School profile and core beliefs
The 21st Century is a time of great change and tremendous opportunity. In response to a rapidly diversifying local community, the Osaka YMCA, in co-operation with Osaka City Government, opened Osaka YMCA International School (OYIS) in September 2001. OYIS remains the city's first and only accredited (PK-6) International School and strives to be a leading provider of international education for the citizens and residents of Osaka and its environs. OYIS, as an IB World School, provides a rigorous, challenging and developmentally appropriate educational experience that promotes international mindedness.
