International Baccalaureate at Tsukuba IS
International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that we believe is important for our students.
We are proud to be an IB World School offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP) since 2011, the Middle Years Programme (MYP) since 2014, and the Diploma Programme (DP) since 2017. We were the sixth full continuum IB World School in Japan and we are the only one in Ibaraki Prefecture.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a globally recognized curriculum framework that emphasizes critical thinking, intercultural understanding, and global responsibility. Its programs are designed to provide a broad, holistic education, focusing on the development of the whole student, not just their academic abilities.
Our students are encouraged to explore the world around themselves, think independently, and question their understandings. This allows them to become well-rounded, open-minded, and knowledgeable individuals who can thrive in whatever future path they choose.
At Tsukuba International School, we pride ourselves on having a dedicated and highly-qualified team of faculty and staff from a diverse range of countries including Australia, Canada, India, Japan, Philippines, United Kingdom, and United States. Our teachers are experienced educators who are comfortable working in an international environment. The school has a very good rate of retention, with many staff members choosing to stay with us for many years, and this is why we have been able to cultivate a strong and unique school culture.
