Our teaching policies

4つのCと1つのI これからの時代に求められる身につけるべきチカラ これからの時代に求められる身につけるべきチカラ
01 creativity

Create new ideas with courage




From grade 1 to grade 6, students study systematically. An academic framework that surpasses “conventional” science. At our overnight event, we have two grades of students work together so that we can cultivate an interest in science. For the lower grades, we encourage the students to take an interest in the nature around them and to observe the changes in nature throughout the seasons. This knowledge can be used for future experiments, horticulture, and to foster creativity. For the upper grades, building on the skills acquired in lower grades, the students will inquire into environmental issues and develop the ability to think scientifically and express the issues in scientific terms.


Arts, Crafts and Music are taught under the Art Curriculum. While each are taught by highly specialized teachers, the entry level program focuses on learning while having fun. After learning, students will be able to grasp the intention and characteristics of various artforms. Students will enjoy expressing themselves in their own way. Through "Crafts" students create individual work and through "Music" they will improve their musical skills to aim for the school musical production and performance.
02 critical thinking

The students will learn to objectively analyse using a critical perspective,
and to think for themselves.

Critical Thinking



Fifth and sixth graders will naturally increase their knowledge of social studies, but they will also nurture a habit of developing their own opinions and making good judgements when it comes to course content and current affairs. Students will also have opportunities to debate and exchange their opinions constructively. On such occasions, they will make use of ICT to collect data and communicate their ideas effectively.


Starting from 2021, we will provide a tablet to each student. The tablets will not only be used for ICT lessons, but for other subjects as well. Students will use it for input (searching for information and images) processing (summarizing the information gathered as groups) and output (presenting their work in class.)
03 communication

Students will learn to express their own opinions clearly, while

respecting the opinions of others.


Hands-on Learning

We value experience-based learning. Students are motivated to learn through hands-on experiences.
We invite guest teachers to enrich experiences for students. We aim to foster a “rich sense of humanity" through connecting with others.
04 collaboration

"Collaborators": Positively accepting other people's opinions,

values and cultures


Basic Advance

For Grade 1
We have a step up period for first graders that allows them to easily transition from school life in kindergarten and pre-school to studying in elementary school. First, they learn how to stand and sit, and how to respond and make presentations. When everyone can speak cheerfully, they will understand their friends better. They enjoy things like practicing their numbers and reciting short poems and sentences in a loud voice. During the transitional period from preschool to primary education, focusing on this kind of voluntary demonstration of their work will motivate them and naturally equip them with speaking, listening, seeing, writing.


From grade 2 to 4
From grade 2 to 4, students mainly study life science and social studies through experience-based learning. We'll guide them to explore the day-to-day things around us and investigate and solve the problems. Where relevant, we will expand these into ESD (Education of Sustainable Development). Therefore, the students will not only study by themselves, but will also learn through collaborating with others and communicating their ideas. We aim to enable the students to continue these approaches in day to day life.
& Imagination

To imagine what we can't see.



Tamai Method玉井式ロゴ

Enabling students
to find the solution
by using their imagination.
Many students who are not good at math struggle with word problems and geometric shape problems. It is said those students have one thing in common, and that is the lack of "mental imagery ability."
To solve word and figure problems, students need the ability to "build an image" in their head. In order to solve this problem, our school introduced the "Tamai Method." In our lessons, students watch animations, and then proceed to solve the math problems using specialized textbooks. These teaching materials were developed so that children can naturally strengthen their ability to "read the material and imagine the scenario" This way, the students can develop their ability by repeatedly building images in their heads, which leads to accurate comprehension.

KIWAMI AAA+図形の極®図形の極ロゴ

Indispensable for geometric
shape problems: Foster your mental
imagery ability.
With KIWAMI AAA+図形の極®, students can solve shape problems using a computer or tablet. Because this is an individual learning method, students are able to solve the problems at their own pace.
With teaching materials that specialize in geometrical shape problems, students can acquire spatial awareness skills while having fun.

Literacy Based
Maths Lessons®国語的算数教室 ロゴ

Foster the skills to imagine and think through math problems and complex sentences.
In our "Literacy Based Math" lessons, we use a digital whiteboard and solve the written problems through engaging activities. From the stage of “solving the problem alongside the video” to the stage of "comprehending by reading", students will naturally foster the skill of comprehension and imagination.
