Testimonials

Thank you Kinmon Gakuen!

Both our son (8) and daughter (5) have been enrolled in Kinmon Gakuen for several years.
Our kids have tri-lingual background (English/French/Japanese), and we see a perfect fit to the curriculum Kinmon Gakuen offers.
Kids are excited to participate in many Japanese cultural and seasonal activities that the school offers… from Mochi-tsuki (rice cake pounding) & New Year resolution using brush (Kaki-zome) in Jan, Girls day (Hina-matsuri) in March, Children’s day (Kodomono-hi) in May, Tea ceremony (Ocha-kai), and they also share the same building for after school program activities such as Karate class (Japanese martial arts).

Teachers and staff are very friendly and provide a sense of community based in Japan Town.

We highly recommend Kinmon Gakuen!

My son is high school student, and started studying at Kinmon 3 years ago. He is fast learner and I know it is also owe to the school, teachers and quality lessons. The high school takes the hours of study at Kinmon as a credit of forgin language. After graduating from high school, we are thinking him to transfer to the adult lesson at Kinmon.

When my son showed his interests learning Japanese, I took him to Kinmon to have a trial lesson. Since then, he has been enjoying going to Kinmon every Saturday. Caring staff, excellent teachers, and lots of fun cultural activities. Class room and parents’ lounge have been upgraded. Very friendly atmosphere. I hope, when my son grows up, he will take me around Japan using Japanese language that he learns at Kinmon.

私は10年以上にわたり金門学園を使用させていただいております。多くの子供たちが勉強に集っていた90年代の金門学園も、911のテロやIT企業の相次ぐ撤退の影響か、01以降は日本人自体が日本町から姿を消し始め、それに伴い金門学園で日本語を学ぼうとする日系人の子供たちも減っていきました。近年に入り日本文化に興味を持つ新たな世代が生まれ、金門学園も新たな校長先生を始め、意欲に燃える若い先生達の努力により、建物も授業内容も、そして雰囲気さえもガラリと一変し、充実した「日本語学校」として再生したのは、驚くべきことです。元気な子供たちの声で溢れる、本来の「金門学園」に戻ったのは嬉しい限りです。この「新生・金門学園」に一人でも多くの子供たちが集い、日本文化の素晴らしさを学んでくれることを願ってやみません
