Q. What is the school's educational policy, philosophy and style?
Ichimura High School celebrates its 110th anniversary. Since its foundation, we are focused on developing global human resources who can make a leap in the world under t "the world is supposed to be my market." Mainly focusing on English education, we incorporate an educational curriculum that includes four primary skills: listening, reading, speaking and writing. Furthermore, we have an art education that is rarely found in other schools.
By introducing some experiential kind of learning, such as foreign language training in Canada and New Zealand, internships in various companies, the experience in farming life and nature, and so on, we are actively making each one tackle learning.
Also, the school is surrounded by greenery within Nagoya city, so the students live a comfortable school life at our school with abundant nature and extensive gardens.
Q. Why did you decide to change the school uniform?
Although it is a traditional school, we have been doing educational reforms aiming at the society of the future. "How to live life?" Our school has asked this question to students, having in mind on how we can make a significant change in society with their career and their lives. One of the reforms was the incorporation of an individual active learning through English education and experience education.
I decided to introduce uniforms that can embody this reforms, and this is the reason we changed uniforms. So far in the educational philosophy and educational curriculum of the school has incorporated art thinking and new teaching methods, and uniforms are different from other schools too. I think we should be a new school of its own. By adopting this new O.C.S.D. brand, we have an original pattern in the world.
