Even if you survive the academic competition in Japan, it does not guarantee success in this world, during these fast-paced times.
Arm yourself with the necessary knowledge and skills to be active on the world stage.
Eisugakkan has implemented an English immersion program at the junior high school. In an environment where students are immersed in English, from mathematics, science, social studies, and art to homerooms, each student naturally learns to think in English and express themselves in English. The school life is like studying abroad even though they are in Japan.
Students who can barely understand what the teacher is saying at first will be able to understand most of what the teacher is saying after six months and will actively participate in the class.
For students who want to learn and master English from junior high school, our bilingual teachers provide solid support based on the theory of second language acquisition so that even beginners can learn English quickly and steadily.
We also offer classes for returnees and other students who have studied English in earnest from an early age.
Inquiry-based IB curriculum
The inquiry-based learning that the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology is now promoting is said to be modeled after the IB curriculum.
For example, in an Arts class, Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece, "The Last Supper was analyzed. Questions such as "what is the background of this painting?", "What influence did this painting have on subsequent paintings?", "Who decided that it was a masterpiece?", "Will it still be a masterpiece 100 years from now?" were tackled on a lively exchange of ideas.
In an IB school, students do their own research on questions that do not have clear answers, think for themselves, discuss and deepen their ideas with other students, get feedback through presentations, and then think for themselves again. Through this proactive and inquiring process, students learn how to approach unanswerable questions, look at themselves objectively, and know themselves through dialogue.
Eisugakkan has professional and unique teachers from all over the world (18 teachers from 5 countries). The school also has many experienced Japanese teachers who work together with foreign teachers to create an international educational environment.
It is a day-to-day challenge for teachers to draw out the students' ideas and facilitate new thinking. At the same time, the high school students are faced with a pile of university-like tasks such as writing papers and presentations for the universal test of the diploma program.
We work together with motivated students who are not just aiming to go to universities, but also trying to create their own future. Rather than being happy or sad about a single result, our teachers continue to work hard together so that students can continue to strive without forgetting their goals and dreams.
Dormitory life, lifelong friendship
Eisugakkan has both boys' and girls' dormitories. Dormitory life provides students the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in inquiry-based learning, which is the core of International Baccalaureate education.
Living in the dormitory, you will be able to form bonds with your seniors and juniors, work together on assignments, and sometimes even discuss adolescent problems with them, creating lifelong friendships with deeply shared values.You will be able to experience relationships that transcend generations, bonds that you will cherish even later in life.
Students can return home to their parents on weekends as well as during long vacations. Unlike studying abroad, communication with your family will be maintained at an appropriate distance in case of family events or when you feel homesick.
Eisugakkan is an International Baccalaureate (IB) accredited school, which is still rare in Japan. However, if you obtain the Diploma Programme (DP) Certificate at Eisugakkan, it is no exaggeration to say that you are now qualified to apply to about 5,000 IB universities around the world (as of June 2020).
Through the International Baccalaureate, students who have deepened their exploration of what they are passionate about and what they are good at go on to further their interests at top-ranked universities and institutions around the world.

School fees at Eisugakkan are approximately one million yen per year (paid in three installments per year). The monthly cost of living in the dormitory is approximately 70,000 yen, including meals. (*According to the data of 2020)
With no need for the additional cost and time for cram schools and English conversation classes, students can spend their irreplaceable adolescent years on inquiry-based learning and extracurricular activities to their heart's content.
