Realizing the Value of International Education

February 24, 2015 - JAIMS visited Kaiser High School to introduce its College Prep-Global Management Program to Junior and Senior students enrolled in the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP).  With its objective to develop competent global citizens, JAIMS believes that Kaiser’s IBDP is a good complement to its College Prep-Program.


The JAIMS Team members, Mr. Constancio Paranal III and Ms. Akiko Ishikawa-Tyler, visited Kaiser to conduct information sessions at three IBDP classes. The Team would like to express their sincere gratitude to a very supportive and dedicated KHS administrative team led by Principal Justin S.N. Mew, Vice Principal Janice Chen, and IBDP Coordinator Bradley Bogart. Similarly, JAIMS is equally thankful to the instructors, Mr. Ben Lane and Mr. Paul Balasz, who have graciously shared a portion of their instructional time for the Team to speak with their students.


 On a personal recollection, Mr. Paranal commented, “My interaction with Kaiser students have been very positive. I can sense the drive and inquisitiveness. During my visit, I particularly took note of the familial-yet-casual teacher-student interaction – one that encourages engagement, creativity, and productivity. “ 



From his volunteering opportunity to serve as one of the panel judges for the Kaiser IB/Senior projects on February 21, Mr. Paranal also states, “It has truly been my pleasure working with Kaiser High School and we are dedicated towards supporting Kaiser students in furthering their success”
