Sai Sishya International School (SSIS) is established as a private school situated in edogawa ku. The mission of SSIS is to educate students based on principle of strong teacher-student bonding. Our namesake, Sai, was a great teacher who lived in India in late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. His teachings were based on a moral code of love, devotion, contentment. Sishya, in Sanskit, means ardent disciple.
In Japanese, combination of Sai (最- superlative or the best), Shi(師 – expert, teacher), shi (資- resources), ya (屋 – roof) stands for “The best teachers and resources under one roof.”
This is the idea that defines a high quality school. Our vision is to integrate modern scientific methods with ancient philosophy taught by highly qualified teachers at an affordable price for students of this generation to become life-long learners.
We are an IB PYP Candidate school. We are an accredited member of IPC – International Preschool Curriculum and TAIP – Tokyo Association of International Preschools.
The culture of a school affects the quality of teaching, the depth of learning, and the relationships we develop among educators, students, and parents. When students feel safe and connected to their teachers and peers, they are able to achieve extraordinary academic and social learning. When educators develop trust and shared purpose, staff learning and problem-solving is improved. When parents know their children are safe, and feel personally welcomed and respected, support for the school improves and parent learning is possible.
