Columbia International School’s elementary program incorporates a positive whole child approach that recognizes the need for each child to be healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
The small class size and the collaborative nature of discovery learning methodologies allows for the physical, social, emotional and academic development of each individual student. The student centered approach means purposeful and challenging experiences are designed around ideas, concepts and themes that are meaningful to students. Caring and highly qualified teachers use the latest strategies to support each student’s language development in our literacy rich classrooms. In this way your child develops fluency in both English and Japanese.
Columbia also provides students many opportunities to get involved in school life through clubs, social and cultural events, community events and extracurricular activities. I urge you to take full advantage of the many wonderful opportunities, experiences and advice that will be available to you at Columbia.
Parents, we also welcome your active involvement in your child’s education and the many activities of the greater school community. Teachers and parents working together as a team is a very important factor in a child being successful. Together we can create a wonderful and successful learning experience for all our students.
