About “4 skills”

Investigative academic ability

Skills to independently discover issues
In today’s increasingly international and data-based society, where the need for SDGs (sustainable development goals) has been proven to be highly beneficial, you need to build these skills to independently discover issues effectively. You must always ponder “Why” about everything around you and then investigate the answer. Learn using an openend approach with the knowledge from your lessons as your basis. “Investigative academic ability” is a skill necessary for surviving the 21st Century which is rich in diversity.

Skills to collaboratively create

Creating new values
Kyoso means “collaborative creation” in English. It refers to collaborating with others to create new value and then sharing the results. People with these differing values can live together to build and create new ones. Gathering expansive knowledge and skills together can help form a richer society. The outcome is the skill to “collaboratively create.”

Skills to participate in society

Skills needed by the current times
From the time we are born we live in relationships with other people. These relationships help form our societies. In modern society we can connect to the world in an instant if we have the skill-set required to look at things with a broad view. You must have a global perspective when looking at and considering the local community. The current times require the skill to participate in society and have this global perspective.

Skills to achieve self-realization

Find yourself that you want to be
Everyone has something that they want to become. In order to make your aspirations a reality, you must thoroughly understand yourself and make yourself grow. Achieving your goal will help you build new goals. Self-realization refers to striving toward achieving “yourself that you want to be.” It is a skill essential for all glocal innovation leaders.

Examples of main efforts for nurturing the “ 4 skills”

● Poster sessions in the class “investigation” ● Exchange activities with overseas partner schools and sister schools ● Young Americans Workshop ● Overseas study tour ● Workshop by Shudo University teachers, “Constructing a Question” ● Creating videos on SDGs Etc.

Learning Environment

The new school building overlooking the Seto Inland Sea provides an atmosphere for learning filled with the latest equipment.

Having finished construction in July of 2018, our new, 6-story school building has all homerooms with a fine view, and students can look out over the Seto Inland Sea from the classrooms. Fully equipped with heating and cooling, the school building features a wellhole-style “study hall” in the center where students gather and learn together beyond the boundaries of school year and classes. Around here, you can find faculty rooms, the LRC (Learning Resource Center / library), advancement path resource room, multi-purpose classrooms supporting remote learning, and more. In addition to classrooms for physics, biology, and chemistry, as well as data practice classrooms supporting ICT, there is also common space that can be used as “learning commons.” All areas of the school building are equipped with Wi-Fi, enabling learning via tablets and the like. There are also extensive exercise facilities including 2 gymnasiums and 4 tennis courts.
