The Makuhari International School, located in Chiba Prefecture, Japan, is a school designed to give children a flexible and creative learning environment. Because the school views technology as being critical to its overall mission, it sought to find a new solution that would give instructors more flexibility and improve administrative efficiency. In April 2009, the school implemented technological elements of the Microsoft Learning Gateway framework, including Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Microsoft SQL Server 2008. Makuhari International School can now give its instructors more flexible teaching capabilities and enhanced security. The school also has technology that it can build on to further enhance its learning capabilities.
