A warm welcome from OYIHS. Starting from 2020 we aim to provide our community with an outstanding educational experience built around the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum. At present, we are a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). We are also in the process of transitioning to a more international model of education in our Middle School Programme. Once accredited with our sister school (OYIS) we will offer the only K-12 three programme IB school experience within the city of Osaka.

This is an exciting time for all of us. With outstanding growth at OYIS the YMCA feels empowered to build a creative, innovative and dynamic high school. Our intention is to offer a unique inquiry based experience for our students. Building from the IB framework and the expertise of a our multinational and multi talented faculty we will provide extraordinary quality and value to our students and families. Additionally, we will remain true to the traditional YMCA values of youth leadership and community engagement. As a globally minded organization we will strive to connect our students to both the local community and larger globe.

Please come and see what all the excitement is about.

Passport to a World-Class Education

OYIHS is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme and pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

The Diploma Programme (DP)

The Diploma Programme (DP) curriculum is made up of six subject groups and the DP core, comprising theory of knowledge (TOK), creativity, activity, service (CAS) and the extended essay.

Through the Diploma Programme (DP) core, students reflect on the nature of knowledge, complete independent research and undertake a project that often involves community service.

Assessment and exams

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) assesses student work as direct evidence of achievement against the stated goals of the Diploma Programme (DP) courses.
