Wonderful school! Only two classes per grade, so students and families are tight. Principle to all teachers are caring and loving. PTA provides wonderful activities every month; roller skates, movi...e night, Sports Day, fall festival, mochi-tsuki (rice cake) and more amazing events.
There are different backgrounds of students. Japanese Japan born, Japanese US born, one of parents is Japanese, American parent speaks Japanese, American non-Japanese speaking family, quarter Japanese, quarter Amaerican, other Asian language speaking family, etc... Diversity makes greater! If you don't understand Japanese, don't worry! Kids are playing together beyond languages. Not everyone is multilingual yet. I noticed parents of students are highly educated. I feel this is more like a private school setting.
After school activities are wonderful! I am a working mother with long commute. I can't take my son to activities in early hours. The school has different teachers and instructors come to teach kids; chess club, art, Karate, and African drum. My son tried all and loves them all. The classes start at 3:15pm, so kids can stay in school. After the class, you can pick up or can send to after school care program provided by Himawari preschool which is in located in the school. I like to tell about the after school activities to working mothers. I used to send my son to Learnig Tree and we were happy, but Himawari works better for us. Because my son can take art, chess, karate and African drum at Himawari. The after school care is $7/hr and if I add little more, I can send him to these educational activities.
I moved to Michigan in summer. I'm very happy to have this wonderful opportunity, sending my son to one of four Japanese English immersion public schools in nation. I love to see how much my son enjoys his school everyday.

As a teacher, this is a great place to work. The principal is dedicated and supportive, the parents are committed and involved, and the kids are amazing. A really positive environment for all.

Hey Niji families, this playground looks like it's going to be fantastic!

This project looks pretty sweet!

The new playground, going up at the park on Six Mile in Livonia, will have several features, including a new merry-go-round, slide and others.
