International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP)
Hidden in an Office District
The Best Natural Environment
Despite being in the Harumi area filled with high-rise buildings, Harumi Campus is surrounded by a large park and many other natural environments. Students can feel the changes of the seasons all around, which helps their emotional growth.
Learning Through Play
Everyday, the campus is filled with students’ smiles and laughter. Activities that just look like playing, are actually full of tricks. Students will be experiencing age-appropriate playing and activities. By expanding and deepening their learning through play, students can cultivate high academic skills. Life is nothing without fun. Exciting days await our students.
Discover the World Through IB Curriculum
We are an International Baccalaureate (IB) accredited school. PYP (Primary Years Programme) begins in the K3 class, where students explore 4 Units through UOI (Units of Inquiry) a school year. Through daily inquiry-based learning activities, no matter their nationality or race, each student will expand his or her potential, and explore what the world is and who we are from various perspectives. We support the growth of students to have a global perspective in an age-appropriate manner.
After School Program
and School Bus
While popular after-school lessons in the Harumi area are said to have a 2-3 year waiting list, Harumi campus offers a wide variety of programs every day, such as piano, classical ballet, HipHop dance, programming, and gymnastics. Among these, classical ballet, HipHop dance, and programming classes will be in English. Since all programs are held on campus, they are highly appreciated by parents, as they don’t need to pick-up/drop-off afar.
The school bus service is available in the morning and evening, one covering the Harumi area and the other in the Toyosu area, for students over 2 years old.

It is my pleasure to see the students come to school each day with big smiles on their faces, looking forward to what they will learn and explore that day. Life is not all about learning to read and write. It is equally important to nurture love and friendship and to have dreams.
At Harumi Campus, we also focus on recognizing that we are part of the community. This awareness is an important lifelong skill that will help students open up their future. We aim to create an environment where each student at our school has a challenging spirit, learns, understands that they are a member of the community, and can give their best everyday. Our staff is committed to working together with parents and guardians to support your child's growth.
