From writing with chalk on slate to bioengineering using CRSPR technology, student’s learning has changed dramatically over the last 117 years at The American School in Japan.
Our vision for ASIJ, the product of two years of development, is detailed in our publication, The Future is Here. There we outline our educational beliefs and our mission-driven approach to learning. Our aspirations for our students’ future are great, and we’re actively planning and designing strategy to make ASIJ one of the leading international schools in the world.
To deliver on our ambitious vision, ASIJ will need the support of our community. Each area of our Strategic Design Framework (SDF) will require resources if we are to successfully develop the programs and build the facilities our students and faculty will need to be successful. Within the SDF we have identified four fundamental conditions that are essential for ASIJ to realize our vision. These are a world-class faculty, world-class facilities, transformational experiences and the ability to leverage our location in Japan.
Today, ASIJ is at a pivotal moment in its long history. We are at a point in time when the school has an opportunity to move forward in new and exciting directions that will provide our students with transformative learning experiences.
Tuition alone will not allow us to get to our destination in the time frame that we want. To move forward, ASIJ needs the philanthropic support of our entire community. To give to ASIJ is to invest in those who will shape our future.
We support ASIJ because we greatly appreciate the terrific education it has provided our children so far, and because there are still many things that the School can and should achieve as it moves to implement its newly developed strategic vision.
