English Introduction

         Toyotama High School is a public senior high school located in Suginami ward in western central Tokyo. The closest station, Hamadayama Station, is only 15 minutes from Shibuya and 10 minutes from Kichijoji on the Keio Inokashira Line. Toyotama HS is settled in a quiet suburban area just on the edge of the bustling center of Tokyo. Toyotama HS was founded in 1940 and is a highly regarded school with a rich history. Students and teachers can enjoy the lush greenery and nature that surrounds the 39,000 square meter campus through all 4 seasons. The campus also includes 2 fields for sports activities, a 2-story auditorium and an observatory.
         Toyotama HS is designated by the Tokyo Board of Education as a high academic college prep school with over 90% of students going on to higher education at universities across the country after graduation. Under their teachers’ guidance, students are raised to be highly independent with a strong sense of self-discipline and freedom. Students are encouraged to be curious, pro-active, tough, kind, and helpful. Every year, students demonstrate these traits through an outdoor geography research study which they complete autonomously. They are also encouraged to express themselves freely through wearing their own clothing rather than uniforms. Toyotama aims to produce future leaders and contributors to a peaceful and democratic society.
         Students at Toyotama HS are highly motivated and active individuals outside of class too. The school offers 17 different sports clubs including baseball, basketball, soccer, handball, volleyball, dance, swimming, kendo and more. Over 95% of students are active in one or more clubs. There are also 15 cultural clubs including art club, fashion club, tea ceremony, and music club. Throughout the year, students, teachers and parents also enjoy school hosted events such as culture and chorus festivals and sports meets and tournaments. 
         Toyotama HS graduates leave their school armed with the knowledge and experience necessary to compete in today’s fast paced and ever changing society. Graduates can be found in all fields of work from politics to music. Some of Toyotama HS’s most famous graduates are world renowned animator, Hayao Miyazaki and nationally revered poet, Shuntaro Tanikawa. These creative minds were first nurtured and cultivated in the welcoming, challenging, and open environment at Toyotama HS. Toyotama HS is a place where students can find themselves and choose their own paths while being guided by the dedicated and experienced teachers who support them.
