History of Facility Development
Kindergarten Relocation (2002)
The Nishimachi Internationalist Issue Twenty-Nine, Spring 2002
Never an Empty Room
by Tom Walters, Headmaster, 1998-2004
In time for the next school year, NIS’s kindergarten will relocate to a new state-of-the-art facility across the street from the main campus. This is double the space kindergarten teachers currently have at their disposal in the existing kindergarten classroom and adds three large, airy classrooms, office space for faculty, a multipurpose room, and a rooftop playground to our facilities inventory. By the time school starts next fall, this will be a warm and welcoming environment for the class of 2012.
As a result of the kindergarten relocation, space on the main campus will soon be available for increasing overall classroom size in the lower elementary grades. We have had this expansion in mind for several years to relieve congestion and to meet the growing demands of an international community that places high value on multicultural education. Until this moment, however, it had not been feasible.
Kindergartners and their parents appreciate the new and improved classrooms
