Admissions Process

We are pleased that you are interested in joining Makuhari International School!

There are two different pathways for entry into MIS. One is for students wishing to enter at the beginning of the academic year in April, and one that is for students who wish to transfer into our school during the school year. Both have different timelines and slightly different processes. Before you begin the application process, be sure to check the admissions criteria to see if your child is eligible to join MIS 【Qualification Requirements】.

For April, please follow the schedule described here: 【Enrollment for April

For times other than April, please go to the ‘Forms’ page under ‘Apply’ to download and complete an application form. Please return this to the school, together with an application fee form (Form A), any records, references or recommendation letters, and/or test results from the current or previous schools attended. The application should also include a copy of the child’s passport picture page, Parents Information Form, and a copy of the family’s certificate of residence. For full details, please request an 【Admissions Booklet】from the school.

If we feel a child meets the criteria for joining Makuhari International School, a subsequent screening test will be organized with the class teacher. For Kindergarten 1 or 2 children we will arrange an informal meeting with the kindergarten staff rather than a test. Where a child is accepted for testing/interviewing, a fee of ¥20,000 is paid to the school.

In certain situations, after a test, a follow-up interview might be arranged with the Learning Support of English Support Coordinator.

In all cases, a child will be placed in the relevant Grade (dependent on their chronological age). An offer of a place (or not) will be made in writing. Any decision made by the Head of School is final. If there are no spaces at the time of application, a child may be invited to join a waiting list at the school.

Registration and other fees are payable immediately on entry to the school (Please do not pay before you get invoice). For more information about fees, please go to our Fees page under Apply.

A child may leave the school for up to three months or one term and a place will be held open for them, as long as tuition fees are paid for the period of absence. During the absence, the child is expected to attend an appropriate school, with documentation of such attendance required upon return to Makuhari International School.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Ms Takeshita, our Admissions Officer, at or by calling her at 043-296-0277.
