School Overview: This school first opened its doors in 1924 to support the needs of international students coming into the area. This was not long after the Great Kanto earthquake, the roll quickly increased. In 2000 it was the first school to offer the Reggio Emilia programme and by 2003 it was the first authorised IB school in Japan. This school current now houses over 650 students representing over 45 nationalities and a staff of almost 100 people representing over 15 nationalities.

Regional Overview: Yokohama is the second largest city in Japan and originated at a port city.
