Nurturing true global citizens
together with the local community
in Nishinomiya

Since its opening in Nishinomiya 2002, Nishinomiya International School has strived to be a school where children can challenge various possibilities in an international environment. We hope that children living in the 21st century will grow up with the ability to act and express themselves confidently in a global community with dignity and rich individuality. Our goal is for children, by learning and playing in a multicultural environment from an early age, to deepen their understanding of different cultures, to recognize differences in others as they find there own way in the world, and to develop a true international mindset that will hold them in good stead for the future.

Message from the School

Nishinomiya International School was established 20 years ago with the mission of providing a full and comprehensive English immersion education to the Kurakuen community.
We started out with a small preschool program, where teachers and staff created a warm and welcoming atmosphere for students and parents.
Later, we have grown the program by adding programs for younger students, opening an afterschool program for students who attend outside kindergartens and elementary schools, and extending the hours of care to meet the needs of busy parents.
However, no matter how much the school's programs have grown, the at-home atmosphere that helps children build a foundation for lifelong learning and confidence has remained the same.
Throughout our many years at Nishinomiya International School, we have had the pleasure of meeting former students and parents in the neighborhood and getting to know them well.
We have watched them take their first steps, witnessed them read for the first time, and now we are witnessing our first graduates graduating from college.
As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, we wish to congratulate our past, present, and future students. May your future be bright and may you be happy for many years to come.
