        NIS Community

        Whether a recent graduate, a long-ago alumni or a former NIS parent, the special bond that keeps the NIS community together is strong. Hear what they have to say . . . 

        Alumni, Class of 2017

        I am sincerely happy to have transferred here. NIS opened many opportunities and allowed me to meet many people that have shaped me into a different, but better person.

        Alumni, Class of 1983

        NIS is a wonderful, diverse group of students that allows you to really get a chance to view other cultures and lifestyles.

        Read More about Jodi
        Former Parents

        We were a part of the NIS family for almost three years. NIS is more than an educational institution - we saw it as a small community where expat families bonded and emerged into the Japanese traditions. The atmosphere was always warm and welcoming to students and their families. Our son spent some wonderful years in NIS, made great friends, and the teachers provided for an unlimited growth potential. We always felt welcomed to address concerns or feedback on his classroom progress. We believe his time at NIS helped to better prepare him for more challenging work ahead, and since our return home to the U.S, he was placed in advanced or honors classes.

        Alumni, Class of 2015

        I love how age doesn’t matter when it comes to friendship at NIS!

        Former Parents

        Our three-year experience at NIS was extremely positive. It opened a whole new world for our son, who attended grades 4 through 6. He gained a new, more global perspective and developed friendships that we hope will last a lifetime. The excellent education he received continues to help him excel since re-entering public school in the US. In particular, the inquiry or project-based curriculum has helped him with time management and cooperative learning.

        Read More about The Branum Family
        Alumni, Class of 1982

        NIS is constantly growing but it hasn't lost the "small town" feel. Walking the hallways today and having the students greet me, even though they don't know who I am really reinforces this for me.

        Read More about Andy
        Former Parents

        Nagoya was our first experience outside Brazil. When we arrived at NIS our children had never studied at an international school and they did not speak English. We were very well received by all members of the school community and our children felt confident and welcome from day one. In just a little time our children started to speak English and got well integrated to the school. We really enjoyed being part of the school and treasure the good memories from this time. We will always remember NIS with love!

        Read More about The Goya Family
        Former Parent

        The teachers at NIS helped our family make, what would have been a difficult transition, a much easier one. As a parent of children with learning challenges, I have always had to educate and advocate for them. But here at NIS, I have always felt that I am being heard and that I am not alone.
