Educational activities and features
Forming leaders for the future
~Through studies, school events, and club activities~
(1) Educational principles for in-depth learning
We are an educational institution that emphasizes study in all subjects on a regular basis. Beyond their in-class academic work, our students participate in fieldwork (8th grade in Tokyo, 9th grade in Tohoku, and 11th grade in Kansai) and research studies in small groups or individually ("theme study" for 9th grade, "independent research" for 11th and 12th grade) and then present their research. This style has been well received as an example of "Enrichment Education," which encourages students to teach and learn from one another.
(2) The only boys' school harvesting rice in Japan
While taking over "Kellner Rice Field," which brought new agriculture during the Meiji era, 7th and 10th grade students experience all that rice paddy production involves. Through these activities, they can also learn about environmental issues and the history of rice cultivation. Harvested rice is served as "red rice" at graduation and entrance ceremonies.
(3) Cultivating leadership and creativity through school events
Many events are held year-round. Our three largest events are as follows:
- Music Festival: Choir competition in June
- Sports Festival: An in-school sports competition held for 2 days in September
- Cultural Festival: Our largest event held for 3 days in November
Cooperation is a key skill to be learned at our school. All of these endeavors help to cultivate the students' creativity, ability to propose ideas, solve problems, and form a consensus as leaders.
(4) Develop good personality through club activities
There are 26 club activities at our school. Through their daily activities and summer camps, students learn to respect each other, thus strengthening their bonds. By participating in club activities, they can develop strength, skills, and mental strength. Many students participate in national and international competitions, and will become excellent scholars or scientists in the future.
