Michael Taylor
Principal of Kyoto International School

Kyoto International School is a creative and innovative school with 60 years of history. Our solid foundation of values and our mission to make the school a fun and collaborative community that inspires and challenges, enabling students to thrive and take responsibility anywhere in the world makes us a great choice for anyone looking for an international education.

Kyoto International School is in the heart of one of the world’s best known cities. Our students are readily able to access the city’s cultural richness, historical traditions, and modern innovations.

What we are proud of at Kyoto International School is our community. Our students, teachers and parents work together to ensure our school is safe and secure, provides quality education and encourages lifelong learning. The small, intimate size of our classes enables us to know our students and families well. We encourage inclusion, open communication and mutual respect.

Our curriculum is significant, meaningful, engaging and challenging. The International Baccalaureate Organisation’s Primary Years Programme provides the framework to develop the thinking, communication, social, self-management and research skills our students need for success in the 21st century. We endeavour to nurture the whole child: cognitively, physically, emotionally and socially. Our students are encouraged to take action as a result of their learning, either on a personal level or with a wider community.

We look forward to welcoming you to our community.
