Seisen International School has been an International Baccalaureate school since 1986.
We were the third school in Japan to offer the IB Diploma Programme. The programme has continued to grow over the last 35 years. Critical thinking, community service, and an exposure to a wide variety of intellectual viewpoints reflect what both Seisen and the IB value.
In 2007 the Elementary School became authorised to offer the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP). The PYP is a curriculum framework for international education. The programme focuses on the holistic development of the child addressing the physical, social, emotional, cultural and academic well-being of each student and reflects our strong belief that education must address the development of the whole child. Seisen is one of just two schools in the Asia Pacific region blending the elements of Montessori and the PYP.
In July of 2020 Seisen became authorized to offer the IB Middle Years Programme.
As of July 2020 Seisen International School is authorized to offer the PYP, MYP and DP, making us the first All-Girls IB Continuum school in Japan.
Thank you for a wonderful 2020-2021 school year!
