Head of School’s Welcome

Tim Schlosser

Welcome to Hokkaido International School! We have a rich 65+ year history of academic excellence and a legacy of graduating well-rounded and service-oriented young people. Through academic pursuit, character development, and global engagement, our students grow into mindful leaders, committed to building a brighter future. 

By integrating our "pillar programs"—the arts, the outdoors, and service—we deliver a high-quality international education in a unique way. Our students experience all that Hokkaido has to offer. Even after they leave us, the imprint of this beautiful place never leaves them. Once a Husky, Always a Husky. 

We are proud to have a world-class faculty at HIS who have joined us from all over the world, and they come here because they want to be part of something special—just like our students. We hope to welcome you to the Husky Family soon.
