In the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program, she is studying subjects such as English, geography, and music at an advanced level. We are working on various issues. During last year’s summer vacation, I was selected as a dispatch student from an international high school and visited the University of London and the University of Cambridge in England. Based on his experience as head of the brass band club in junior high school, he has further expanded his range of activities in high school, demonstrating leadership and positivity both on and off campus.
She has a strong attachment to Kikigaki Koshien, and when it was decided that she would participate, she said, “I have to give it my all because I will be letting people know about the value of the work and lives of the masters I interviewed through the work I created.” ”, and in his heart he made a promise to himself to face this activity without compromise. It is expected that her sense of responsibility, curious and positive personality will lead to great results not only in her high school life, but also in her activities after entering university and in her future work, and that she will make great strides on the global stage. .
The International High School, which opened in Nisshin City, Aichi Prefecture in September 2022, provides an environment where students with diverse experiences from Japan and abroad can learn together, with the aim of developing world-class leaders.

《Characteristics of International High School》
Kokusai High School is a coeducational boarding school (boarding school). We accept a wide range of students from Japan and overseas, and practice leadership education from an early stage in a highly diverse environment. We will realize world-class leadership education in the fully equipped and natural environment newly built on the campus of Nagoya University of Commerce, which has a vast campus of approximately 740,000 square meters.
《Characteristics of education》
Incorporating the “case method,” a leader education method practiced at the world’s top academic institutions such as Harvard University, we cultivate not only academic ability but also leadership that can be used in the international community. Classes are held in small groups of no more than 25 students, and are taught by multinational faculty members, all of whom have master’s or doctoral degrees, and professors from affiliated business schools. In addition, we will hold a summer school for prospective students and a bridging program (April to June) as a preparatory course for admission.
《Boarding education》
We provide co-educational boarding school education based on international boarding school operating standards. House Supervisors, who are well-versed in psychological and health management, provide daily life support and regular interviews, providing optimal support and guidance to each student. By living together with peers of the same generation who have different cultures and experiences, we cultivate the understanding of diversity, cooperativeness,
sociability, and discipline required of next-generation leaders. 《School Overview》
