Students in the 21st century should be able to recognize differences between individuals and understand the truth in different ways of thinking. It is important to have a sympathetic mind and an urge to pursue knowledge throughout life.
As globalization continues to progress in today’s society, education and career choices will expand not only within Japan but also to institutions and companies abroad. We will provide education in which students will hone their use of English as a communicative tool and use it to express their own thoughts and feelings.
We invite you to open your door to a new world here with us at Osaka Gakugei Senior High School.
