Spotlight On Our Student Kento

Kento, now in Grade 12, has been at ISR since 8th Grade. He is a dedicated and brilliant Mathematician, Physicist, and Computer Scientist. He is planning to study Computer Science at a German university and has just completed his C1 exam in German, which he completed after only 4 years of study!

However, Kento is not just a brilliant student, he is also very active in school life. About two years ago, he started organizing our Japanese book section in the library. He still comes in several times a week to shelve and organize the books. Our librarian Ms Keaton says, “He started this and continues it on his own initiative. We never asked but we greatly appreciate all his help!”

Kento also co-leads the WeDo Lego Robotics SLO® Activity each week, where our younger students are programming their own games and quizzes. Furthermore, Kento really cares about the environment and helps students and staff ensure plastic bottles are sorted and recycled. Finally, he is also always there to support our Japanese community and helps new families settle in at school.

We are proud to spotlight Kento, one of many of ISR’s outstanding students!

Our Student Spotlight project aims to highlight every Friday one of our outstanding students who is, appropriate to this year’s theme, striving for “extraordinary achievements” on a daily basis. No matter if its academic success, a special commitment, or outstanding character traits – we look forward to sharing each of these success stories.
