SJIS nurtures students' development through our unique, world-class bilingual and bicultural program. We pride ourselves on our school's diverse community and international perspective. Working together in a caring and stimulating learning environment, we maintain high expectations for academic excellence and extra-curricular participation, whilst offering strong support. SJIS students are encouraged to learn and grow in an enriched environment, emerging as confident global citizens of the world.
We are the only school in Australia offering the choice of two curriculums: The Japanese curriculum, as currently taught in Japan, from Years 1-9, and the Australian curriculum from Kindergarten to Year 6. Both curriculums offer intensive daily second language learning. Our students therefore emerge with a strong proficiency in two languages and the multitude of benefits that entails.
