Phone / Fax:03-5468-6456 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Preschool for 2 1/2 to 7-year-olds of all nationalities who communicate and are guided in English as the school’s primary language. Run by Mr. Gerd Oberlin for 2.5 to 6 year olds. In an aesthetic, Swedish style environment the children are challenged by a broad spectrum of genuine, natural wooden Montessori materials that help them develop fundamental motor and technical skills, acquire self-discipline and enhance their creativity. They gain basic understanding and abilities in the areas of aesthetic perception, communication, reading, writing, calculating, rhythm and drawing. Linked up by a semester long theme, creative activities in drama, art and music complement the individual work and daily conversational circle. If the child’s first language is not English he will learn it by immersion. This approach follows current programs as practised in Japan and everywhere else in the world. It owes its success to the fact that children do not think it strange if people in school speak differently from people at home. Apart from becoming bilingual they construct and appreciate their own cultural identity.

‘Currently, 134 children, are studying at the school currently K-8) where every lesson is given in English. “Our school’s selling point is not English but that we have adopted the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) currciulum, a tough and modern curriculum that is indisnesable in acaquiring the scholastic abilit y required to pass the competitive entrance examinations in my country,” (Niyanta) Deshpande (Director of GISS) said. //He said that as this was the major curriculum in India, children who studied under this curriculum overseas could easily adapt to local schools when they returned to India. “Not only Indian children, children from other countries can get the benefit from this curriculum to pass the examinations of international univerrsities,” he said. //”As it is quite difficult to enter a prestigious university in India, Indian parents want their children to have high academic ability and competitiveness,” Deshpande said. “In our school, students will learn three languages-English, Hindi or French, and Japanese. Lessons are conducted in Englsh, but we need to learn Hindi to live in India.”//Compared with other international schools, the tuition is quite reasonably priced-￥600,000-800,000 a year. The curriculum is the same inevery school-they have adopted the Montessori kindergarten approach for very young children while using the CBSE curriculum and International Baccalaureate system, which is recognized at many universities around the world, for older students”‘-excerpts from Daily Yomiuri article Sep 21.

The school is located in traditionally-styled imperial grounds with parks that will allow the children to be surrounded not only by a truly Japanese atmosphere but also by abundant, healthy, greenery so scarce in an urban setting. The school is also has use of the spacious halls of the local Shogenji Temple for their movement classes, sensory integration therapy, and other activities. The school emphasizes its classroom setups and tools since these are especially important in a Waldorf schools with the hallmark Steiner belief is that children need a constant connection with natural materials and thrive best in a gentle atmosphere with subdue tones and lighting. Waldorf teachers use specially designed multi-purpose objects that encourage divergent thinking. Storybooks are selected for their inherent moral and cultural lessons. A lyre and simple flutes are standard musical equipment along with the more traditional supplies needed for arts, handiwork and movement. Waldorf education is about teaching all subjects creatively and artistically. The many new and often challenging ideas put before students are presented in an imaginative, rhythmic, and always cheerful way. This will emotionally engage the student and facilitate learning. Art and music are interwoven throughout the curriculum in a Waldorf school in order to develop the imagination, creativity and joy in learning. After reading, the children might draw pictures of the story with bright beeswax crayons, metamorphosing newly learned letters into colorful beings. They might try experimenting with self-made music inspired by the tales, which may then become the class play that semester. The school curriculum can be viewed at URL: http://www.waldorf-steiner.org/curriculum.html

Teacher:student ratio : one teacher, one sports trainer and one music teacher: ten children. The Evening & Saturday Elementary Programme is designed to maintain and improve the English level as well as to foster Western cultural awareness of Japanese returnees, children who want to continue learning English in Japan and half-Japanese children who attend Japanese schools. The program makes use of similar methods as many international schools when we teach students how to express their thoughts and conduct research; deliver an effective presentation; and discuss their ideas at age-appropriate levels at a high English calibre. The amount of course time devoted to doing research, creating and practiciing presentations increases as children gorw older and improve their language skills. Upon completing the Evening Junior High Program, students will have received the instruction and training to the point where they can conduct research presentations and give speeches with the presuasive power needed to convince anyone from any country, and theyll be at the same level as, if not hgher than students who attend international schools.
