We have gathered some of the top Tokyo Area International Schools’ 2017 Calendars in an attempt to help simplify planning. We often hear from other parents and organizers of community events that all the international school’s schedules being different causes may headaches. Hoping readers find this helpful. If you would like to add your school to the list, please let us know and we will consider. Also if there are corrections needed on the below information, please let us know. We will add the Autumn semester as calendars are confirmed.
Tokyo Area International Schools’ 2017 Calendars – January to June
We have kids in both Japanese and International schools so the juggle is even that much more! Typically Japanese schools have three semesters with breaks in-between. The school year begins around April 5th and runs until about July 20th; 2nd semester runs from about August 31st – December 26th, and 3rd semester from January 6th – March 25th. If you have kids in both International and Japanese schools the biggest challenge is usually summer vacation since most international schools are out for at least ten weeks and Japanese school five weeks.
