We have a credit system and a semester system.  In addition, we carry out efforts for students to correspond to their interests, abilities, aptitudes and various courses.  Moreover, we give a clear lesson that we attach importance to for students and make an environment that motivates them to study.  Furthermore, we promote study by the students’ own accord and growth of their ability and aptitude so that they can aim for their self-realization. 



Curriculum meets the various needs of students 

(Curriculum widely corresponds with courses, interests and aptitude.) 


A clear lesson that we attach importance to and an environment that motivates students to study 



In order to accommodate a variety of career paths, our school offers seven 45-minute classes that allow students to take many classes in one week.


◎ 2学期制のメリットを生かし, 


We have introduced a semester system into our school that has the first semester (April to September) and the second semester (October to March).  You can select school events carefully and save school hours, unlike the trimester system, which is popular in Japan.  In addition, you can plan your study with a long-term vision and achieve your goal, making sure your progress.


◎ 柔軟なクラス編成


Generally, Japanese highschools are organized with around 40 students per class but our school has a flexible class organization in response to students' course selection in their second and third years. There can be a maximum of 40 students in the first year research course, but in the second and third years, students are divided into ”humanities and social sciences” and “natural sciences”, and they achieve learning results while conducting in-depth research activities in their respective fields. 

◎ 文系・理系の選択,幅広い科目選択


 In general high school, each class consists of forty students, but we arrange homerooms according to students’ choice of courses.  The tenth graders consist of three classes with forty students each, and eleventh and twelfth graders consist of four smaller classes.
