The purpose of education is to eliminate bias.
Thank you for visiting our website. With 50 years of experience as one of the most prestigious preschools/kindergartens in the Moto Azabu area, we are delighted to introduce our school, which has been providing the best early childhood education since 1962. Our mission is to help children become successful life-long learners and thinkers by using a play-based approach along with the IB framework, which is an internationally recognized form of inquiry-based learning.
Summerhill International School is a place where children’s happiness is our top priority. Our children come from 15 different countries. Once they step into our school, they are encouraged to explore the enriched and inviting learning spaces to stimulate their burgeoning curiosity. The amiable classrooms, bright and cozy library, and outside play area are designed for our children to enjoy learning and to develop their interests. An abundance of opportunities is given throughout the year for children to experience the differences and similarities of other cultures, traditions, and celebrations, while having both international and local families and faculties involved. Summerhill’s enriched learning activities support the development of international-mindedness and future global citizenship.
As a school, we believe in the potential, possibilities, and capabilities of young children. We support their growth and development in all areas, physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially, while recognizing the uniqueness of each child in their learning journey.
