Located in Mita in the heart of Tokyo, Laurus International School of Science is the first and only STEM school in Japan. We embrace the latest technology and teaching methodologies to prepare the children of today for the world of tomorrow, and all the promise that holds. With a strong focus on science at all levels, we strive to develop each child’s inquisitive mind. Children are introduced to inquiry-based learning from an early age to foster their natural curiosity and thirst for knowledge. We promote project-based learning through a wide range of hands-on science experiments, perhaps working in one of our science labs or learning to use the latest technology such as programmable robots and 3D printers.
With an eye to the future, Laurus International School of Science also has a strong focus on developing traditional core competencies in each student. Our programme includes a wide range of exciting events throughout the year that are fulfilling for students and teaching staff alike.
We are looking for innovative and dedicated professional teachers that would like to work, play, and learn with children. Our programmes are designed for teachers that can use English as the medium to teach our students all about themselves and the amazing world around them. We offer our students a multicultural learning environment and a full immersion English language programme.
