Parents have but one chance at educating their children and we know you want to make all the right choices. Selecting Tokyo West International is the right choice because we provide a stimulating and challenging academic experience in a warm and nurturing multi-cultural environment that makes learning fun. My primary role as principal is to utilize my four decades of educational leadership experience in an international environment to guide Tokyo West through the challenges of full accreditation by the end of SY2012-13. Recognition from AdvancED, the oldest, largest, and most respected American accrediting agencies, will add to your confidence in our capacity to give your children that cutting-edge educational advantage you seek. Thank you for entrusting your precious children to the faculty and staff of Tokyo West International.

Our mission

1, Non-Japanese students who are living in Japan can learn all subjects through English. They will also learn the Japanese language at the same level as Japanese students during G1-G12. Through their experiences which are not only Japanese language but also Japanese culture, they will learn to understand and respect other cultures.
2, Japanese students who graduate from International preschools and kindergartens will be eligible to enroll in the Elementary, middle and High School. Not only will the students learn to speak, read and write at the native level of English but also the ability to understand and respect cultures other than their native culture. This will give them the tools to be able to become great leaders of the world in future.
We believe that our elementary school graduates should go to the international schools for G7-G9. However, if students choose to go to Japanese public or private Junior High Schools, since we will focus on a high level of Japanese language education, this transition should take place smoothly. Our Japanese language curriculum will have provided a G7 program when students graduate from the elementary school. Our curriculum offering is hard but fun. We are sure we can provide a high level educational program at a reasonable price.

Mission Statement

We strive to be positive leaders in our lives and in the world.
