【 A Message from the Principal 】
    In the future, society will enter an era of rapid change and unpredictability due to the continued development of information technology such as ICT and AI as globalization progresses further. It is said that, after graduating from university, more than half of today’s children will get jobs that do not presently exist. Moreover, there is a high possibility that about half of jobs will be automated in the next 10 to 20 years, so education is of paramount importance.

    Given these circumstances, our school has adopted a mission statement of “Giving students the skills to unlock the future in a society with no ‘correct’ answers” as a new educational vision based on the concepts of "Creative Autonomy" and "Cheerful Fellowship". Prioritizing humanity that makes the best use of collaboration and critical thinking ability to analyze and improve the current situation, our basic stance is to develop the courage to challenge new things. Through nationally designated Super Science Highschool educational activities such as schoolwide research programs, we are working to develop problem-solving abilities so our students can play an active role in Japan as well as overseas. In addition, since last year, we have been designated as a STEAM education model school, which is one of the prefecture’s cutting-edge projects. It is a cross-curricular education program that incorporates elements such as science, technology, and English and utilizes the latest ICT technology. Through this project, we are promoting new learning practices in order to develop citizens who can play an active role not only in Japan but also around the world in the future. The faculty and staff are working together to ensure that all students continue to take the initiative in learning and take on challenges through exploratory learning. We look forward to the continued support of the PTA, alumni association, and local residents.

    In addition, our school will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2024. Our school, originally Kakogawa Junior High School, transitioned to senior high school education and was renamed Kakogawa Higashi High School and has since continued building on its history. We will continue to work in cooperation with the alumni association to make the 100th Anniversary Commemoration Project, which is a major milestone, successful. We appreciate your understanding and support.
