Established in 1872, as innovators of international education in Japan, the school continues to meet the needs of children (co-educational, 2½ years to Grade 12) from the multi-cultural, multi-faith international community.
Dear parents, teachers, students and staff,
We hope everyone had a good rest after a very successful Christmas Bazaar! Thank you very much for all of your hard work, support and participation. We didn’t know what to expect with the new layout but because of our wonderful Saint Maur community, it exceeded our expectations. We will be sharing the results once everything has been properly accounted for so stay tuned! In the meantime, we thank you again and again!
Renata and Jeannie

Apprehensions were almost as unusually high as the 29-degree temperatures of the sparkling October day on the Saint Maur team, as the day of the annual Brain Bowl competition dawned.
It was quite an unusual Brain Bowl overall, in many other aspects: It was at CAJ, this year, not Yokota (as had been last year), and last year’s 300-point whirlwind captain (Yuki Kawamura) had graduated last June, leaving us with considerable uncertainty in this year’s competition.

During this hands-on unit that takes place over three months in Semester Two, students work collaboratively in groups of two to four to further refine their skills in problem solving and analysis as well as those essential to working in a lab. These are skills they will build on as they progress... Read More
