Nagoya International Junior and Senior High School is committed to the achievement of academic excellence and is characterized and enriched by its dual-language program in Japanese and English. The school seeks to promote humanistic values in an interactive, bilingual environment and to inspire in its students a life-long love of learning. It also encourages students to develop a ‘frontier spirit’, a spirit characterized by independent, critical and creative thinking and by intellectual courage and thoroughness. Finally, the school prepares its students to be compassionate ‘citizens of the world’ who are respectful of differences and are committed both to making a positive contribution to the world and to leading a fulfilled life.

Nagoya Intemational Junior and Senior High School is working towards the implementation of a full International Baccalaureate curriculum, and aims to provide state-of-the-art school facilities, to develop a gifted and multi-national faculty and to become one of the top international schools in Japan.

Full–time teachers from Australia, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and China work with their Japanese colleagues in an environment that is essentially bilingual (English and Japanese).

Nagoya International Senior High School was founded in 1953. A non-profit organization – the Kurimoto Educational Institute, an organization that also governs Koryo Junior College, the Nagoya University of Commerce and Business Administration and its affiliated Nagoya University of Commerce and Administration Graduate School – serves as the school’s Board of Trustees. In 2003, the Institute formally opened a new Junior High School and dedicated a new facility that now houses both the Junior and Senior High Schools.

He is a very dedicated student and we were thinking about visiting the Nagoya University high school and getting the necessary information for to decide his future .
    If I can get more detail information about the courses and entrance examinations would be very thankful.
