ABOUT US

Preparing students for the future

It is a time of unprecedented change. It is a time requiring individuals who not only respond to change but also initiate it. It is a time to redefine what is possible.

THINK & ACT
INTERNATIONAL
SCIENCE

Time at school is an organic mixture of these three themes with school days filled with discoveries and surprises. Students experience moments that open their eyes to a new world. To nurture the ability to thrive in this uncertain age, MITA International School will continue to provide “global standard” education.

Six-year design for independent learning

What to learn and how to learn it. Students decide. This way, learning becomes enjoyable.

THINK & ACT

Striving every day for deeper learning and creativity

MITA encourages thinking deeply to answer the question “why?” However, thinking alone will not lead to progress. “ACT” means putting thoughts into action, uncovering further questions, and applying methods to solve them. This is the cycle of “THINK AND ACT”. This is how we strive every day for deeper learning and creativity. The “THINK & ACT” cycle fosters deeper learning to create a fulfilling life.

27 full-time international faculty members

International Teachers are an integral part

International Teachers play an important role not only in the classroom but also in school administration and educational programs such as career guidance, university admissions support, and extracurricular activities.

Learn practical English from zero-base

Beginning English learners will acquire practical English with real-world applications. Students develop a balance of the four skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening.

SCIENCE

Innovative education is the way forward

All subjects use
the Scientific Approach Cycle

A six-year program that turns curiosity into exploration

  • Non-math and science classes also use the Scientific Approach Cycle.
  • In the first year of junior high school, all classes study science literacy.
    From the second year of junior high school, each class/course has a distinct program based on its educational focus.

Unique classes and courses

MSTC starts in year 2

Junior high school ISC students who are highly motivated in the field of science can enroll in MSTC from the second year of junior high school.

    High-English-ability students
  • Immersion
    Beginner-English-level students

Learn all major subjects in English to acquire comprehensive English ability

  • Homeroom classes include Academy and Immersion students.
  • Homerooms are majority Academy students and are conducted in English by International Teachers with support from Japanese teachers.
  • English and core academic subject classes are organized into Academy and Immersion sections.
  • For Immersion students, math, science, and social studies classes become progressively all-English during the three years of junior high school.

Opportunities to study abroad in junior high school

  • Students can participate in a single-term or long-term study abroad program in the third year of junior high school.
  • These programs not only improve English skills but also broaden horizons and contribute to a global mindset.

Academy Students are immersed in an international environment

  • Math, science, and social studies are taught in English by an International teacher with expertise in each field.

Academic Seminar

  • Academic Seminar, taught in English, provides a foundation in inquiry methods.
  • Students collaborate in creating multidisciplinary, cross-curricular investigations.

High
School
Students earn an overseas high school diploma

  • In collaboration with the Western Australian Department of Education, the Dual Diploma Program (DDP) offers a rigorous academic program.
  • Students earn a Western Australia Certificate of Education (WACE) in addition to a Japanese high school diploma.
  • Students can achieve the WACE through ATAR or the General Course. The ATAR course is designed to prepare students to take the Australian Test for Admission to Australian Universities (ATAR).

Dual Diploma Program : DDP

Obtaining an internationally recognized secondary education certificate while studying at MITA International School

While in Japan, it is possible to obtain an overseas high school diploma.

MITA’s Dual Diploma Program, in partnership with the Western Australia Department of Education, offers students the opportunity to earn both a Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) and the MITA high school diploma. Courses follow the Western Australian curriculum with qualified teachers at MITA working closely with curriculum specialists from the Western Australian Curriculum and Standards Authority to provide a top quality academic program.

Example of classes offered

  • English or English as an Additional Language or Dialect

ATARGoing to a university abroad is now even more accessible

In Year 3, students receive an Australian Tertiary Admissions Ranking (ATAR) score based on their exam performance. The WACE certificate and the ATAR are recognized worldwide and often eliminate the need to take foundation courses at overseas universities.
