Head of School's Welcome
Hello and welcome to Nishimachi. Tané Matsukata founded the school in 1949, and her legacy continues today within our strong academic, activity-based learning program.
It is with great pleasure that the Board of Directors announces the appointment of Karen O'Neill as the next Head of School, effective August 1, 2019.
"It was amazing to see the children study with so few resources and with such a wonderful attitude to learning. Being able to share happiness without speaking their language was special to me."
