Mary's or ASIJ, it has played an indispensable and exciting role within Japan's international school community.
The ASIJ is one of the oldest and probably the best known international school in Japan, having been established in the late 1890s by a small group of foreign women in Tokyo.
The ASIJ is accredited by the US accrediting body WASC, and graduates typically go on to universities worldwide.
International Secondary School (ISS) In contrast to ASIJ, ISS' stated vision is to be a school with a "small school philosophy." ISS was founded in 2001 and is a non-denominational institution serving students from grades 6 to 12--allowing it to dovetail in with international schools specializing in students in their elementary to junior high years.
St Mary's also has ac creditation from the ECIS (European Council of International Schools), while ASIJ's early childhood program is the only preschool program in Tokyo to have accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
According to the ASIJ, their students achieve above-average percentile scores on US-normed standardized tests and engage in classroom work above grade-level expectations.
