Tokyo Metropolitan Itsukaichi High School
 
Principal: Takehiro TAMOGAMI
Students: ~400 Students
Ages: 15-18 years old
 
History
              Tokyo Metropolitan Itsukaichi High School was established in 1948 as the first   high school near the Akigawa river to open after World War2 At this time, Itsukaichi High School was only a “part-time program” with day and night sessions. In 1950, the school changed the part-time day section into a full-time program, while maintaining a part-time night school. This full-time day program, and part-time night school, are still in existence today.
 
Educational Goal
              Our aim is to create leaders who demonstrate sound judgement, diligence, and good-will towards others in any career path. First years follow a regular course schedule; however, from second to third grade, students may take classes in one of three courses: the management course, the outdoor course, and the advance course. Each course offers students a particular path to their chosen careers, emphasizing communication skills and other practical knowledge and abilities.
              The size of the school, while small, offers students a more detailed and accessible instruction. With a total of 400 students, our usual classes consist of about  40 students. Although, in the case of our Japanese, English, and mathematics classes, two classes are divided into thirds to not exceed 30 students. This allows each student to receive a more personal education, tailored to their individual needs.
              In 2018, the Tokyo Metropolitan Board of Education promoted Itsukaichi High School to a higher level of learning, which continues to promote an education that includes an active participation in learning the communication skills necessary for international cooperation.

Many people today are forced to live in urban, artificial spaces.
