Overview, Mission and Educational Objective
In 1994, this school became one of the first to introduce integrated courses in Japan, in accordance with the policy of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology for promoting reformation of high school education. We are still one of the pioneer integrated high schools in Japan.
We research and develop integrated courses in high school which are based on career education.
Furthermore, this school has been selected as a Super-Global School to nurture a global outlook in students.
Collaboration with University
“For the leader who can make a difference in the world”
UTSS offers high quality education while developing a strong cooperation with The University of Tsukuba. We prepare students to be successful to be active lifelong learners with globally competitive skills such as a deep knowledge of social issues, communication and problem-solving skills.
Broadening the Possibilities
“Who am I? What do I want to pursue?” As a human being, all of us face these questions. These important questions cause us to think deeply about ourselves. “What is my strength? What kind of career should I pursue? What should I learn?” UTSS encourages students to be self-directed, self-regulated, independent, and autonomous learners.
UTSS offers many “Dramatic experiences”. Tree lined street, integrated study, club activities, school events, university-level class, school trips, overseas fieldwork, interaction with people from diverse backgrounds―every single experience at UTSS will challenge you intellectually.
