The mission of Fukuoka International School is to create a dynamic learning environment in which students can be educated to high international academic standards. We strive to be a model of unity in diversity in which the individual is respected and each student is challenged at his/her own level.
We believe this can be best accomplished by;
- nurturing a spirit of inquiry and self-motivation in learning;
- developing students' analytical, critical and creative thinking ability;
- teaching skills required for life in the future;
- cultivating a strong sense of self worth and respect for others.
