Every year, ISS hosts a scarily successful Halloween costume contest, and this year was no exception! All of the students enjoyed seeing their fellow schoolmates’ creepy costumes and spooky Halloween spirit.

Our new and existing parents took part in our Parent Teacher Social, which was a chance for everyone to get to know each other in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. There was a delicious selection of food and drink and all involved had a very positive experience.
Students in grades 5 - 8 had a memorable and fun three day excursion to Uenomura, Gunma in September. Our tried-and-true location allowed the older students who had visited before guide the first timers in expectations.
The high school students spent three fun packed days in Chiba at the Discover Japan camp in Nanbo. They enjoyed three days of bodysurfing and beach games and ate barbecued chicken burgers and quesadillas at night followed by s’mores.
