Our Mission

Inspiring Passionate Learners
and Global Leaders

Our Vision Statement

Sheridan Japanese School strives to challenge students and expand their knowledge of another language and culture; while providing a small, unique, and multi-age learning environment with high academic and behavioral expectations alongside exceptional parental and community support.


What is your ‘why’? What is your reason or purpose for choosing SJS?


That is the question we ask staff and student alike. SJS is a community that strives for an individual to act with reason and exercise self-awareness. Thus, we ask our students and staff to reflect on ‘why’ they want to be part of the SJS community. We believe that when we know our why, our what has more of an impact.

The Code

At SJS we are...


  • We use our words, actions, and belongings in ways that value ourselves, others, and our spaces.


  • We make choices that positively protect and/or enhance ourselves, others, and our spaces.


  • We continue in a course of action, despite difficulties or challenges, realizing that what we cannot do now is only what we cannot do yet.


  • We strive to be academically curious, to understand the learning value of mistakes, and to do what may be difficult or unpopular.


  • We are empowered by our efforts, progress, choices, relationships, and spaces.
