KYOTO (Kyodo) Doshisha University plans to open an elementary school in 2011 offering classes in English chiefly targeting children of foreign researchers at Kansai Science City, university officials said Tuesday.
The school, tentatively called Doshisha International Elementary School, will be located in Kizugawa, Kyoto Prefecture, and have three classes for each grade with enrollment limited to 30 students in each class, the officials said.
One of the three classes will have an eight-year curriculum in English, while the remaining two will offer a six-year curriculum, like typical elementary schools, to accommodate Japanese students returning from abroad.
The primary language for the two shorter courses has yet to be decided, the officials said.
