Australia’s Leading Japanese Bilingual School

We are the only school of its kind in Australia offering a Japanese bilingual education in a bicultural learning environment. We offer families an opportunity for their children to evolve as global citizens of the world in a caring and trusted environment.

Based in the leafy suburb of Terrey Hills, in Sydney’s beautiful Northern Beaches, we offer the choice between two curriculums:

The Japanese curriculum in Years 1-9 (with a comprehensive English language program), OR the Australian curriculum from Kindergarten to Year 6 (with a comprehensive Japanese language program).

Our students graduate as astute analytical and creative thinkers with higher-than-average second language ability. We are consistently reminded of the fact that growing up with more than one language is an asset worth the investment.
