Inspired by traditional Japanese crests, known as mon, our design brings our Commitment, Mission, and Core Values together in a unified whole. Mon serve as unique emblems that represent identity. The center of ASIJ’s crest utilizes a common motif known as mitsudomoe, made of three chasing commas, which signify a hope or wish and the threefold nature of the universe. ASIJ’s mitsudomoe is designed to remind us of our commitment to know, value, and care for each child, but it is also serves as a reminder that we must all develop empathy and respect for others. Our Commitment flows naturally into our Mission, which is underpinned by three Core Values: Character, Courage and Compassion.

Vision-Led Inspired by the Japanese concept of ikigai, “a reason for being,” our design identifies the four key elements of ASIJ’s vision: Know, Value, Care; Engage, Learn, Lead; Find Your Element; and Make a Difference. These four elements are the pillars of ASIJ’s vision for the future, the strategic goals that should animate discussion and guide decision-making over the coming years. Our ability to achieve this vision is dependent on a number of conditions. First, we must continue to emphasize the unique advantages and opportunities afforded to us as The American School in Japan. Second, we must commit the necessary resources to ensure our faculty and facilities are both world-class, while the experiences we provide students are transformational.

The student population includes families from 49 countries, a level consistent for the past two years. This diversity is complemented by a quarter of the students with both a US and Japan passport (26%). Long term connections to Japan are a contributor factor to the slight increase in the students returning each year.

832

With the attractive offerings of the school’s curriculum and facilities, Japanese families returning home from the US or other international school experiences are attracted to joining ASIJ. Japan-only passport holding students are consistent at 17% in each of the last two years.

837

The largest group of students is still US passport holders (33%), and the size of this group has been consistent over the past few years.
