Tsukuba International School (つくば・インターナショナル・スクール, TIS) is an IB World School in Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan. We offer a rich educational program for students from pre-kindergarten (age 3) to Grade 10 (age 16). We are authorized to offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Middle Years Programme (MYP) of the International Baccalaureate (IB). IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit the International Baccalaureate website.

TIS was founded in September 1992 to provide an international education in English to students in the Tsukuba area. (Read more about our school history.) We offer preschool (ages 3 and 4), kindergarten (age 5), elementary school (Grades 1-5), and middle school (Grades 6-10). We are in the process of establishing a high school (Grades 11-12, anticipated in 2017-18). TIS is a non-profit, religiously-neutral organization.
