Global Super High School Program
Hyogo High School is designated as SGH: Super Global High School by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan. The SGH project started in 2014, in order to educate global leaders who can be active internationally, motivating students to foster interest in social issues, communication skills and problem-solving ability. Based on this project, students have been and will be engaged in research activities through assignments on global social issues and business, and study tours in Japan and overseas, in corporation with universities in Japan and in other countries, private companies, and international organizations. Our object is to foster the following four abilities necessary for “creators of future”
・“Scientific thought” in order to understand and justify the result of cutting-edge technology
・“Multifaceted thought” in order to view issues with international outlook and from different points of view
・“Social creativity” such as ambition to contribute to the society, abilities to build relationship of trust and to plan and take actions.
・“Autonomy and vigor” to work positively on anything and design his/her own career
[SGH Project at Hyogo High School]SGH curriculum is mainly for the students of original course “Creative Science” but those students of general course who are interested in SGH curriculum also have opportunities to join by taking optional class called “Global Research.” In Creative Science and Global Research classes, students work on assignments they select by themselves in such fields as local or global social issues and natural science.
