Makuhari International School is a unique dual-language school (English and Japanese) delivering programmes for K1-G6 (Nursery to Year 7). Situated just 30 minutes by train from the centre of Tokyo, the award-winning MIS campus enjoys outstanding facilities and excellent resources. The curriculum model, based on the Japanese National Curriculum, but modified where appropriate and taught via international teaching and learning methods, allows children to transfer to local junior high schools as well as other international schools. MIS opened its doors in 2009 and currently has 385 children on roll. MIS achieved fully accredited status with CIS in April 2017.
