Welcome to St. Mary’s Middle School
A Message From the Middle School Principal
As you can imagine, excitement is building in Tokyo and across Japan as the country prepares to host the Olympics and the Paralympics during the summer of 2020. It is a rare opportunity to bring athletes together from across the globe in the spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play. Many of these games will be held in your school’s neighborhoods and surrounding areas.
As a Catholic and International School in the heart of Tokyo we hope to embody the Olympic and Paralympic values of Friendship, Respect, Excellence, Determination, Inspiration, Courage and Equality in our actions and behaviors on a daily basis. Exercising intellectual, physical and emotional muscles requires discipline, determination, and hard work which are all part of being a student at St. Mary’s International School. Along with an underlying belief that the pursuit of excellence is worth the effort involved, our school embraces the values that drives Olympic champions. This desire to be the best we can be is what drives us as a school.
The learning environment is extended beyond the walls of the classroom and into the local and international community with the hope of building a sense of a global community.
Please explore our Middle School links and my twitter account to get a better sense of what we believe and what we do as a school. It is our hope to contribute to a more peaceful world for all people with the same goals and with the same determination as the Olympic and Paralympic athletes who will be in Japan during the 2020 Games.
Better yet, schedule a visit to our school. We will be happy to show you what we do and to tell you about what we believe. A tour, and face to face meetings are the best way for you to discern whether our school would be one that would be a good match for your son and for your family.
Best wishes as you seek out educational opportunities in Tokyo.
