Temporary Campus Closure

Temporary Campus Closure

In accordance with a Japanese government request concerning measures to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, the YIS campus is temporarily closed. We currently expect to reopen on March 30, following our scheduled two-week Spring Break, but will post an update should the situation change.

Continuous Learning

Although campus is temporarily closed, "school" continues as we engage students with experiences that continue the planned learning program and help them to stay connected with teachers and classmates. These learning experiences offer authentic opportunities to focus on key concepts, knowledge, and skills. They emphasize interaction and creativity, and involve a balance of on-screen and off-screen tasks that help connect to previous learning and the current curriculum. See our Continuous Learning site for further information.
