Admission

Welcome to Tokyo West International School

 

Here at TWIS, our motto is “Grow Local, Soar Global”.

At TWIS, we want to ensure that our students’ growth and passions are nurtured through locally relevant, hands-on education which crosses cultural, global and analog boundaries. Our goal is for every student to develop the confidence and curiosity to soar to greater heights and possibilities as global citizens.

 

 

Acceptance from Overseas

 

While living in Japan, it can be an opportune experience for students to learn not only Japanese language, but also Japanese culture and customs implemented within our international-oriented educational system.

 

We also provide flexible support for students returning to Japan from overseas so that they can enroll on the desired date.
