School Admission Criteria

Any child who can understand Japanese (the minimum criteria being the ability to converse in Japanese with the teacher), and desires academic ability equivalent for each grade is eligible. The age range of the students at the School is 5 to 18. Students are placed in the year appropriate to their age, based on Japanese standards, but may be placed in a lower year. Students enrolling at the School must have turned 5 on or before April 1 of the year of enrolment. A child seeking admission may be put on a waiting list if the relevant class is full. The School will contact the parents/guardians of the children on the waiting list as vacancies become available. Priority will be given to siblings of existing students who have been attending the School for a minimum of one year. (This priority is eligible for applicants who are in Year 1 or above only).

School Fee

The school fee is $130.00 per student per term.
