Elementary School Gunma Kokusai Academy


Welcome to all visitors to our website. GKA is the first accredited English immersion school under the School Education Act in Japan as Ota Foreign Language Education Special Structural Reform Zone School. The elementary has more than 600 boys and girls from Ota City, its suburbs and beyond.

The English Immersion Program implemented at GKA aims at providing opportunities to use and apply English to develop a high level of fluency. We are happy with the new direction it is taking and also aware of the continuing challenges it faces.
We, at GKA, believe that the minds of students are enriched when teachers design learning with hands-on and minds-on activities, and an integrated curriculum. We hope that our daily energy and passion will instill in our students a life-long love for learning.

We hope that the information on the following pages will be useful to you and you are welcome to visit us where we can proudly talk about and show you our school.

We will regularly update our website to provide you with notices and other information on a variety of subjects. Come visit our website again soon.
