     Welcome to Our Elementary and Junior High School!

Greetings and welcome to New Life International School!  NLIS is a small, but growing, elementary through junior high school that provides an English Christian education in the beautiful valley of Kofu City in Yamanashi Japan.  We have grades 1 through 8 from April 2020-2021, and from April 2021, we will have grades K, ages 4 and 5, through 9.  We are just starting our sixth year and are excited about future opportunities that will enhance our instructional program and school community as a whole.  We will start high school in 2022.


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.  We hope to meet you soon. 


With warm regards,


Suzy Brown


Kindergarten Class

Beach Day Fun!

We have a waiting list of families who would like to put their small children in an all English kindergarten class in our school.  We have 5 students now waiting to begin.  When we have 7 children, we can open a class.  Please contact the school if you are interested in putting your child, age 4 or 5, in a full-time English kindergarten.  As soon as we have enough students, we can begin, possibly in autumn of this year!

Art Fair, July 6-10








Beach Day, July 10















Fire Drill, July 17

Class parties, July 22

Summer School 

Because of Coronavirus, our summer school is canceled this year; however, we have room for a few students to come and experience an all English school anytime this month.  It's ¥5,000 a day and the students would join their grade level class and attend our regular days.  We only have a few spaces left because we are serious about social distancing.  If you are interested, call our school at 055-287-9577. 

New Life International School (NLIS) is sponsored by New Life International Church, a Protestant evangelical church located in the same building.  NLIS students do not need to attend church or be Christians to be enrolled in our school.  Please read the site "Christian Education" to understand more fully what we are and how we teach.  For more information about New Life International Church, visit our website:

To receive more information or to see the school personally, please call 055-287-9577 from 9:00 to 4:00 or call Suzy Brown at 090-6014-2663 anytime.
