School Trips

Field trips and guest speakers are an integral part of the academic program, as they extend the learning in a real-life context and connect the students to experts in the field. The Japanese and Japanese Social Studies Curriculum is particularly enhanced by visits to local artistic/cultural sites and to the historical cities of Japan. Grades 4-8 have an annual trip to the school property, Kazuno in Gunma Prefecture. All students in Grades 4-9, participate in an annual ES/MS Ski Trip in February and Grade 9 participate in a Mt Fuji Climb at the beginning of the year, a service learning trip to Cambodia in December as well as a Graduation trip to Hiroshima, Kyoto and Nara in June.
