Spring Entry Program For TIS

Author:Author unknown, Issue: February 1999, Topic: Education

Tsukuba International School is now in its 7th year of operation. It began as an elementary school program only, but it has always had the intention of expanding its operations to include a kindergarten class as soon as possible. Unfortunately, without either the space or the budget to launch such a project, that still remains only a vision for the future.

With that being the case, international families with kindergarten-aged children have had no other option but to put their children in Japanese kindergartens. For many, this has worked out fairly well, and their children have had a good experience. For those desiring to put their children in TIS from the first grade, however, the differing school years has always presented a problem. The children graduate from Japanese kindergarten in March, but like all international schools in Japan, TIS's school year begins in September.

For the past couple of three years, TIS has endeavored to provide a temporary solution to this problem by accepting such students for a spring entry program, which serves as a bridge to the regular first grade entrance in the fall. If you have a child that will be 6 by September 1st and would like to consider entering him or her in the spring entry program, please contact the school at 47-0330 or email: melissa@sicembears.com
