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.

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.

CAMPUS
LEADERS

Many parents/guardians wish for their children to be able to speak English, to have a global perspective, and to become internationally-minded individuals. However, unfortunately, there are many children who are receiving English education from an early age who do not know much about Japan, their home country and/or the country in which they now live. I myself was one of them. I still remember the embarrassment I felt when I played my first international rugby match as a member of the Japanese national rugby team and was asked by a player from the opposing country to "tell us what you like about Japan”.

At our school, we do not neglect learning about the beauty of Japanese culture and customs, and we not only provide an international education, but also learn about our own roots, based on the six transdisciplinary themes of the International Baccalaureate. The school also fosters the ability to think with an inquiry-based approach, and provides an environment for effective language learning through immersion education that showers students with English. We spend time every day with children thinking deeply about their interests in play, acting on them, sharing their achievements, and experiencing a sense of accomplishment. At A-JB Harumi Campus, play is very important for children, and by having children play hard, they deepen their understanding of Japanese culture and their surroundings. With the foundation, children develop a spirit of inquiry and action, language skills, and cross-cultural understanding that will be useful throughout their lives. We hope to foster the foundation for the development of a truly "global human being" who is healthy in mind and body.
