Greetings and welcome to New Life International School!  NLIS is a small but growing kindergarten, elementary, and junior high school that provides an English Christian education in the beautiful valley of Kofu City in Yamanashi Japan.  We currently have grades 1 through 8 from April 2020-2021, and from April 2021, we will have grades K, ages 4 and 5, through grade 9.  We are working hard to open a kindergarten this fall, 2020.  If you are interested, please contact us.

We encourage you to visit our school and see that we are a school committed to children.  You will find that this is a vibrant and engaging community of teachers and learners.  


With warm regards,
