Overview, mission, and educational objectives
The school's tradition of liberalism and generosity encourages lifestyles that are based on endeavor, creation, and contribution.
The mission of our school is to raise true leaders who can contribute to and be active members of the international community. We aim to become a yardstick for secondary education in Japan by implementing research regarding secondary school education, while having practical training sessions as a laboratory school of the University of Tsukuba.
Education with Diversity
The predecessor of the current Junior and Senior High Schools at Komaba, University of Tsukuba was established in 1947 and more than 10,000 students have graduated over this 70-year period. Our alumni show leadership qualities in various fields not only in Japan, but throughout the world.
Every student is an irreplaceable treasure. They are diamonds in the rough when they begin school, but they are polished in the school environment and improve themselves with a diverse range of classmates and high-quality teachers. They begin to shine as they voluntarily join various school activities that they manage themselves. Our aim is to encourage each student to define their future goals and develop the academic skills, abilities, sensitivity, and social skills to reach these goals. To this end, we also provide “an agricultural education program” in a paddy field, “integrated study programs” and “field-trip programs”. We strive to create an environment where students can independently manage various activities, for example, Student Council activities (in junior high and senior high, respectively), extracurricular club activities, and major school events such as Music Festival, Sports Festival and School Festival.
Our students’ personalities are developed in a diverse range of unique ways, including Super Science High School (SSH) programs, a community contribution project called “Tsukukoma Academia”, and exchange activities with overseas schools. Also, to accomplish the mission of the laboratory schools of the University of Tsukuba and function as a center of “leading education”, “international education”, and “teacher education”, we cooperate with the university in various research and joint projects. As one of the affiliated schools of the University of Tsukuba, we also collaborate with related organizations to develop true leadership around the world in various fields. We hope that each student will achieve their dreams, and make lasting contributions to society.
