Boarding School Seminar in Seoul
Introducing Jinseki International School, a European Style Boarding School for Young Children Scheduled to Open in Japan in 2020
Next Educational Environment Development (NEED), which is opening “Jinseki International School,” Japan’s first boarding school for elementary school children, will hold a seminar in Seoul, South Korea to introduce the boarding school, which is scheduled to open in Japan in 2020.
The latest presentation will be given by former Oxford Dragon School headmaster John Baugh, who serves as an adviser for Jinseki International School. In Europe, boarding schools for young children have been accepted by many families as a popular style of education from long ago. Mr. Baugh will express his enthusiasm for creating the first boarding school in Japan for young children, speaking about the attractiveness of the boarding school from the viewpoint of an educator who has come in contact with many children while serving as a headmaster for 30 years.
At the same time, we will also introduce Jinseki Summer School 2019. This school year, it will be the third time that we will be holding this summer school, and it will be held at the site where Jinseki International School is scheduled to open. In addition to past achievements, we will introduce the details of the summer school program. Those considering having their children enrolled in Jinseki International School are encouraged to attend this seminar.
