Yujin Gakuen Elementary School 5

Our child attended YG and we were very involved at the school as parent volunteers. This is truly one of Eugene's best elementary schools and our child is the better for . All of the "sensei" (teachers) are experienced and truly committed to the school's program. Those who teach Japanese are native speakers and are from Japan. The school also utilizes university interns who come from Tokyo to work with the students. In addition to the strong academic program, which is demonstrated every year in test results, the school is the most diverse school in the 4J District. Many cultures, economic levels, and educational backgrounds are represented at YG. As soon as you walk through the front doors, you'll immediately see that this school is unique. We are grateful to have been a part of the Yujin Gakuen community. Arigato!

Yes, teachers are effective at this school. Though each teacher was very different in personality and style of teaching, they are accomplished professionals.

Amount of homework: Just right

We thought that the content and amount of homework was appropriate. And, yes, your child will be able to do their Japanese homework even without your help! We even learned a bit of Japanese ourselves. That your child has to think in two languages is a great thing!

In many ways, these characteristics reflect the essence of Japanese culture and they are modeled by all Yujin Gakuen sensei.

Yes, absolutely. And because the school has a broad multicultural enrollment, students learn to interact positively with peers from many backgrounds.

I have had both my children attend YG and I absolutely love it! The kids are sheltered in a way that other schools aren't able to do in a good way! I love every bit of it. Very good education and ALWAYS in school very limited no school days. If I had to choose again I would choose YG in a heart beat. For those that rate this school poorly I can honestly say they probably have not attended. You do not need to financially contribute to have your child enrolled......YG ROCKS!!!!!!!

This is an excellent school to immerse and learn about Japanese culture. Since teachers are Japanese native-speakers, kids learn to speak Japanese the right way without leaving English behind. My daughter enjoys a lot been at this school, English is her second language and Japanese her third.
