What Parents Say
St. Michael’s International School is a very happy and supportive community as well as a close and loving family. All of the teachers helped our child to grow and thrive throughout her primary education at St. Michael’s. We are forever grateful for the wonderful staff and community; our child’s time here will always be remembered and cherished.
We love this opportunity to share our thoughts about St. Michael International School (SMIS) with you. Our son attended the school from Reception to his graduation at the end of Year 6. Immediately after moving to Japan in 2014, he got admitted into the school. Everything was so new to him and as parents we were worried about this transition. However, the warm and loving environment of SMIS turned this transition phase into a comfortable and pleasant experience for all of us. We are fond of this small, still diverse, and lively school community that celebrates diversity. We appreciate the endeavor and kind support of the teachers and staff members shown to us all the way through our son’s schooling. SMIS teaches students some great values of life so that they grow up as more responsible and empathetic individuals. Best wishes for SMIS!
We consider St. Michael’s a great choice for our son. He joined from Year 1 and continued on to graduate in Year 6. St. Michael’s warm, nurturing and stimulating environment created a positive impact on him from an early stage – he loved school and brought home happy stories of his learning journey. In addition, the school reinforced social and character development through various classroom activities – transforming students into caring, compassionate and well-rounded individuals.

St. Michael’s was a great choice for our family. Our older son started in Year 1, and our younger son started in the Nursery program, at age 3, and both boys continued on to graduate at the end of Year 6. At St. Michael’s they got a solid foundation that continues to support their learning today in junior high and high school. The teachers and staff at St. Michael’s provided a warm and loving environment—it’s the sort of school where all the grownups know all the kids’ names. If your family is looking for a positive international learning experience for your child, I wholeheartedly recommend that you visit St. Michael’s.

We can not recommend St.Michael’s International School highly enough. Both our children cherish the six years spent at the school, which has perfectly prepared them for a fast changing world, through the quality of the curriculum, opportunity to constantly interact with different cultures and understanding of behaving along shared values.
For many years I’ve felt like a part of the St. Michael’s family, I felt very touched by the school. Both my daughters have grown up to be the person they are today, from the incredible life teachings provided by the school. St. Michael’s is a very collaborative school and has a healthy background. As a parent, I loved the way St. Michael welcomes everyone in and provides the best learning and environment for all children.
Both my son and daughter attended St. Michael’s between 2002 to 2018, so we have been with the school for a very long time! Both of them loved going to school everyday and loved the school. They were nurtured in becoming independent thinkers. As parents, we felt we were also part of a big family and learned a lot from being in contact with different cultures.
A great, educational, encouraging, confidence-making and enjoyable school. I can see both of my children growing up positively in your school. I always look forward to hearing the children’s stories about their day at school.
My children made many good friendships and learned a lot from the people around them. The teachers endeavour to bring out the best in all students. The fact that my daughter wants to become a primary school teacher plainly tells you the excellence of this school.
St. Michael’s is the best school for your child to develop a base knowledge of ethos, laws, respect, discipline and a general feel for the society around us. It’s a school where difference is accepted and encouraged, all ideas are welcome. Students are taught to become good people in this school, always retain good standards at school and outside of it.
Our two boys were at St. Michael’s from nursery all the way through to graduating from year 6. We are a bicultural, bilingual British/Japanese family. The school is certainly warm and welcoming – parents as well as children made plenty of friends there! Being a small school helps to build relations between staff, children and their families, and this is something that we really appreciated.
