I take great pleasure in welcoming you to the pages of the Nagoya International School website. I invite you to explore our site and am sure you will gain a sense of a learning community committed to excellence.  

NIS students represent diverse cultural and national backgrounds, and share a commitment and passion to learning. Our strong academic program enables them to gain entrance into competitive universities worldwide or successfully transition to other elementary or secondary schools along their educational paths.

Our teachers are dedicated professionals, a majority holding masters degrees in their areas of specialization. Their teaching is inspiring, student-centered and individualized, and their involvement in coaching and co-curricular activities provides a nurturing environment for students to excel in the arts, athletics, student government and service learning.

Facilities at NIS are first-rate and provide a supporting backdrop for an enriching environment. The entire campus has been modernized for all divisions, enabling students numerous opportunities for growth in the classroom, on the athletic field and in the gym, as well as on the performing stage.

Just as important, NIS is fortunate to have parents who are actively involved in the life of their children and the school community. A dedicated PTA organizes annual social events, fundraisers, and volunteer days to support the school. 

I look forward to possibly meeting you in the future, and trust this website provides the information you need to consider joining our community, whether as a prospective student, a parent, or as a faculty member.
