How much can you expect to pay for school in Okinawa?
On average the yearly cost of off-base schooling in Okinawa costs ¥927,392 or $9,688.
The cheapest school I found, AmeriAsian costs just $3,905/year; the priciest school I found, Okinawa International School costs $17,235/year.
To get the average cost I collected information from 13 schools, 8 of which post their yearly tuition and other related costs on their websites (first-year admission fees, testing fees, any uniform fees, books, etc.).
Some of these schools charge a little less for the lower grades; for calculating this average, I used the higher tuition for each of the schools.
