Founding Philosophy

Nishimachi believes that education should promote the well-rounded development of individuals through the cultivation of their intellectual, creative, personal, social, and physical abilities. The school is committed to educating both Japanese and expatriate students to be international and independent thinkers. Nishimachi's educational philosophy is grounded in a spirit of internationalism and humanism that allows children to learn in a supportive caring environment.

We believe that learning a second language is not limited to language skills, but also develops international perspective and understanding, giving our students the opportunity to grow beyond a single culture. We believe that classroom and co-curricular activities should foster sensitivity to, and respect for, individual talents as well as differences. We believe that every student must learn to function both as an individual and as part of a group. Our ultimate goal is that every Nishimachi student learn to live harmoniously in, and contribute to, world society.
