Chairman of the Board Kiyomi Tanaka
We all must rely upon one another. So, it is my hope that we will teach our students to be accepting and kind toward others. To make this happen, we must instill in our students the fundamentals of life. A major focus of our instruction is on the following four principles: greetings, punctuality, refinement and appreciation. If they fail to learn these, they will become a burden on society, not even being able to communicate efficiently.
A good educational environment is particularly important for students. So, I feel we are lucky to have such favorable surroundings here at Koryo. And, I am proud to say that our campus gives each and every student a space to be themselves. With our sprawling 24 acres, we provide students with buildings, facilities and sports grounds where they can study comfortably as well as progress in their club activities. We are continuously striving to improve, constantly keeping an eye on the changes that are affecting society, and our students’ needs. We moved to this new campus in Numata 41 years ago. We began accepting girls into our all boys’ school 16 years ago, thus becoming a co-educational institution. We have just updated our school uniform, which is certain to boost school pride. Our students must learn and internalize many life lessons. Therefore, at present we have a sister school relationship with Tinian Junior-Senior High School in the American Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. In order to increase our students’ opportunities, we are also currently seeking another sister school from an English-speaking country. Through our diverse programs, we hope our students will develop various ways to grow their future dreams over their three year here.
