Kawasaki International School has the mission to impart the best foundation in early education. We aim for providing education for all and strive for:
•Structured and systematic approach for building strong individuals
•Education in core human values
The philosophy behind the above mission stems from the firm belief and experience that children need structured guidance to bring the best out of them. Since children in their early ages do not yet have discriminatory power to judge what is good for them, they should be given guidance to do things in a systematic manner. As they learn to do new things and solve new problems, they should be encouraged to gain confidence in themselves so that they grow as strong individuals who believe in themselves. The information and knowledge is equally important for gaining confidence but we also believe that education is not just feeding information. Education is the foundation for future. Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States had once said that:
“The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.”
Since education is also the core for nation building, we strongly believe that it should be based on core human values of Love, Truth, Peace, Right Conduct and Non-violence. These values are very important for harmony in international environment and the practice of these values from an early age provides a dynamic confidence in children which is vital for their overall growth.
We would like to raise confident individuals with strong interest in learning.
As work environment goes global, it is important to have good communication skills and strong command over English language coupled with experience of cross-cultural environment.
Since the early education is foundation for future growth, it is critical that children are exposed to an environment that prepares them for success in today’s world of globalization.
Kawasaki International School aims to provide the kindergarten and early primary education for children of 2years to 8 years of age, so that they could develop foundation for international society.
Japanese language is also taught so that children, if they prefer, can switch to Japanese elementary schools from Grade 4 onwards to prepare for Japanese junior high school.
Children can continue to be in touch with international environment through after school programs of K.I.S. after that. This provides children with invaluable strength to be adaptable to international community at an early age and also remain aligned to Japanese educational system.
We also focus on character building through education in core human values of truth, right conduct, peace, love and non-violence.
The objective is to develop contributors for a harmonious society with patience and mutual respect. We also believe in learning through fun so that children learn at their own pace given the love and care they deserve at this tender age.
We look forward to having you join our mission to global success!!
