JETRO

As explained on their website, JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization) is a government-related organization that works to promote mutual trade and investment between Japan and the world. The organization was established in 1958 to promote Japanese exports abroad. Their focus has shifted toward promoting foreign direct investment into Japan and Japanese firms maximize their global export potential.

IB MYP Candidate

Kyoto International School is a candidate school* for the MYP. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
