What kind of society will we live in 2030?

Presently, globalization has changed the way businesses, information, and people interact around the world.

The world community of the future will become a more interconnected web of smartphones, robots, AI, IoT technologies.

With this in mind, to help people of the future find happiness during this unprecedented change, we must confront the challenge without knowing all the answers. We hope to work with people around the world and even AI to contribute to the future happiness of the world. The ability to change the world is in our power.

Why not contribute to the happiness of the World?

It is you that creates a new history for this school and the world.

It is said, that by 2030 when you are an active member of society, professions will change significantly throughout the world. There is also a prediction that AI in Japan will replace 49% of today’s occupations.

With this societal change, is it okay to continue teaching in the style of the past? The OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) Education 2030 project aims to introduce a learning framework that co-exists with AI and provides knowledge, skills, and values needed by today’s students for tomorrows world.

At Yokohama EIRI Girls High School, we provide an education that contributes to the world creatively by acquiring the three “i’s”, and promptly responds to the challenges of the future.

There are many dilemmas facing society today. Become a woman who is confident and capable of seeking out those challenges.

At this new school opening in April 2019, the students of Yokohama EIRI Girls High School will meet the challenges of the world and the future. Let’s create a new history for the world together.

Academics in iGlobal Division

Students become women
who embrace the three “i’s” and
will contribute to the sustainable development and happiness of the world.

1. Intelligence (Academic Achievement)

A Strong Foundation in the Liberal Arts for Living in the New Era


In order to prepare young women for the world of tomorrow and the challenges of new university admissions from 2020, we have designed a high-quality education centered around a fusion of the humanities that allows understanding of humanities + science and math. In addition, students acquire the power to discover and solve problems through numerous programs, cultivate the ability to express and develop the ability to critically think, and to be successful in the world ahead of the passing of international and domestic top universities.

 

  • 3 Year Curriculum

    In a global society of the future centered around IT and AI, it is necessary to have a wide range of quality knowledge without being bound to just the humanities. iGlobal Division provides a wide-ranging education in three years. Among them, we emphasize the importance of English and mathematics, which is especially necessary for the future. We have established uniquely distinctive subjects such as “Practical English,” “Liberal Arts,” “Science English” and “mathematical exploration.” The program fosters a range of classes using proactive and interactive learning, deep active learning and general learning styles. The goal is the acquisition of a wide sphere of high-quality knowledge centered on “thinking power, judgment, and expressive power” necessary for tomorrows society.
    ※ The educational curriculum may change.

  • Deep Active Learning Style Lessons

    At EIRI Girls’ High School, the focus is on output-type classes using knowledge from diverse sources to make the best use of a limited three-year program. Students are immersed in active learning classes, which combine activities in communication between teachers and students in lecture-type courses where students can think and make judgments based on deep learning. They then reflect on the concepts, knowledge, and experience learned in during these optimized cycles. In addition to deepening the knowledge the students have gained, they can combine their academic experience and connect it with society, developed the ability to cooperate with others, and acquire the “thinking, judgment, and expression skills” required for a new university entrance exam.

  • Academic Advancement with Special Courses and Post-Assignments

    After the end-of-term exams for each semester, specialized training courses are held to students study for entrance exams. We will try to analyze the latest admissions trends, look at challenging issues with critical thinking skills, and tackle essay problems. We combine various approaches, analyze this issue multiple angles, and develop students ability to judge comprehensively as well as help guide answers. After the training, we distribute the post-assignments and promote academic development.

  • Academic Counseling for each Student

    We regularly conduct academic counseling (homeroom teacher interview) to provide thorough support for learning. Before advisement, the homeroom teacher and the teacher in charge of the subject hold a “conference (grade meeting)” based on each student’s learning situation, performance change, and career goals. By discovering each student’s strengths and weaknesses, students receive coaching points, giving them the confidence to achieve academic excellence.

2. Intercultural Communication(Global Communication Ability)

English Ability to Connect with the World x Global Communication Skills

In a future where globalization is advancing rapidly, English and intercultural communication skills are essential in a society where diverse people around the world come and travel, regardless of whether they are overseas or in Japan. With an emphasis on English language classes, students can effectively incorporate e-learning and English conversation practice, and acquire the ability to use them to connect with the world.

 

  • Aquire Four English Skills 【Practical English】
    Acquire English That Can be Used in the Shortest Amount of Time

    Within a limited three-year high school schedule, the iGlobal Division effectively develops four English skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing). After learning English grammar thoroughly, students can improve their practical skills through English composition. Students not only hear English in class but actively participate in learning, writing, and using English. Also, we use Skype every other week to converse with overseas teachers online and attend English conversation classes to learn practical English. After-school English study focuses on the English skills necessary for university entrance exams.

  • Practical English Reading / Listening
    【Lesson ("Liberal Arts / Science English") × Daily Reading】
    Various daily hours x Abundant Number of Classes with Reading · Absorbing Genuine English through Multiple Channels

    In the iGlobal Division, Students are expected to read and listen to as many English as possible every day allowing them to absorb real English and aims to improve their level. For extensive reading and listening, the “Literacy Pro LIBRARY” with over 900 books suitable for high school students on is available on their tablets. These 900 books, ranked according to English difficulty, allow students to choose a book tailored to their English skills easily. There is also an audio reading function, so they can listen and follow along with their eyes. Also, students in the Liberal Arts English/Science English classes will read prestigious magazines, such as Time and National Geographic, which helps in developing a global education.

  • English Program in the philippines Cebu【Optional】

    This one-week intensive language training program allows students to learn English in a one-on-one classroom and practice group presentations. In addition to learning English, there are also opportunities to interact with people in Cebu and to gain volunteering experience with local children. The language school campus is located in front of the sea, surrounded by nature. Besides, there is 24 hours security during the program, so students can spend time safely enjoying their overseas studies without worrying.

3. ICT & STEAM(ICT & Logical Thinking Ability, Science Literacy)

STEAM Education – Life in a Society with Advanced Technology

“Steam” education encompasses the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. In the future, the interconnection between ICT and society will be much more profound, requiring today’s students to have advanced reasoning skills centered around “computerization and data.” This type of reasoning is grounded in the thinking of mathematics, so to speak, the grammar of thought. Computer programming is the ultimate expression of logical thinking and mathematical language. During science and math education, we develop logical thinking skills in the process of programming and creating algorithms for the production of applications and robots.

 

  • Create "My Own Website" and Communicating with World Through the Web

    It is a common era to send information on its own web media. In today’s society, it’s natural to share your life with others using social media. In the iGlobal Division, students learn programming languages such as JavaScript and CSS, needed for building a site and in the creation of an individual website. In the science of information class, students learn about computers, networking, algorithms, IT and AI. The results of their activities in EIRI iGlobal STEAM Program will be shared across the web through the students own website.

  • Mathematical Development for a Deeper Exploration of Programming and Problem Solving

    The information society of the future will require basic knowledge and conceptual understanding of AI for careers in the humanities, sciences and technology fields. From the second grade of high school, students will dive into the language of Python, an integral component in AI utilization, after studying mathematical statistics, matrices and calculus. To connect these AI skills with societal needs, students contribute to the community by solving problems by utilizing ICT.

  • Creation and Development of Apps and Robots

    Knowledge and skills learned by STEAM education can be developed into various activities outside the class. It also leads to social contribution activities such as creating new applications for smartphones and creating something useful for society by operating robots and drones using programming. iGlobal Division is also a place of creation and expression. We also actively participate in scientific Olympic games etc.

  • iGlobal notebook

    Students can actively utilize the iGlobal notebook on their tablets, a digital planner, which can track students daily schedule, track their study hours, keep a record of their learning and chart overall progress. Teachers will also use this digital notebook for performance management and academic counseling.
    It will be the most influential tool students have to optimize their high school life.
