Horizon Japan International School Sendai was established in April 2012 for children of ages 3 to 5. Our curriculum is based on the UK Early Years Foundation Stage and we follow the standards and practices of the IB Primary Years Programme as a PYP authorized school. We would like to provide a well-balanced education as well as develop English language skills in an all-English learning environment for our most Japanese student community.
We value candidates who exhibit a passion for teaching, who have experience with students from diverse backgrounds, whose pursuit of professional development is keen and ongoing, and whose academic background and teaching experience are directly relevant to the position.
This is an excellent opportunity for the right teacher to join an excellent team to teach and work in Sendai, the largest urban center in Northern Japan. Working at Horizon Japan International Sendai provides an appealing, cleaner, and greener, authentically Japanese, alternative to a place like Tokyo. Please submit your application following our guidelines, to allow us to consider whether we share a match in needs and interests.
Horizon Japan International School Sendai (Early Learning Center) is opened in April 2012 with accreditation from Miyagi Prefecture Government as an international school mainly for Japanese children from age 3 through 5. In April 2016, Horizon Sendai Primary School was opened within the same campus for children from Grade 1 through Grade 6 as the first English Immersion Primary School with Article-One status in the Tohoku area. In February 2022, we were authorized by the IBO to offer PYP.
In our Primary School, we have developed a unique program after investigating other organizational models in Japan. This program will develop the base needed for the leaders of the future. We believe that our children will be such leaders, representing Japan on the global stage, making our world a better place.
In the Early Learning Center, all instruction is in English, while in Primary School this ratio is about 50%. We are hiring enthusiastic and experienced teachers from around the Globe to offer an international atmosphere for our school community here in Sendai.
Teaching in Japan continues to be one of the most popular options for English teachers as well as licensed classroom teachers. One of the world's most technologically advanced countries, Japan also maintains a culture of old-world tradition and appreciation for beauty.
