SGH Program Mission Statement
The objective of a Super Global High School is to offer secondary education that provides students with a deep appreciation of social issues as well as the communication and problem-solving skills necessary to serve as global leaders on the international stage.
Educational institutions that serve as Super Global High Schools present their students with global role models for them to emulate, and work in coordination with universities both in Japan and around the world, that are promoting internationalization to develop tie-ins with private enterprise, international agencies, and other organizations. Students can develop a comprehensive, multidisciplinary curriculum that incorporates research on issues affecting the global community and international business.
In their studies, the students themselves must face the challenge of gaining hands-on experience by conducting fieldwork both in Japan and overseas on a number of research subjects.
