GREGG INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL
We want children at GiS to learn, to lead and to make a difference
QUALITY EDUCATION PROVIDER SINCE 1986
The original Gregg school was founded in Tokyo in 1964 as an English language school, one of only a few of its kind at that time. The English school was so popular among the business community that it soon outgrew the small facility in Yoyogi. To accommodate the growing student body, the school then moved to a larger space in Jiyugaoka. The present property in Jiyugaoka was acquired in 1972 and has been home to Gregg ever since.
GiS (Gregg International School), a part of Gregg school, was started in 1986. It is exciting to now see Gregg alumni returning to GiS as parents of some of our students. It is our pride and joy that several of our teachers have been Gregg faculty for decades.

THE GiS WAY
A UNIQUE SCHOOL IN A UNIQUE ENVIRONMENT
We do not compare students at GiS. Each student is respected and treasured because he or she is unique. Students are expected to do their best. They blossom at GiS because they feel they are loved and accepted here.
Classes are conducted with a lot of discussion. Everyone pitches in. No one is slighted. Well established programs of individualized reading in kindergarten and individualized writing in lower elementary are a GiS tradition praised by alumni and their parents.
GiS is a close-knit community of students, teachers, and staff greatly supported by parents. All teachers know the students of their own classes, as well as all other students in the school. New students feel welcome right away.
Our brightly colored school building is a short distance from Jiyugaoka station. The spacious playground is filled with children’s laughter. Sun-filled classrooms are well equipped. Jiyugaoka is a choice residential area for families.
GiS’s cross-curricular program is a highlight in the upper elementary school. Students devote their skills and talents to various projects throughout the year. Working together as a team, students’ intellectual curiosity leads them to a higher level of understanding in science, history and the arts.
We do all the work, you get all the credit
