Situated in the heart of the spectacular Japan Alps, Hakuba International School ("HIS") will be an innovative international boarding school that educates through the core values of sustainability, equity, and well-being of our society, catering to students aged 12 to 18. 

At HIS, we aim to be a school that acts locally but thinks globally. We strive to provide a life that allows students and staff to genuinely engage with and learn from the local community and develop profound connections with the natural environment. 

​HIS is an open-space classroom where learning does not stop and start at the classroom door but is integral to every aspect of the students' lives. Students are challenged to discover and pursue their passions while learning independent living skills. 

​We plan to open our doors to the inaugural class in September 2022. In the meantime, please come and join our holiday programmes and experience what it's like to learn in Hakuba! 

Our vision is to inspire and support students during the early stages of their learning journey; encouraging them to become motivated, life-long learners. By providing quality educational experiences, they will develop into responsible, confident, young adults who want to make a difference in our world.
