*The School recognises the benefits of including students from the permanent, local community, however Article 1 of the School Education Law of Japan stipulates that it is the duty of Japanese parents to send their children to Article 1 schools during the compulsory period which covers the years from grade 1 to grade 9.
As Seisen International School does not hold the status of an Article 1 school, Japanese parents must give full consideration to the legal implications before applying for a place at the school.
Please be aware a Japanese nationality student continuing her education in our Grades 1-9 program will not meet the expectation of Compulsory Education in a Japanese school. We ask that you take this into consideration when planning your daughter’s education.
**In the interest of continuity of student learning, mid-year transfers between our member schools of the Japan Council of International Schools are not accepted without prior consultation between the Heads of both schools.
Students attempting to transfer from schools that are not members of JCIS should contact our Admissions Office.
