It is with very humble gratitude that KIS would like to thank Muromachi Lions Club for their ongoing support of the school.
Over many years the Muromachi Lions Club has been supporting the school with various activities and always had a presence at the KIS Festival. As recently as this May the Muromachi Lions Club invited KIS to the annual dinner, to be part of the celebrations of all the work the club has undertaken. Two board members attended and reported back on a what a lovely evening was had by all.
In spite of the challenges that the global pandemic has presented, in 2022 the Muromachi Lions Club is donating ¥100,000 to the school. For this magnanimous gesture the entire KIS community thanks the club for their generosity.
The school hopes the next year will again be a time of fruitful cooperation between Muromachi Lions and Kyoto International School.

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.
An affiliate of JETRO is Kyoto Overseas Business Center, which is an all-Kyoto support center located downtown in KYOTO KEIZAI CENTER building. Their focus is for small and medium-sized businesses that are considering overseas business.
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.
