Elementary  ( S International School ) 


inspire your first grader!


At SIS we are fully dedicated to providing the best education. After graduating from SIS K Class or completing our entrance examination, successful students are ready for the next exciting challenge at SIS. This is the SIS G1 Class. G1 textbooks and materials are a combination of Calvert (an American Educational Institute) and original materials and texts created by SIS. The program is created to provide a truly 
International Education. The G1 program develops students into freethinking bi-lingual children who are strong problem solvers and have a full grasp of a wide array of subjects. In addition to our focus on subjects such as Math, Reading, Writing, Science, Geography, History and Phonics we are also providing students with many wonderful additional classes such as Music, Dance, Ballet, Physical Education, Swimming, Computer, Art, Listening Comprehension, Manners and Japanese.
Grade one is provided with a fully trained and educated homeroom teacher.
The homeroom teacher is responsible for the direction of the class.
In addition to the homeroom teacher many other teachers are highly involved and dedicated to the highest growth and education of each individual student as well as the entire G1 class. Students of G1 will have Native English Speaking Educators.
Also, Japanese and Bi-lingual staff from Japan as well as many other countries from around the world. Students will have Dance and Music Instructors. Students will also have several other teachers that are trained and have developed focus in specific subjects. At SIS we provide the path to success with the collaborative group effort of all our management, teachers and educators.
As a team we strive for a brighter future.
