Saint Maur International School
Brief Overview of School
Since its establishment as a Catholic international school in 1872, Saint Maur International School has been a school community where moral values govern all that we do to help students, parents, and staff, reach their full potential. From its inception, the word Catholic has always been interpreted as all-embracing and wide-ranging, implying the acceptance of all, regardless of nationality or religious faith. However, the education offered continues to be based on Christian principles.  The school knows good collaboration and a strong sense of true interconnectedness between and among the over forty nationalities represented among our multicultural students and staff of all faiths and nationalities. At Saint Maur, we believe that all students should be engaged in learning experiences that enable them to develop into: - Moral Citizens - Unique Individuals - Global Citizens - Balanced Learners - and Lifelong Learners. The school offers the following: Montessori preschool (age 2.5- 5+) International Primary Curriculum (IPC), French School (National Curriculum, Grades 1-5), Middle School (Grades 6 -8,) High School (Grades 9 - 12) IGCSE, IB, PSAT, SAT, and Trinity International Music Examinations.
History of School
Saint Maur International School (co-educational, pre-K - Gr. 12) established in 1872 is situated in the residential historical area of Yokohama, a vibrant port city within easy commuting distance to Tokyo, the historical seaside town of Kamakura, and further afield the ski slopes of Nagano. The school is well-serviced by public transportation, being close to train and subway stations, as well as several bus routes. The campus has modern and well-maintained buildings with a dedicated Fine Arts and Science/Robotics Center, and our Cougar Café, Activity & Sports Center, among other specialized facilities. As the oldest international school in Asia, and the only Catholic co-educational international school in the Kanto Plain region, it has been noted for its pioneering spirit and its leadership in educational excellence and innovation, as well as its dedicated care of its students and their families.
