Program Description:
Yujin Gakuen Japanese Immersion School is the first public Japanese immersion school in the nation. We serve K–5 in our building and have a middle and high school program in place at Kelly and North Eugene. Students are taught in Japanese 50% of the day and in English for the other 50%. Roughly translated from Japanese, Yujin Gakuen means "happy garden of learning."
School Highlights:
  • Learn Japanese with State of Oregon licensed native Japanese teachers, interns from Japanese universities, and other Japanese volunteers
  • Students learn in four languages: Japanese, English, Music and Technology
  • Technology integration throughout the program, with wireless internet available in classrooms, document cameras and projectors in all rooms, and class sets of laptops available for classes
  • Students present projects, plays and presentations to peers at Yujin Gakuen and sister schools in Japan, as well as at numerous school and community events
  • Music is a major component of the Yujin Gakuen program, not only for teaching Japanese, but for teaching a love of music. Students sing, dance, perform Taiko drums and class plays to peers, families and the public.
School Improvement Goals:
  • Academic: Increase student achievement in writing
  • Climate: Continue to foster a safe, welcoming school environment for students, families and staff
