●Message from the Principal

Welcome to the Onomichi Higashi High School English Page.

I am happy to announce the opening of our new English page created by ESS members after spending a lot of time of planning, writing, and preparing data and photos, etc.
Onomichi Higashi High School, with 110 years of history, has the motto of "Act independently and become self-organized." To succeed at this motto, students are enjoying every single moment at school, devoted to classes, club activities, and lots of school events.

We have provided various classes in our curriculum, particularly focusing on English Education and also Inquiry-Based Learning including domestic and overseas fieldwork. It would be great to introduce what we do to not only Japanese friends but also to people outside Japan.

Please enjoy the up-coming news from ESS members.

With the support of teachers, parents, and a lot of people in the community, students at Onomichi Higashi High School have been continuing to challenge themselves to realize their great future.
