About Us


Kobe Campus


Worlds' first Japanese-English bilingual IB school!
Campus sited on a large field. Integrated school combining from ELC through Secondary school

The campus is sited on a large area of more than 6611m². Sunlight comes in through all of the classrooms from ELC to Secondary school. We have amazing facilities such as a cafeteria, where warm lunches are prepared everyday, a playground fully covered with artificial turf for children to run around, a blackbox theater equipped with three screens where it can be arranged freely to be used as a multipurpose room and more. 

Kobe campus is the only integrated school which combines ELC, Kindergarten, Elementary and Secondary school. We have a PYP coordinator to provide IB education, and also a full time clinical psychologist to support students. For excursions, destinations vary from Science Museum, Zoo, Aquarium, Museums, and more to give students the opportunity to learn through their experiences. 

A 10min from Hankyu Line Oishi-station/ Shinzaike-station. Accessible from different areas.

About Us

Founder  Kumiko Nakamura

Businesses that cannot adapt to the changing society won’t survive. However, why does education not change? 
In the time where uniqueness is required and practical usage ICT is a norm, can education be the same as before?

“40 years gap of education” by a British educationist, says parents do not doubt that the education they’re giving to their children is from 20 years ago, meanwhile what children really need is the education that seeks 20 years ahead. There is a 40 years of gap between “parents thought” and “necessary education”. 

We as Kansai International Academy will continue to change and provide necessary education for the future, which we believe will nurture leaders with an international mindset.

Please believe in the possibility of children, without forcing any values, and please have the courage to let your children have “a new education that you have never experienced before”.

The modern view of academic ability is based on the concept that people have a multitude of interests, and that there are common methods for investigating those interests. Therefore, people do not need to decide the direction of their studies in advance. Instead, they can foster skills such as gathering data, mathematical analysis, and critical thinking. 

According to this concept, it would be nonsense to look at all known history and ask what percentage of that history a person knows. Nor does it follow that the purpose of education is to standardize the content of the “textbook” in advance and then master the standardized content.

In other words, the content of academic skills becomes a process and becomes meta-academic, and the target of adaptation of those meta-academic skills is different for each person.

Under this view of academics, all entrance exams must be AO (Admissions Office) exams. Because if there are a million people, there are a million different things each person is working on. Because there is. No single standard test can assess what every person is working on.
