Yugakusha School is for Japanese and Japanese-American children who want to pursue a traditional Japanese education in the U.S. We believe that early childhood language and culture education is the key to becoming fully bilingual and bicultural. The curriculum is especially designed for pre- school through sixth grade children, ages one and a half to 11. The methods we use are the Iishii and Mukoyama methods, both of which encourage a deep understanding of the meaning as well as the form of Japanese language. We educate children who will have a strong cross-cultural education. We believe they will help foster a better world for the next generation.
