To be a woman who is widely trusted and useful in society
The school corporation Takagi Gakuen, which is the parent body of Eiri Girls’ High School, was founded in 1908 by a woman named Kimi Takagi who was impressed by Yukichi Fukuzawa (the founder of Keio University) during the Meiji period.
Resonating with Professor Fukuzawa’s idea of “independence and self-respect,” Mrs. Takagi devoted herself to creating a place where women could learn and build a foundation for active social participation.
We provide an education that nurtures women trusted by society and who are actually useful to society.
More than 110 years after its foundation, the school’s name was changed to Eiri Girls’ High School. Even now, the school values the educational philosophy of its founder, Mrs. Takagi, and continues to produce women who are trusted and useful in society.
About the Founder, Mrs. Takagi
Our school was established about 110 years ago by the female founder, Mrs. Takagi, with the aim of enabling women to acquire knowledge and play an active role in society. After 110 years, the founder’s educational philosophy has become more and more important. As a school that nurtures women who will be useful to society in the future, our school strives to nurture women who are required by the times and society.
