Located approximately 30 minutes from the centre of Fukuoka city, Linden Hall High School's goal is to nurture individuals who will play an active role in a rapidly globalizing, dynamic world. Our mission statement, "Develop the individual, instill them with confidence, and send them out into the world" reflects this. In 2013, we became the first Article 1 school (a school recognized as meeting the requirements of the Japanese National Curriculum, guaranteeing that IB graduates are awarded a Japanese High School Diploma as well as the IB Diploma) in Kyushu certified as an International Baccalaureate World School.

In this fast-changing global society, with all its challenges, the need to cultivate open-minded global citizens, who can utilise English fluently in various intercultural settings, is increasingly apparent. We have therefore adopted an English immersion approach, in which the majority of classes, other than Japanese Language classes, are conducted in English. Through interacting with teachers and students from around the world, students naturally acquire both English language skills and respect for diversity. Our classroom methods encourage students to engage actively in their learning and discover the joy of unravelling the world’s mysteries. Until high school, students progress through a common curriculum before electing, in Year 10, to pursue either the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) or the Think and Inquire (TI) Course (for students wishing to continue the National Curriculum).

We also provide numerous opportunities for students to study abroad and participate in international exchange and volunteer programmes. In 2018, we became a member of Round Square, an association of approximately 200 private schools from over 50 countries. Founded in 1966 to develop the next generation of international leaders, member schools participate in international exchanges, conferences and various other activities.

The school building is an airy structure, built to make the most of natural light. It is fully air-conditioned with learning facilities such as IT, Art, and Music rooms, a Science laboratory and Wi-Fi in every classroom. The Library houses 12,000 books, one-third of which are in English, and provides access to paid online resources. Next to the school is the cafeteria, where chefs and registered dieticians serve Japan’s first year-round organic school meals. The surroundings feature lush greenery and the classrooms offer a panoramic view, including the 60,000m2 English Garden – an ideal place to relax and observe nature. Our dormitories, one for boys and one for girls, are within walking distance.
