Welcome to the TIS Community!

We are your Community Links team

We are all parents at the school and understand that moving to a new city and a new school is not always easy. While it can be exciting to start a new adventure, it can also be stressful and confusing. We are here to offer our support and to help you to feel plugged-in to the community.

We offer a reminder / refresher ‘orientation’ session at the end of the Welcome to Tokyo workshop at the beginning of the school year

We go over how to access information on the website and the school calendar, e.g., and a Q & A session


We can refer newcomers to the PSA, to school contacts and to language representatives


We offer a friendly ‘ear’ away from school for those feeling a bit lost or overwhelmed

Forgotten who to contact about the school bus?We can put you in touch with the right person.

Didn't receive a Pizza Friday order form? We can point you in the right direction.

If you’d like to meet other people from your home country or who share your first language, we will try to connect you.

e look forward to hearing from you!
