Education Plan 





1. School Mottos


            Autonomy and Creativity

2.Educational Guidelines


(1)To cultivate the students' attitudes toward overcoming their inhibitions to achieve rich creativity, in order to foster a self-disciplined approach to awell-educated, broad-minded personality.


(2)To foster the students' personal qualities required for the 21st century: to enjoy learning throughout their lives and to maintain enthusiasm for continuous self-cultivation.


(3)To awaken the students' international awareness and the importance of kindness towards others.


3.Administration Guidelines


  We will fully foster the students' fundamental scholastic abilities, physical strength, and have them establish a fundamental lifestyle. Also, the students will acquire traditions based on the respect for human dignity, thereby meeting the demand of the community and making the best use of the school facilities.




(1)Subject Guidance


We put the highest importance on having the students acquire basic skills in their subjects according to the individual stages of their development.  For that purpose, we will let the students choose subjects according to their ability, adaptability, and choice of career.  We will also keep abreast of the current teaching techniques through which we hope can impress and excite the students, stimulating the students' intellect and feelings in lessons.




(2)Student Guidance


On the basis of homeroom guidance, we will try to understand the changes in each student's behavior, feelings and attitudes, and endeavour to educate them to enjoy a healthy life-style. Along with guidance plans to heighten the students' sense of responsibility, spirit of service and moral practice as members of the community, we plan to activate student government and to promote practical activities.




(3)Course Guidance


We will see to it that the students can enjoy their school life by allowing them to choose proper courses and subjects suited to their individual abilities and aptitudes.  We will collect information and data on the students' desired careers, and try to fulfill those educational requirements.




(4)Education of Human Rights


Through school activities and personal guidance, we will develop students’ esteem for human rights and their realization of a good community conscience.




(5)Education for International Understanding


We will offer the students a wide perspective into world affairs and encourage them to be internationally open-minded. We will teach them thepracticality of international cooperation by promoting cultural events, holding overseas study tours, and establishing the curriculum of the Department of Global Communication.




(6)Health Care and Safety Education


   We will teach the importance of health care to students and instill in them a habit of developing their physical strength throughout their life.  In addition, we will carry out education in matters of personal safety, danger awareness, consideration of public manners,and traffic laws.

(7)Administrative Improvement


  We will endeavor to constantly improve teaching methods and standards by evaluating teacher qualifications and testing student performance. These evaluations will be analyzed and assessed on a yearly schedule.




(8)Use of School Facilities


We will maintain school facilities rationally and efficiently. We will keep the grounds in orderly and appropriate condition in order to ensure student safety and maintain community standards.




(9)Promotion of the School


The administration strives to keep aware of students’ and parents’ perception of their education at Naruo High School. We will continually enrich the syllabus and the school departments to help students make good choices about their future career.
