International Baccalaureate in Tokyo at Seisen International School Parent Sessions

Our International Baccalaureate Coordinators have many parent information sessions planned for this school year.

The 2019-2020 school year marks 35 years that Seisen International School has been working with the International Baccalaureate programs. SIS was first authorized to offer the IB Diploma Programme for Grades 11 and 12 students in 1986. Since 2009 SIS has been authorized to offer the IB Primary Years Programme for students in Grades 1 to 6. Last school year was our first year as an IB Middle Years Programme candidate school and we are working towards authorization in 2020. 

An important part of the IB program is helping parents understand the role they play in helping their children be successful. At Seisen International School we make this possible in a few ways:

  1. Sharing IB Documentation: Current Seisen parents can find information about all three programs in the secure Parent Portal
  2. Blogs: Check out the PYP class blogs to learn more about how the PYP works in the classrooms.
  3. Parent Information Sessions: These face to face sessions are a fantastic opportunity to learn more about certain aspects of the program and ask questions to the PYP, MYP and DP Coordinators. Below is a full list of the IB Parent Sessions planned for this school year.

If you have any question about any of our IB programs please do not hesitate to contact our three coordinators.
