Individual education Seifukan High School announces survey results on high school selection and career path of 202 high school students
Seifukan High School (hereafter referred to as Seifukan) is a new type of high school that is scheduled to open in Akashi City in April 2023. , conducted a questionnaire survey of 202 high school students about the high school education they want and the skills they want to acquire. (Note 1) Although there is a tendency to seek skills that are not limited to the so-called 5 subjects such as communication skills, and are looking for skills that focus on the ability to be a member of society, many high school students wish to go on to university. I answered.
Current high school selection is based only on physical distance and academic ability
In a survey on why they chose the high school they are currently attending, the most common answer was “school deviation”, followed by “distance from home” and “school style”. It is thought that there are many methods of selecting school candidates from deviation values and commuting time and deciding on school style.
In addition, 25% of the respondents chose “because my parents or teachers told me” or “somehow”, revealing the percentage of students who did not choose their own high school.
On the other hand, I also learned that very few students consider the school’s educational policies and class content, such as the curriculum, as criteria for choosing a school. In high school selection, it seems that there are few cases in which students themselves examine the content of their education and make decisions. [Image 2
Communication is what I want to learn in high school
When asked about the skills they would like to acquire in high school life, about 40% of high school students improved their communication skills. In addition, there is a tendency to want to learn skills that will lead to future jobs, such as presentation skills and English skills.
In addition, the percentage of students who answered that they want to learn programming is small, and while there are many responses to general-purpose skills, it seems that there are few students who want highly specialized skills.
There are many different words for the ideal high school
As a result of asking the question, “What kind of high school is your ideal high school?” in a free description, many answers were given with keywords such as “freedom” and “individuality.” In particular, we received a great many requests for a school that not only does not restrict students, but also respects their autonomy in learning. Example answer
・ A high school where you can freely do what you like
– Respects individual ideas and desires
・Each student can demonstrate their individuality, teach the importance of individuality, do not set more rules than necessary, and let students know that what is not good is not good
・You can choose the subjects you want to take. You can decide when to post. You can choose your teacher. There are no useless rules. online ok. Little homework. I fully support what I want to do.
About 83% of students want to go on to university
83% of high school students wish to go on to university after graduating from high school.
I want to improve my skills even in high school life, but I don’t choose high school based on what I learn
According to the survey results, high school students want to go on to university, which is advantageous for their future careers and employment, while also seeking an environment where they can improve their skills even during high school life.
On the other hand, regarding high school selection, it became clear that distance and deviation were the main reasons for selection, and that the skills and curriculum that could be learned were not the reasons for selection.
In order to realize proactive learning, it is essential to select a school that can realize what students want to learn, in addition to deviation scores and school culture.
For schools as well, not only for parents but also for students, providing information that allows students to imagine their own future, such as attractive educational policies and a curriculum that is not just knowledge, will help foster the independence of students. If it is connected, it is considered that the survey results are clear.

2nd year high school Yukiha
The skill I want to acquire in high school is the communication ability that will allow me to bring the team together and grow when I become a leader. I am the class president, but I sometimes end up leaving things up to the teacher because I can’t organize my opinions well or deal with problems when they arise. Even after becoming an adult, I think I have the experience of pulling people around as a leader, so I want to be able to do it now.
