What is CHIST?
Parents and guardians of children with Japanese nationality have a responsibility to send their children (Elementary school for 6 years, Middle school for 3 years) to receive Japanese compulsory education under the School Education Act.
Our school as a free school will provide students an opportunity to attend our school, who are unable to attend state school for a variety of reasons.
The purpose of CHIST, as a free school, is to develop young people capable of playing a role on the international stage by providing elementary and junior high school education in English for children and students with foreign nationality, and for who are not familiar with the conventional Japanese school environment conducted based on the Japanese custom of group education, based on the spirit of Buddhism.
