Special Fees (not applicable to all students)
ELL* Fee (annual)
Students at HIS who are developing their English ability will be classiﬁed based on their needs for additional instruction and attention by both the ELL teacher and their classroom teachers. ELL learners can have special instructional needs for ﬁve to seven years even after being in an immersion setting, depending on a variety of factors. Level I ELL learners come to HIS with little or no English and often receive individualized instruction for a number of months. ESL fees are assessed starting in 1st Grade. Students are charged an annual ELL fee based on their level in August. The fee set in August applies to the entire school year, and will be adjusted the following school year, depending on student progress. Middle and high school students who still need ELL support will be placed in an ELL class and charged ¥125,000 per year, or portion of the year based upon the quarter entered, until exiting the program.

In the case of student withdrawal, tuition will be refunded on a quarterly basis: tuition will be charged for every quarter in which a student attended school. Bus fees will also be refunded on a quarterly basis.
In the event of non-payment of fees, no school records shall be released until fees are paid in full.
Exceptions to quarterly payment must be reviewed by the Executive Board.
The HIS Executive Board recognizes that our tuition and fees would be signiﬁcantly higher were it not for the generous support of the City of Sapporo, the Hokkaido Government, and the US Government, as well as other individual donors. The Board would like to thank the community who contribute so much to HIS in so many ways.
