History

Tokyo Metropolitan Daiyon Girls High School was established in 1908. In 1950, it was renamed Tokyo Metropolitan Minamitama Senior High School and became coeducational. In 2010, after more than 100 years, it became a secondary education school, which carries out middle and high level education, called Tokyo Metropolitan Minamitama Secondary Education School.
 

Education

Our aim is to foster leaders who are active in various fields of the international community by nurturing the human power born from the harmony of mind, knowledge and body. We all watch the growth of each student and support the fulfillment of every student's dream.
The pillars of our education are field work activities which foster curiosity. From first to third grade, students conduct experiments and investigations focusing on the local region. Then, after visiting university laboratories and developing their own hypotheses, they conduct scientific verification activities. In 4th grade, each student participates in a seminar and finds the challenges leading to the future and sets his or her own theme. Each student finishes an essay of 4,000 letters by the end of 5th grade and continues learning to think logically and creatively.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Board of Education has designated our school as a science and math innovation school and an English education promotion school. The board has also decided to designate our school as an Intellectual Inquiry Innovator Promotion School. We set various learning periods such as collaboration with universities and research institutions. We promote education to train comprehensive value creation skills, and make it possible for students to realize their course.
 

Intellectual Inquiry Innovator Promotion School (2017-2020)

Amidst a rapidly changing society in which globalization makes the world familiar and information technology and artificial intelligence are developing at remarkable speeds, what are the skills and qualities that are needed in the future? --- The ability to resolve challenging problems with no fixed answers through cooperating with diverse groups of people. The ability to discover problems themselves, create answers, and create new value. The ability to see the essence of things. The ability to form a better society. These abilities are the qualities necessary for students to be successful in the future, and that requires exploration activity. Our school was designated as a promotion school for this activity. We will nurture future leaders who can be active in various fields and organizations of the international community.
