Sendai Ikuei Gakuen High School is located in the coastal area of north-east Japan, 90-minutes from Tokyo by bullet train. Sendai is the capital city of Miyagi and a home to over 1 million people. It is a thriving metropolis boasting vibrant festivals, local specialty cuisine and a hub for the Arts.

Sendai Ikuei Gakuen offers the MYP and DP in a unique dual language environment. It is committed to equipping students with the knowledge and skills needed for the 21st century. Though it is impossible to predict what today’s students will face in the 21st century, it is possible to give them the skills to succeed in an uncertain future. Through offering the IB programmes at Sendai Ikuei Gakuen, we aim to:

  • Be sincere and confident global communicators.
  • Be responsible in our learning.
  • Be innovative in addressing local and international issues in our community.

In order to enable students to achieve their post-high school goals, at either Japanese or International universities, Sendai Ikuei Gakuen offers a comprehensive IB course in two streams - the regular IB Diploma Programme (with all subjects except language B conducted in English) and the Dual Language Diploma Programme: in which students can take up to four subjects in Japanese.

There is a growing number of international students studying at Sendai Ikuei Gakuen from a variety of backgrounds including China, Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, Uganda, and Kazakhstan - many of whom aspire to enter Japanese universities. The IB programmes at Sendai Ikuei Gakuen provide these students with the opportunities to further their horizons in the future by strengthening both their English and Japanese language skills to an academic level. Students can board at the school dormitory close to the Tagajo campus.

Sendai Ikuei Gakuen IB students experience a unique bilingual (English and Japanese) education in an international environment. Opportunities to study abroad, participate in local field trips and cultural activities, interact in Japanese and English with teachers and students from a variety of countries, study in state-of-the art facilities, engage in school-based Model United Nations camps, and CAS workshops, while experiencing the uniqueness and richness of Japanese culture.
