KYOTO INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY
This school was established in 1947 as a junior high school for Korean children in Japan. In 1963, the school expanded high school and played an important role as a place of ethnic education for Japanese-Korean people in Kyoto. In 2004, our school has been approved by Japanese government as a regular school and changed its name to Kyoto Kokusai Junior High and Senior High School. What we think the most important thing that our students should have are; self-respect, discipline, and symbiosis. The basic goal of our education is to nurture talented people with abundant internationalities who have respect for human rights and a symbiotic society.
Historically, Korea and Japan have had a deep relationship. There was once an unfortunate period, but as a neighboring country, we must strengthen friendship toward the future. True friendship cannot exist without mutual understanding. Becoming a regular school, more and more Japanese students have entered. Every student can explorer other cultures through everyday life in school. I believe that Junior high and Senior high school students' experiences will be the cornerstone of their success in society as an international person in the future. The Board of Directors will try to ensure that students learn in a pleasant environment. Thank you for your understanding and support.
