Midsummer Issue (Jul.)


Enhancing unified education

Preparations being steadily advanced for new expansion of affiliated and associated schools

In order to advance unified education through partnerships with high school education and junior high school education, Waseda University is working to enhance affiliated and associated schools, and to strengthen relationships with such schools.
In addition to the list of current affiliated and associated schools (shown below), new expansion to the following 3 schools is scheduled for April of 2010.
Preparations are being steadily advanced with each school and explanatory meetings are being held in order.

We will establish the first junior high school department at any of the affiliated schools of Waseda University (application for approval of establishment is currently pending). We are planning to assign 120 students to each grade, and small-group education will be conducted with 30 students assigned to each class. Also, through cooperation with Waseda University Senior High School, we are preparing a suitable curriculum for unified education through junior high school and high school. Furthermore, in conjunction with this new beginning, we are also advancing the construction of a new school building (scheduled for completion in spring of 2010).

This is a new associated school offering integrated study for male and female students. The school will be opened in Karatsu City, Saga Prefecture, which is the birthplace of Okuma Shigenobu. Under the goal of "developing leaders in Karatsu City who will contribute to the world", a variety of systems are being constructed including the development of comprehensive and interdisciplinary skills, international exchange, and exchange with the local community. At the time of opening, each grade of the junior high school will hold 120 students and the high school will also hold 120 students. However, after 3 years, the high school will hold a total of 240 students, composed of internal graduates from the junior high school and from students who directly entered the high school. We are working to complete the school building by the end of January 2010 and the student dormitory (Yataro Hall) by the middle of February.

School clothes and uniforms are the change to an associated and integrated school

Continuing from its change to an associated school in April of last year, the school will start integrated education for male and female students from next year. The school will inherit the philosophy of emphasizing the education of women, an idea that Waseda University has held since long ago. The school shall seek to develop students who will support a society in which men and women can participate together. Currently, in addition to construction and repair of school buildings, construction is being performed for a student dormitory that will allow students from all over the country to spend their school lifestyle in peace of mind (construction scheduled for completion in spring of 2010).
