About School

Greetings from the Principal

Principal: Atsuo Yoneyama

Urawa International School was founded with the fundamental aim of "Providing education for people who are able to go-between nations". We now have a proud history of more than 20 years.
The main aim of our school curriculum is to prepare students for examinations and help them to move into the next stage of education, while learning Japanese. Our experienced and enthusiastic instructors will give you the very best guidance for the JLPT and EJU.
In addition to regular lessons, we provide personal guidance for every single student, easing each student into the next stage of their lives after graduation. We also arrange extra activities and school excursions to learn more about Japanese culture, which we consider to be an important part of our curriculum.
At Urawa International School we have created an environment, where every student can grow and fully express their individuality.
While learning a new language, students can get to know a different culture, and with the knowledge and experience that they have gained at our school, go on to become successful and internationally-minded people. Most of all, we hope that more and more students will leave our school with a big smile on their face, recounting to all how much they enjoyed their time in at Urawa International School.
