Navigating Education: Choosing an International Primary School in Japan

Japanese primary education system called Elementary School or Shōgakkō thrives to develop compassionate, cooperative and global-minded students, who are willing to take risks, learn, inspire and lead the world. A typical Japanese primary school is between Grades 1 to Grades 6 and each classroom has about 30 to 40 students, studying different subjects like Japanese, Arithmetics, Science, Social Studies, Music, Crafts, Physical Education, English, and Home Economics (to learn simple cooking and sewing skills). Almost all primary schools in Japan give students a choice to take part in an extracurricular club activity, such as a sports club, musical group, science group or arts group.
