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 Gakugeidaigaku model school campuses in Tokyo.

We are currently looking to hire a new teacher to join our Afterschool team in Ohori.
TISAS is an after-school program that provides an immersion environment (children must attend at least 2 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 hours are called See, Hear, and Wonder Time and is a guided playtime 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. Course Time is different each day, with courses including Our World, Art, Makers, Living Planet, and Kids Force. Classes are separated by age group, and the maximum number of students per class is 18.
