Nagoya International School (NIS) is a diverse community of life-long learners who embody the values and beliefs of our mission and who endeavor to shape the world we share, from Nakashidami to all corners of the globe, as we strive to inquire, inspire, impact and include.

The simple dream in 1964 of a place in Nagoya where children can learn within an English-language curriculum has grown into a vibrant, diverse and inclusive international community that inspires and empowers children to think creatively and critically, pursue lifelong learning, and contribute positively to the global community.

NIS seeks to make our mission the reality for every student, in every classroom, every day – by design. Our teachers are dedicated to nurturing the talents and dreams of students who come from diverse backgrounds and abilities. Our students are the beneficiaries of the generous support of a dedicated group of volunteer Trustees and Directors who ensure that our facilities, finances and programs work in concert with teachers and staff to provide the best possible foundation for learning and growth.

Our curriculum is framed by the programs of the IB and accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the Council of International Schools (CIS). NIS has chosen the IB programs because we feel it best supports students to nurture the skills needed to both expand their knowledge and encourage them to critically analyze, reflect upon, appreciate and contribute to the world around them. While the curriculum is taught through the medium of English, we feel strongly about the importance of studying the Japanese language and the customs and traditions of Japan as a window to our regional culture.

The families who make up our diverse community represent a wide-range of cultures and nationalities yet we are united in our desire to embrace the skills, behaviors and values that will enable our students to navigate and contribute to their world. NIS graduates join over 50 years of alumni who can be found pursuing their dreams and making a difference in the lives of others in diverse places and inspiring ways all over the world.

NIS is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion and welcomes candidates who share this passion.
