" Our success as a school can be measured in part by the positive impact our students are having on the local community. "

-Roderick Jemison, Head of School

UWC ISAK Japan would not be the remarkable school that it is without the support of the local community, and we are strongly committed to developing and maintaining strong ties with the people of Karuizawa. Students volunteer locally, and many choose to develop leadership projects that aim to improve the lives of residents in the area. We also invite local students and community members to campus for special events throughout the year.

This type of ongoing involvement helps our students appreciate the importance of community interaction and develop their leadership skills in real-life situations. It also allows international students the opportunity to practice their Japanese and discover more about everyday life in Japan.
