An Innovative Learning Journey

Junior Secondary is a time of transition for students’ educational journey as they adjust to new learning methodologies, educators and social situations. During this period, they assume greater responsibilities, enjoy newfound independence, and gradually prepare for academic challenges, all while we combine rigorous academics with creative exploration and character development to shape well-rounded, forward-thinking global citizens. Our commitment to holistic education mirrors our approach at OWIS Osaka, where we share a common vision of nurturing well-rounded individuals.

Unique After-School Clubs: Beyond Traditional Learning

In middle school, our after-school programmes encourage exploration, experiential learning, and foundational skill-building. We offer a wide range of extracurricular activities, from sports and arts to technology and language clubs. These activities are designed to foster diverse interests and talents, contributing to the holistic development of our students. OWIS also has some unique features like interdisciplinary projects, technology integration, and global awareness initiatives.

After-school activities may often include community involvement where students are introduced to the concept of community service and local engagement. Such activities are supervised and structured with an emphasis on learning the value of community contribution.

Personal Growth & Development

In Middle School, we start to see student councils and community service initiatives take shape, we encourage responsibility, empathy, and effective communication. 

Team activities are focused on participation and learning to work collaboratively. The emphasis is on developing teamwork, communication skills, a sense of belonging, and community awareness.

At OWIS Osaka, we provide a nurturing environment with personalised mentorship and counselling services. We support each student’s unique journey, ensuring a positive and inclusive learning experience.
