Alumni

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.
