Pacific Rim International School opened in the Fall of 1989 and is committed to providing children with the very best Chinese-English and Japanese-English bilingual multicultural education in a Montessori environment.
Our emphasis is on the development of the whole child: social, physical, emotional, intellectual, linguistic, aesthetic, spiritual and cultural needs.
We devote our best efforts to assisting children in the acquisition of skills and knowledge as a preparation for life.
Our school offers a comprehensive bilingual-multicultural program for children in Mandarin and Japanese between the ages of eighteen months to eighteen years old.
Pacific Rim International School believes that when children are guided to follow their natural path of development, they will attain their highest level of learning.
We recognize and respect each child's unique abilities and talents.
We maintain our commitment to providing children with the opportunity to progress at their own pace and explore by their own choice within limits.
