CGK Community

Introducing the Expanding CGK International School Community

Since its opening in 2016, CGK International School has grown by constantly pursuing high quality care and education for children. The environment and resources required to achieve this are not only the highly qualified and personable teaching staff, who are dedicated and passionate about their students, but also the parents who support their children's development at home. We are also aware that in this growing CGK community, there are many individuals, companies and organizations, including the local communities around CGK, who bring mutual development and a positive influence.

We are grateful to all those involved in the CGK community and will continue to provide a good environment and a variety of opportunities.

The Growing CGK Community

Here we present the CGK community that CGK has built up to date and the prospects for future expansion. We hope that our growing community will enrich the lives of those involved in it.

  • CGK International SchoolCGK Student's Families

    We offer a wide range of opportunities for families of currently enrolled CGK students to interact with others who are part of the CGK community. We also actively cooperate with local businesses, organisations and individuals to ensure that the children can enjoy special hands-on experiences.

  • Study Abroad ProgramCGK Student's FamiliesEducator

    The CGK community is not limited to Japan, but is also active abroad. Even from a very young age students can participate in short-term study abroad programs, where they can join classes with local students at local nursery schools and elementary schools. In addition, at CGK, we offer a one-year study abroad program from the summer of the second year of middle school. In the future, CGK hopes to open a CGK overseas campus and start exchange programs, short-term and long-term study abroad programs between the two campuses, as well as overseas training for staff.

    In the future, language and cultural training for educators will also be offered, both short-term and long-term programs. In an age when the number of teachers is decreasing in Japan, we aim to support educators in improving their skills and career development, and also to improve the status of educators as a whole. Besides contributing to the training of personnel working in international and overseas schools, the CGK staff will also take part in the program to ensure CGK teachers always deliver the highest quality education.

  • Bilingual Preschool Teacher ExchangeEducator

    Management of the Facebook group 'Learning and Exchange Community for Preschool Teachers and Staff'.

    This exchange community provides opportunities for bilingual preschool teachers from CGK Preschool and bilingual preschool teachers from other schools to interact, exchange ideas, and improve their skills through workshops and other activities. International preschool teachers are required to have a variety of skills involving English, childcare and understanding global perspectives, which is why we believe it is important to have an environment where they can grow together.

  • Career TrainingEducator

    As the number of international schools in Japan grows year by year, there is an urgent need to train highly qualified teachers. Working in an international school requires teachers to have a wide range of skills. We support career development for teachers and how to find suitable jobs.

  • Interactions with the Local CommunityExternal Community

    The high level of childcare and education at CGK are made possible by the cooperation of many people. Through interactions with the local community, students feel a sense of being a part of the local community, as well as learning about their own responsibilities and a variety of other lessons.

  • International FamiliesCGK Student's FamiliesEducatorExternal Community

    Yokohama is home to many foreign residents, however, due to language and cultural barriers, these families from overseas often end up in small, limited communities. Yet there are many Japanese families who want to interact with and support foreign families.

    Taking advantage of the fact that CGK is an international school, we operate the community and provide not only a place for exchange, but also a new type of exchange community by sharing professional knowledge and information on international education, childcare, and child-rearing. We also run events.
