AICJ Junior and Senior High School is a privately-funded IB World School accommodating approximately 715 students. In junior high school we provide a tailor-made curriculum with a number of the subjects taught in an English immersion environment. Math, music, science, physical education and English are taught by both foreign and Japanese teachers in junior high school. In high school, we operate a dual pathway system whereby students select either the domestic course to prepare for entry into Japanese universities or the internationally recognized IB Diploma Programme.
