This week we released the schools new website! All of the information
and photos are updated. There are separate English and Japanese
language websites. It took many hours of eort behind the scenes to
get it up and running and we would like to thank everyone involved,
especially the IT department and our website design master, Stephen
Frater. We hope the updated website will attract prospective families
and teachers to choose to come to SOIS. We have an excellent school
and wonderful community and want to show that off to the world.
With a project this large, we are continually improving the website and
will continue to develop it during this school year.
