Marist Brothers International School is an independent, co-educational Early Learning to Grade 12 school located in Kobe, Japan. The school is WASC accredited and IB DP authorized. The school is also a member of the Japan Council of International Schools and East Asia Regional Council of Schools. Marist Brothers International School has been serving the Kobe and Kansai communities since 1951. We offer students and families an international program following the highest standards of the California State Curriculum and International Baccalaureate, while maintaining a personal atmosphere with small class sizes. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All appointments are subject to an enhanced background check and satisfactory references.


The School rents a number of apartments, and in connection therewith, shall be
responsible for supplying basic furniture as listed in the Faculty Handbook, for
ensuring that basic maintenance is carried out and for assisting with any disputes
between the teacher and the apartment owner. Teachers are expected to familiarize
themselves with Japanese social etiquette regarding such matters as acceptable noise
levels, proper disposal of garbage, and so on. The School will retain one key to all
apartments leased in its name. The monthly rent will be deducted from the teacher’s
monthly salary and paid by the school.

(ii) Teachers who wish to live in housing other than that offered by the School may do so, but
the School will not normally assist in such cases, nor will the School pay or lend key
money for such requests. An exception to this policy will be made in a case where the
apartment provided by the School is subsequently found to be unfit for habitation and a
substitute apartment acceptable to the School is found.

In the case of teachers living in School-leased apartments, the School will retain
¥100,000 per household from the final salary payments of departing teachers. The
¥100,000 will be used to cover the utility bills which may come in during the summer
after a departing teacher has left Kobe. After such bills have been paid, the amount
remaining from the withheld money will be sent to the teacher(s) within three months,
along with copies of the relevant bills and receipts.


New teachers whose normal residence is outside of Japan shall be reimbursed by the
School for a one-way ticket (tourist/economy class fare) to Kansai International Airport
from their home of record. The reimbursement will be made at the end of September of
the year of the teacher’s arrival. The reimbursement will be based on a travel agent’s
invoice or a copy of the air ticket provided to the School office by the teacher.

(ii) Full-time teachers not returning to the School after only one year of employment and
whose home of record is outside Japan will be reimbursed for a one-way ticket
(tourist/economy class fare) from Kansai International Airport/Itami Airport to their home of
record. The reimbursement will be made within the one-month interval prior to their
departure date. The teacher’s Departure must be by July 31st of the final year of employment
in order to be eligible for said reimbursement. The reimbursement will be based on the
travel agent’s invoice or a copy of the air ticket provided to the School office by the teacher.

(iii) All full-time teachers not fitting the description of teacher subject to Clause (ii) above, both
Japanese and non-Japanese, will receive a taxable payment of ¥160,000 as part of their
March salary, which may be used for travel expenses.

Moving Allowance

The School will pay ¥40,000 to a single teacher and an additional ¥40,000 for his or her
spouse and each dependent for the purpose of establishing residence in Japan for moving
expenses to Japan from the teacher’s home of record. Upon termination of the teacher’s
contract, the same amount will be provided to each member of the teacher’s family to assist with moving expenses to
the teacher’s previous home of record.


For the unlimited-term teachers and limited-term teachers whose contracts are renewed,
pursuant to Article 9 of the ROE, for limited-term employees, the School will pay up to
¥60,000 per year for a teacher’s professional development. After each academic year, any
unused funds will be supplemented at the rate of ¥60,000 per year up to a limit of
¥120,000 (Total). Such funds shall be applicable to tuition, activities, travel, materials for
self-study, and lodging approved by the School administration and will be paid upon
presentation of receipts by the teacher to the School. All such requests are to be discussed
with the teacher’s immediate supervisor and approved by the Head of School prior to

Since signing up with Schrole we have been very impressed by the customer service, the modern-looking online platform, the absence of placement fees, and the various other Schrole products that we may be able to benefit from in the future. We have filled a number of positions this year with candidates from Schrole, during a particularly difficult recruitment year for us. The customer service is terrific. It seems that Schrole is leading the way in moving teacher recruitment into the 2020's.
