Enrollment & Uniform Requirements      

1.  Language Assessment Requirement: 

Kindergarten do not need any English ability.   

A certain percentage of 1st graders with no English may be accepted because all 1st graders are learning how to read.  

Students from 2nd grade must be able to read, write, and speak English.  

All students must have a 20 to 30 minute interview and test which will be scheduled as soon as the admissions process begins.  Students answer questions orally, read, write and do math in this interview.    

2. Grade Level Requirement: 

A student entering K and1st grade have no pre-school attendance requirements.  However, we strongly suggest that students be taught to read and recite the A, B, C’s before entering 1st grade. 

A student entering grades 2-6, must have attended and passed the previous grade level to be entered into the next grade of our school. 

Transferring from home school: Students who have been homeschooled are respected and welcomed to NLIS.  However, we request that parents show their child's grades to inform us of the level of each student.

Transferring Japanese school students: Students who have been educated in a Japanese elementary school, yet have English skills, are able to transfer into NLIS. 

We do not have any teachers who have special education training, therefore we cannot accept any children with severe learning challenges at this time.  

3. School Regulations, Policies, and Procedures Requirement: 

Parents must agree to follow and support all NLIS regulations, policies, and procedures for their child’s sake.  Children must also agree to follow the school regulations. It is important for parents to give the child a sense of responsibility for joining a school community and for respecting the teachers and leaders of the school.

In order to promote equality in our school, we require all our students to wear simple uniforms and a badge.  We ask that students wear black, navy, gray, white or khaki tops (polo shirts are okay) with black, navy, gray, or khaki bottoms. Black, navy, gray, and khaki dresses are also allowed.  Grades 6 and up can also wear red tops.  Grades 4 and up are also required to have a uniform for physical education, same colors apply.  Friday is free day. Students do not have to wear a uniform on Fridays.

1. 語学力の条件:

年長さんには、英語力の条件はありません。小学1年生も、英語が話せない生徒を何%かは受け入れます。それは、小学1年生全員が読み方から学んでいくからです。小学 2年生以上は、英語の読み書きができ、英語が話せることが必須条件になります。入学手続きが始まるとすぐ に、インタビューのスケジュールが組まれます。インタビューの時間は20〜30分程度で、内容は、口答で英語の質問に答えたり、読み書きと算数も行われます。




ホームスクールからの編入: それまでホームスクールをしていた生徒も大歓迎です。ご両親には、1人1人の子のそれまでの成績を提示していただきます。

日本の学校からの編入: 日本の小学校で学んでいた生徒も、英語力が問題無ければNLISに編入出来ます。
