Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

EIFJ Tokyo, the French-Japanese International School of Tokyo (established in 2019, formely "L'Ecole du Juste Milieu"), is a 3200 Sq. Ft. campus, with rooftop playground. We are a primary (2019) & secondary school (2021), and a nursery licensed by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (enabling scholarships). We are also candidate for the French Ministry & IB accreditations.
Remaining open throughout school and national holidays, we offer nursery enrollment for 1-2 year olds (language decided by the parents), a bilingual French-English and French-Japanese primary education (& secondary, an extension project of 500 places in 2021) for 3-18 year olds, a 100% English program for 3-6 year olds, after-school activities for 2-18 year olds, & language courses for adults.
Everybody here at Tokyo's French-Japanese International School promotes an education of excellence in small-sized bilingual classes, and the well-being of children.

Teaching approach of the school

At the French-Japanese International School of Tokyo, we educate students to become creative and ethical citizens through an official, comprehensive & bilingual curriculum in small-sized classes. We teach all students to think objectively & behave responsibly, to shape their own views and respect others, to determine their aims in life and be successful.
-----------------------------
In addition to following the program of the French Ministry of Education (2015) and the Ministry's pedagogical recommendations (2018), based in particular on the contributions of neurosciences, we welcome children in nursery, bilingual preschool & kindergarten, bilingual elementary classes and 100% English classes limited in size, which allows to pay a better attention to students achievements and well-being. The teaching focuses on the five areas of learning that are language, physical activity, artistic activities, the building of the first tools to structure the thinking, and the exploration of the world and its diversity. It is complemented by many indoor and outdoor activities that will allow our pupils and others of all ages visiting after school to benefit from our teaching and develop all their skills.
