3rd grade teacher. Teachers who left last year have mentioned that the administration team have been hiring novice teachers to cut corners and have been avoiding hiring experienced teachers with families so they don't have to waive tuitions for their kids or accommodate high salary. Going to the school's employment page you can see that there are many positions that have opened up because teachers are leaving. This has become a routine every year for the past 4 years. It is up to you of you want to take a gamble sending your kids here, luckily my family got some good teachers thus far and that we will be going back to our home country by the time the school year ends.

A well-respected international school in Tokyo's core. Hosts professional development events for teachers.

Vories architecture. It was a mansion of descendants of Masayoshi Matsukata. Surrounded by embassies and wealthy mansions and condominiums, the atmosphere is far from Japan.

It was a pretty bad experience to me. Even though the school is already full, the school still tells you that they are enrolling students and the school collects the application fee. Of course, you will be notified of rejection by email without giving any specific reason.
