CGK International School is
an IB PYP candidate school

CGK's educational goal is to nurture internationally-minded individuals that can contribute to a better world.
CGK provides an environment where children can learn the skills they need in society and expand their opportunities for happiness on a global scale.

Elementary School Features

Helping Students Develop a Spirit of Inquiry,
Critical Thinking Skills, and Self-expression

Students are taught through inquiry. Lessons based on "inquiry" are not passive, rather students take the initiative to cooperate with classmates and deepen their learning. Through active lessons based on research, discussion, presentation, and communication, students acquire cognitive abilities and the ability to express for themselves the things they have learned.

These skills are indispensable for children to be able to carve out their own future paths and spread their wings to the world. Students will not just get high grades on exams, but the global skills needed in real life around the world.

The advanced course is from 18:00-19:30 and available to grade 5 students and through Junior High School (consideration will be given to grade 4 students with advanced English skills)✏️ Our first project is student choice and we have decided to research the origin of the legendary Loch Ness Monster and create a timeline of events with the hypothesis that it is a myth and not a fact🗓 Student choice allows students to follow their own interests and build their research, critical thinking, and debate, and language skills in a way they decide. For more information about the Afterschool Advanced Course please feel free to get in touch😊4月1日、CGKアフタースクールのアドバンス(上級)コースが正式にスタートしました。アドバンスコースは18:00-19:30で、5年生から中学生までが対象です✏️(英語力の高い4年生には配慮します)最初のプロジェクトは生徒の選択制で、伝説のネス湖の怪物の起源を調査し、事実ではなく神話であるという仮説のもと、年表を作成することにしました🗓生徒が選択権を持つことで、生徒たちは自分の興味に従いながら、リサーチ力、批判的思考力、ディベート力、言語能力を身につけることができます。アフタースクール・アドバンス・コースの詳細については、お気軽にお問い合わせください😊#afterschool #afterschoolyokohama #アフタースクール #英語学童 #探究活動 #インターナショナルスクール #横浜 #インターナショナルスクール横浜 #internationalschool #cgkis #英語上級 #英語アドバンスコース
