While attempting to address actual social issues, pupils will gain the skills needed to operate in various fields in the future.Moving away from tests and their limited right or wrong answers, learning here focuses more on projects, which contain both failures and successes. Failure is a valuable trigger of growth and this school does not practice overprotective education, which prevents pupils from learning from their failures.
Features of our learning
Education that makes the most of the individuality of students
Each and every pupil plays a leading role
This is not a place where teachers are the educators and pupils are the educated. Rather, both teachers and pupils create education together. This school will be shaped by each and every pupil’s thoughts about the kind of school and lessons they want.
Failure can be the best form of learning
Moving away from tests and their limited right or wrong answers, learning here focuses more on projects, which contain both failures and successes. ‘Wrong’ answers are decided by other people, but ‘failure’ is determined by the pupils themselves. Failure is a valuable trigger of growth and this school does not practice overprotective education, which prevents pupils from failing and learning from such failures.
Learning from three perspectives
We practice learning that values the following three perspectives in all study activities.
– Learning that fosters the competency to succeed in society
– Learning that starts with students’ inquisitiveness
– Learning that values connections with real society
Society as a whole is our 'school'
Our place of learning does not stop at the school gates. Hiroshima has a rich history and culture as obsered by many tourists that come to visit from all over the world. This city provides students with the perfect opportunity to extend their learning beyond the classroom into the local environment. Here, we encourage our students to go beyond the school gates and live by our slogan of “society is our school”.
Learning environment that facilitates diverse study types
Normally, a classroom is an enclosed space within four walls. However, similar to domestic-style living rooms, the classrooms in this school provide an ‘open’ environment where pupils can relax and learn. Equipped with individual PCs, projectors, and smart white boards, it is an environment that supports pupil collaboration, innovation and creation.
