Welcome To Max!
Director’s Message

The story of Max International School begins from a growing and prevalent concern of the parents living in Tokyo: a quality international school where young hearts could be nurtured in an environment brimming with innovation, motivation, and boundless care.

Together, we, a dynamic group of education visionaries, breathed life into MAX with a singular purpose: to cultivate a vibrant community of exceptionally talented young learners. Here at Max, we've carefully crafted our educational philosophy, drawing inspiration from extensive research and globally acclaimed best practices, all dedicated to nurturing every facet of a child's development. In our rapidly evolving 21st-century world, we hold steadfast in the belief that children are remarkable thinkers, with the potential to unlock unprecedented possibilities.

At Max, we celebrate the beautiful bond between parents and their little ones, recognizing parents as the child's first educators. We walk hand in hand with families to co-create shared goals and expectations for your child's educational voyage. Our commitment lies in bringing out the best in every family and taking immense pride in infusing innovation into early education.

Let’s embark on this wonderful journey together!
