Overview

As the first public Japanese immersion program in the country, we are committed to providing a high quality academic and cultural experience that serves as a foundation for your child’s life-long learning.

We offer a unique K-12 bilingual education in English and Japanese language and culture. Our Japanese immersion program continues from elementary to Kelly Middle School and North Eugene High School. Our student body is made up of many different ethnic groups and cultural backgrounds. We welcome families interested in providing their children with a bilingual and multicultural learning experience.

Yujin Gakuen prepares students through a bilingual integrated curriculum with a strong emphasis in computer technology. Japanese and English speaking teachers cooperatively teach each grade level to meet district and state guidelines. Art, music and dance are systematically integrated into learning activities and are the basis of public performances in the community. Students spend half of their day learning in Japanese and half of their day in English. Skills in both languages are taught and reinforced as part of instructional units.


Academic Excellence

shapeimage_2Our children – international citizens – respectful, responsible, and confident! Education is a shared process that begins at home, is shared with school, and continues in the community. Teachers and parents working together provide children with opportunities to learn about their world and themselves. Our children then develop the skills and knowledge necessary to participate in local, national, and international communities.

Students in grades 1 – 5 spend one half of their day in Japanese and one half in English. Grade level teams coordinate areas of the curriculum so that students receive the knowledge and skill instruction necessary to meet the Oregon State Benchmark expectations. Teachers also coordinate enrichment and extension activities.

By the end of fifth grade, students will demonstrate academic progress that meets or exceeds the state benchmarks in English. In Japanese, students will demonstrate oral and written skills that meet the Japanese proficiency guidelines. These skills are demonstrated through group and individual class projects, plays, individual assignments, and assessment tests.

Additionally, Yujin Gakuen strives to inspire all students to become caring global citizens and life-long advocates between the people of Japan and the United States.
