Our chairman of the board is a firm believer that education is one of our most important basic needs to be able to lead a successful and fulfilling life. Moreso, learning from early years makes a big impact in shaping a child to their fullers potentials. This is why young learners are very close to her heart. She envisions children as the future leaders of the world who are capable of making positive changes for the next generations to come. As a person who has first-hand experience in the value of international-mindedness through her work exposure and collaborations with international groups and institutions, she regards that learning English is an essential tool to become confident communicators. Understanding diversity and respecting other cultures are also critical in today's fast-changing world. It is her goal to enrich Aiwin students with BASIC skills (Balanced, Adaptable, Self-confident, Imaginative and Communicative) as a tool to become independent, responsible and globally-minded citizens. In pursuit to provide a solid foundation of education a parent can give to a child, Aiwin International School was built to offer a a unique blend of learning programs, an excellent learning facilities, and a professional team of educators. To manage school affairs and strive to improve in education and child care, our School Principal and Administrative Support Team continue to uphold our philosophy and values as a prestigious international school.

Welcome to Aiwin International School where we provide a structured and purposeful international learning environment that allows our children to develop Aiwin's BASIC skills, compassion and confidence into becoming globally responsible citizens. I am truly proud to offer our school programs and curriculum that is continuously being developed to uphold child-centered, holistic and integrated approach in learning. It is a great honor for me to be a part of and lead our professional and talented team of teachers and staff who dedicate themselves in helping our young learners achieve their fullest growth and potential in every aspect of their school life.
My professional experience gave me an opportunity to teach and train in various educational institutions where I saw how teaching methodologies and school policies could work well together to fulfill student’s learning needs. It also gave me a deeper understanding of how important it is to consider parents and caregivers as active participants in their child’s education and care. Strengthening the connection between home and school ensures a child’s success not only in school but also later on in facing bigger challenges in life. I believe that creating a balance among education, care and governance gives our children the best and most memorable educational experience.
We continuously strive to become a premier international school that offers excellent learning facilities and well-balanced curriculum while maintaining a warm and supportive family atmosphere that has always characaterized our school. I would like to see our school become even more remarkable, with professional teachers and supportive parents on board, in inspiring our students to develop a love for learning, excellence and service to society.
Thank you for choosing Aiwin International School. Our doors are always open to welcome you.

Hi there! My name is Jessica. I am from Chicago, Illinois, USA. I have lived in Japan for over two years and am enjoying it thoroughly.
I have had the pleasure of watching many children develop and learn new communication skills.
My goal is to show children that communication is fun, and that when we try our best great things come from it. Children have such a wonderful ability to try their hardest at every task, while not being afraid of mistakes.
Every child is different in the ways that they learn and absorb information. Finding the best way to help with each child’s individual needs is what is so rewarding about working with children from a young age.
I hope to help the children of Aiwin to become confident in their own abilities and to grow into the globally successful people that I know they can be.CLOSE

Nice to meet you. My name is Naho Yoshikawa.
I studied early childhood education at university and worked as a nursery teacher and kindergarten teacher. Among them, I was interested in English, overseas childcare and education, and went to Australia for a year to study abroad. Therefore, I was keen to learn about the culture of foreign countries and the wonderfulness of overseas exchange, and to convey it to the children even when I returned to Japan.
By learning English and international culture at Aiwin, I hope that children will have a broad perspective on what the future will look like and will expand their potential and grow.
I hope that I will be able to become a bridge between Japan and other cultures by knowing both the good points of diversity.
To that end, I would like to convey the wonders of both English, foreign culture, and Japanese culture.
I am looking forward to seeing you in Aiwin!CLOSE
