Safety and Security

GSA International School is implementing the following measures to ensure safety of our students.

Security

Visitors are asked to submit their photo ID. Also, we are fully equipped with smoke detectors and fire extinguishers.

Sanitation and facilities

We use non-toxic sanitizers for cleaning. Also, the cleaning equipment is safely stored away from student’s reach. Toys, lesson materials, and furniture are all periodically sanitized in order to prevent bacterial contamination.

Health Control

GSA International School is officially registered as unlicensed nursery by the office of governor of Tokyo. Therefore, we make sure that our safety and sanitary aspects are in accordance with the mandate of the Tokyo ward.

We have health and dental examinations two times a year, in spring and autumn.

Homeroom teachers measure the children's body temperature upon their morning arrival at GSA International School and check their health condition daily.

In preschool, we use a communication notebook (Renraku-cho) to monitor pupils’ physical and psychological health and inform parents.

We constantly pay close attention to children’s health. In case there is a sudden change in their health, any sign of infectious diseases (chicken pox, measles, foot-and-mouth disease, etc.), or in a situation where other children may contract a disease, we immediately contact the child’s parents. Also, when the situation is deemed appropriate, staff will accompany the child to receive medical attention at designated hospitals.

Emergency

We always inform new parents about our emergency routes upon their child’s admission to GSA International School.

We do monthly emergency drills according to our emergency protocol in order to be prepared in case of natural disasters, such as earthquakes, fire, and other emergencies. Upon our emergency drills, we simulate different situations to efficiently instruct children to act accordingly and evacuate safely.

Teachers

GSA International School primarily hires native English teachers, who have studies and acquired teacher’s license through foreign academic universities. Native Japanese teachers are required to have studied and acquired teacher’s license through academic universities abroad and possess English and communication skills that meet our standards.
The teachers’ practical skills are also tested prior to hiring.

All teachers are required to receive emergency training to ensure they understand emergency routes, protocol, first aid, and CPR.
