Job Description

ISN (International School of Nagano) is an English-Japanese bilingual preschool and elementary school situated in Matsumoto-city in Japan’s beautiful Nagano Prefecture, serving families in the Matsumoto region and surrounding communities. With a great capacity in our Minami-Matsumoto Campus (preschool), Kotobuki-Campus (preschool and elementary school) and to-be opened in 2017 Shimauchi Campus (preschool and elementary school) we enroll students age 2 to Grade 5 in 2018. ISN is an IB candidate school.

A wonderfully diverse school currently serving 130 students with a vibrant and dedicated faculty, devoted parents, and committed Board of Education. ISN’s teacher to student ratio is on average 1:15 and this excellent ratio enables experienced ISN teachers to conduct an IB based approach to the curriculum. The main duty of the teacher is to lead their class with excitement and passion for a world standard education while implementing the inquiry-based approach to instruction. Candidates should have experience in collaborative leadership, high expectations for faculty, staff, and all students, and be able to inspire the whole-school.

We are proud of our homely relationship among all the staff members who are incredibly skilled and wonderful team-players.


ISN School year
Starts April 1st and ends March 31st

Duties of position
8:00-16:00 The main tasks and duties of the teacher starts at 8 am by greeting children who are arriving at school and ends at 4pm. Teachers should arrive sufficiently early to ‘begin’ teaching at the prescribed starting time and clean and tidy up the classroom before s/he leaves. The school may arrange an early shift (7:30am start) to greet children who arrive early. We are open from Monday to Friday. Children will learn about themselves, people and the world around them in English through the activities we prepare and by spending almost all day here in ISN. The teachers are responsible for submitting the weekly plan for each class before the teachers meeting every Friday.

Training and start day
The start date of the position is earliest possible in January 2018. The recruited teacher should arrive in Matsumoto few days before the training (5-day school training from the stated start day 9:00-16:00 1 hour break, paid 5,000 yen per day. Lunch is provided.) so s/he will have some rest, time to settle down.

Accommodation and other expenses
All foreign and Japanese teachers at ISN have a direct contract with the local real estate agencies, who we know quite well, for furnished/non-furnished flats. In the case of foreign teachers the school needs to be the guarantee. ISN administration staff members will help you finding the flat by listening to the teachers preferences from what is available on the market. They will help the teacher to open the gas, electricity, internet, water and so on by contacting different companies before the teacher moves in. They also support the teacher for the first day of the teacher’s arrival and offer you a lift for shopping (assuming that you’d need big things to start your new life such as bed sets). All ISN teachers are responsible for their flights and accommodation.

Our administration staff members are very good and experienced to find your flat. For 50,000 yen per month flat for example, including the first month rent, deposit, the cleaning fee when you are coming in and getting out, the insurance, the commission fees and so on, the initial cost would be about 150,000 - 200,000 yen.

If the teacher needs so, the school offers financial support at the initial stage. The school can advance the teacher’s deposit for the accommodation, for example, and it can be deducted from the salary for a few/several months.
