About OWIS

One World International School – Osaka is an all-embracing International school that aims to nurture students in a happy and inclusive environment.

Our Learning Focus

OWIS is the best international school in Osaka which will prepare students to become leaders of tomorrow.

Our school allows students to learn in a relaxed and engaging setting, where they can focus on collaboration, social interaction and teamwork.

One of the first things you will learn about OWIS is that we are passionate about providing every child with an exceptional education, beginning in their early childhood and extending until they complete secondary school.

We can help your child by:

Offering them a learning environment where they are supported by dedicated and expert educators who are thoughtful and experienced.

Encouraging them to challenge themselves and continue to work toward their goals by providing them with a best in class curriculum.

Allowing them to explore their interests through a variety of extra-curricular programmes.

Teaching them to socialise with their peers and allowing them to learn to be respectful and empathetic of people of all backgrounds.

OWIS Model

Our interactive learning environment is ideal for students to explore their individual interests and work towards their future career goals.

The well-designed and progressive International curricula will allow mid-term joining from other international schools to blend in with their new surroundings and socialise with their peers.
