Tomiya High School

国際3

Tomiya High School aims to develop students who have an independent personality, a highly enterprising nature and who widely contribute their efforts towards the creation of a multicultural society.

Naturally we strive to help students realize their academic goals, as many of them aspire to go on to university. However, we also encourage an ability to think flexibly and the acquisition of a sense of understanding.

The school has a course structure to meet the needs of the times. Three courses are offered: a Humanities course, an International course and a Science and Mathematics course. We take great care of each student while guiding them through the flexible curriculum which each course offers.


Courses

Humanities Course

In this course we aim to give students a solid grounding within the field of the Liberal Arts in order to develop an independence of thought. We place emphasis on 3 subjects: Japanese Language, Geography and History, with optional courses including Classical Japanese Literature, Human Environment and Local History. The ultimate goal of the course is to help students enter university within the Departments of Literature, Law, Economics, Sociology or Education.

Characteristics of Our School

The Three Course Structure:

From the first year all students are divided into the three courses. We guide students meticulously according to their aptitude and academic goals and believe that students develop their talents and potential best through a well balanced curriculum as characterised by each course.

Careful Career Guidance

We take great care in ensuring that as many students as possible can continue their education at university level. Each course requires first year students to study the basic subjects of Japanese Language, Mathematics and English, and in the second and third years there is also a wide variety of optional courses for students to choose from.
