Two curriculums. One school.

International Division -Australian Curriculum (NSW)
Japanese Division -Japanese Curriculum

Welcome to the Sydney Japanese International School

We are a non-denominational and co-educational school for children through to Year 6 in the International Division and up to Year 9 in the Japanese Division situated in the leafy suburb of Terry Hills on the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney. Founded in 1969, Sydney Japanese International School continues to make an important contribution to bilingual education in Australia.

We welcome families from ALL nationalities and backgrounds to participate in our unique education rich in Japanese and Australian culture and virtues.

SJIS offers two divisions, each with a separate curriculum: the International Division, teaching the NSW curriculum from Kindergarten to Year 6 with daily Japanese language lessons, and the Japanese Division, teaching the curriculum as currently taught in Japan for Year 1 to Year 9 with daily English lessons. Two curriculums on one campus work towards the same vision of becoming a ‘Kakehashi’, a strong bridge, connecting communities and cultures nurturing our thriving future global leaders. The two divisions learn side-by-side sharing many school events such as Sports Day, Language Festivals, School Concert as well as mixed bilingual lessons in music, art, PE and coding.

At SJIS, highly experienced, passionate and dedicated teachers nurture academic excellence, encourage active participation in school events and foster a culture of acceptance. We challenge our students to be the very best version of themselves through personalised approach to learning. From this ethos, our students emerge as empathetic, skilled and responsible citizens of the world, with fluency in two languages and the capacity to take advantage of the many opportunities this provides.

We look forward to welcoming your child to our unique school.
