Students break into applause as the young presenter standing at the front of the class finishes describing their artwork to the group. You ask the class, "Does anyone have any questions or comments?" Eager hands immediately shoot up. Asking a student in the front row, they comment, "I like the color you chose." Heads nod in agreement. You make a quick note on your iPad about the 21st Century Skills that the students are displaying and move on to the next student waiting to present.

Established in 1985, Tokyo International School Group (TISG) runs Tokyo International School Afterschool (TISAS), Tokyo International School Kindergarten (TISKG) and Tokyo International School Learning Through English (TISLTE) at our Nakameguro, Minami Azabu, Komazawa, Toritsudai, and Gakugeidaigakku model school campuses in Tokyo. We also have franchise campuses based in Tokyo, Sapporo, Hyogo, and Fukuoka.

We are currently looking to hire a Teacher who will join our team at our Komazawa model school campus from the 1st of September, 2021. The Komazawa campus runs a Tuesday to Saturday schedule which is a combination of our Afterschool program (from Tuesday to Friday) and our LTE program (on Saturday).

TISAS is an after-school program that provides an immersion environment (children must attend at least 3 days per week) for non-native English-speaking children. Students attend classes from 2 pm until 7 pm (the students arrive anytime between 2 pm and 4 pm). The first 2-hour block is called See, Hear and Wonder Time and is a guided play and homework time. Between 4 pm and 7 pm, we have 5 focused study blocks: Circle Time, Kinesthetic, Story Telling, Language Strategies, and Course Time. The Course Time is different each day: Tuesday is Art, Wednesday is Makers, Thursday is Our World, and Friday is Kids Force. Classes are separated by age group, and the maximum number of students per class is 16.

The TISLTE Saturday program provides classes once per week of 180 minutes in length. Students are placed in classes based on their age with the program open to kindergarten and elementary-aged students.
