Kansai University Dai-ichi Senior High School/Dai-ichi Junior High School

  Kansai University Dai-Ichi Senior High School and Dai-Ichi Junior High School, formerly known as Kansai Koshu Gakko, aim at developing and nurturing both the mental and physical health of their students. The Dai-Ichi Senior High School opened in April 1948, and has a full-time comprehensive course that requires three years of study, consisting of ten classes each year. We provide a flexible curriculum including classes held in conjunction with Kansai University, an optional study abroad program in Oregon, USA, and a school festival, "Kanichi-Sai, " which develop students' curiosity, personal abilities, and autonomy.

  The Dai-Ichi Junior High School was opened in April 1947 as a compulsory education school. This school also offers three years of education, six classes each year. In an educational environment leading to Kansai University Dai-Ichi Senior High School and Kansai University, we provide classes jointly with the University which assist students in choosing their future career paths as early as possible. In addition, we provide other unique classes such as environmental studies, and overnight experiential excursions. Over ninety percent of our students participate in club activities and spend a significant amount of time interacting with many different age groups. Both schools have educational policies of:

1. Respect for the unlimited capabilities of youth and for enlightening students to bring out their potential, 2. Pursuit of the true happiness of students, and 3. Nurturing individuals who are enterprising, ready to observe discipline, and cooperative and self-governing, with an emphasis on justice and honesty.

  Both were boy's schools except for a certain period in the postwar years, but the Dai-Ichi Junior High School became coeducational in April 1995 and the Dai-Ichi Senior High School did so in April 1998.
