Aoba-Japan International School is a co-educational international school with no specific religious affiliation. We have a proud history of over 45 years since opening in 1976. Currently, more than 700 international students from more than 30 countries and regions study together at three school campuses in Tokyo: Aobadai, Meguro Ward (for kinder children aged 1.5 to 6 years / K2-K5), Hikarigaoka, Nerima Ward (for kinder to middle year students / K3-G9) and Honkomagome, Bunkyo Ward (for high school students / G10-G12). We also have a 100% online campus for G11-G12.

In addition to English and Japanese language and culture education, which have always been Aoba’s strengths, in 2016, Aoba acquired full accreditation for the International Baccalaureate (IB) PYP (kindergarten/elementary school equivalent), MYP (middle school equivalent), and DP (high school equivalent), making it an IB World School. In addition to the IBDP, our high school also offers the Global Leadership Diploma (GLD) program, which allows students to tailor their curriculum of study to their interests. In terms of IBDP and GLD, we offer 100% online campus courses. Aoba is delivering Japan and Asia’s first-ever online IBDP pilot to high school students.

Aoba’s mission is to nurture global citizens who bring innovation to society, lead others, and think entrepreneurially through its world-class international curriculum. Grounded in the educational philosophy of fostering the ability to choose one’s own life, no matter what the times or where one goes, Aoba aims to cultivate an attitude of constant and ambitious challenge, as well as theoretical decision-making, application, and problem-solving skills.

Aoba has been constantly striving to improve its academic rigor since 2016, when it graduated the first class from the high school program. In just a short amount of time, the school has grown to the point where our students are being accepted to the world’s top universities every year.
