-Parent of a 1st Grader, Higashi Ku


"This is the second English school my son has been to. His last school was very different - they have no activities, no chance to be active learners, just listening to the teacher. Rainbow Bridges’ teachers are all enthusiastic and warm-hearted. Learning English is important of course but what is more important is for kids to be able to go to a school where they can feel safe and have fun at the same time. We parents also have fun at school events! Thank you, RB!"
