5-minute Walk to Baji Koen
Learning in a Richly Green Environment
The area is rich in green, with large parks such as Baji Koen, used during the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, a tree-lined avenue, and Tokyo University of Agriculture nearby. Students will go out to the park every day, as long as the weather permits (even on rainy days). They can feel the change of the four seasons by observing plants and living creatures, and also learn the joys and rules of moving their bodies through a variety of sports and games.
Free and Open Space for Activities
An open single-floor space, where all kinds of inquiry-based activities can be flexibly accommodated, expands children's imagination and creativity. The small stage and wide hallway encourage interaction among children of all ages. In addition, the symbolic wooden furniture is placed in the center of the campus to evoke the rich natural surroundings. The floors in the classrooms and the multipurpose space are cushioned and hygienic, ensuring safe daily inquiry-based activities and special programs.
IB × STEAM Education
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art/Design, and Mathematics. In this continuously changing world, we incorporate learning opportunities through STEAM into our daily zone playing and PYP curriculum, in order to foster the ability of "Monozukuri" and problem-solving skills that create new changes itself.
We also use three-dimensional toys to train thinking skills. Especially in early childhood, using three-dimensional objects has the effect of deepening students’ understanding of shapes and spatial awareness, as well as numbers and logical thinking.
After School Program
and School Bus
We offer a wide variety of After School Programs (ASP) including gymnastics, karate, ballet, street dance, programming. From this fall, we are planning to open Koguma-kai (basic exam class for elementary school entry). Even those families who do not have time to take their children to extracurricular lessons, can rest assured that their children have these experiences that expand their interests, during regular school days.
The school bus service is available in the morning and evening, widely covering east to west of Setagaya-ku.

We aim to create an environment where children can practice thinking, worrying, and coming up with answers on their own.
It is only through making many mistakes and taking on challenges that one can grow. In this process, cultivating a spirit of compassion and acceptance not only for oneself but also for others is the driving force that will open up the future. We will encourage children to learn and enjoy various things through play, and our staff will do their utmost to make it enjoyable.
We aim to be a place where everyone involved with the campus can always learn, and our staff will work together with parents and guardians to support their children's growth.
