Marist Brothers International School

A Message from the Head of School

Shawn Hutchinson

Welcome to Marist Brothers International School, Kobe, Japan. Situated in the seaside residential area of Kobe, our school community is inclusive, warm and friendly and offers the highest of academic standards and pastoral care. We are a dynamic school offering an international education to students from around the world.

Our WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) accredited academic programs from Montessori through to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme provide the basis for smooth progression and easy transition between early learning and high school. Our passionate, experienced teachers are professionals who are willing to go the extra mile to ensure that all students are offered the opportunity to fulfil their potential both in and beyond the classroom.

The quality of teaching and learning at Marist Brothers International School and our teachers’ ability to know our students sets us apart from other schools. Learning and a foundation of excellence are central to our work.

The result is that, whether our students are local or expatriate, returning to Japan from overseas, transitioning from another school in Japan or seeking places at top universities around the world, Marist Brothers International School students are invariably well-equipped to take the next step in their education.

We are a proud community where our core values underpin all that we do. Education here means so much more than the pursuit of academic results. Sports, the arts, and community service are all central to the balanced learning programmes we offer. We are acutely aware of our obligation to prepare young people to make their way in the world as confident, caring and responsible citizens.

Great schools are built on the efforts of good people, and I believe that our teachers and students are among the very best. Why not come and judge for yourselves? We would be delighted to meet you.
