We create, teach, and learn together across three garden-like campuses with leading-edge facilities that support independent inquiry, critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaborative study.
We play sports, put on drama productions, paint, sculpt, engineer, and create. Our students are able to explore and grow in a safe environment and are encouraged to follow their passions to be as successful as they can be.
The JIS community is global and stretches well beyond the school. As we always say, Once a Dragon, Always a Dragon!
