Alumni, former students, parents of alumni, and former staff are invited to join fellow Dragons in Tokyo and London
As a school with strong ties to the constantly changing international community in Japan, we consider our alumni to include all former students - "once a dragon, always a dragon". We are proud of our alumni and they are an important part of the YIS community both locally, internationally and online.
We aim to continually offer more opportunities for alumni to be actively connected to the school. This includes visits, networking, mentoring opportunities, interactions with students, and by offering new ideas on how to keep YIS at the forefront of international education while still maintaining its small school feel and strong sense of community and culture.
We are always interested to hear what alumni are doing, whether it's in their professional life and careers or more personal achievements such as marriages and births.
Our alumni portal allows former students the chance to browse and download past yearbooks, keep their information up to date and view the latest alumni news and events in one convenient place. We will be sending login details to all our alumni, if you haven't received contact us for assistance.
Class of 1996
My first visit to the school, just a few days before the start of the semester, was quite memorable as I had chosen the school by brochure alone...yep the internet didn't really exist back then!
Class of 2014
I am currently based in Los Angeles as a music composer writing music for several upcoming short films. In L.A., I am able to network through projects and mutual friends and also through fellow YIS Alumni.
Class of 2012
I am now based in New York City as a professional actress. I audition for musicals, plays, TV, and film projects constantly. I get to travel and work across the United States, which I think is a perk of being a performer.
Class of 2016
A lot of my favorite memories in YIS come from the sports matches and practices. I used to play a sport each season, rotating between football, cross country, and field hockey.
Class of 1969
I would like to relive all the years I was at the school and I wouldn't have done anything differently. I loved the culture there.
