Tokyo Tech High School of Science and Technology is the only national high school of science and technology in Japan, and is affiliated with Tokyo Institute of Technology. The school is a co-educational high school (grades 10 - 12) with approximately 600 students, and is located in the central area of Tokyo, by Tamachi Station (JR Yamanote Line).
Tokyo Tech High School fosters students with fundamental academic skills, practical abilities, international perspectives, knowledge and civilities necessary as members of society, and also nurtures students’ independence and creativity so that they can contribute to society with comprehensive scientific and technical perspectives.
Special Features of Tokyo Tech High School
Tokyo Tech High School offers advanced science and technology education that is linked from high school to university. As a high school associated with a national university, we have a mission to conduct research on education, looking toward the future.
As a Super Science High School (SSH) designated by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) since 2002, we aim to nurture “human resources in science and technology who will be internationally active”. In addition, we nurture “global technical leaders specialized in science and technology” as part of the Super Global High School (SGH) network starting in 2021. We offer high school education with the objective of fostering human resources who will collaborate to build the world’s science and technology in the 21st century.
Collaboration with Tokyo Institute of Technology
In collaboration with Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech), we conduct research on science and engineering education. As the only science and technology high school affiliated with a national university, we offer advanced education and have classes taught by Tokyo Tech faculty. In addition, Tokyo Tech faculty members offer advice and feedback at the Grade 12 project study presentations.
Fields of Specialization
Tokyo Tech High School has five fields of specialization: Applied Chemistry, Information Systems, Mechanical Systems Engineering, Electrical and Electronics, and Architectural Design. Students study general subjects in Grade 10, and divide into these fields of specialization in Grade 11. Students conduct full-scale experiments and lab work, and acquire in-depth knowledge and skills in their specific field, which are not possible at regular high schools.
Tokyo Tech High School has an Agreement for Cooperation with De La Salle University Integrated School in the Philippines, and the two schools conduct annual international exchange. Due to COVID-19, since 2020, the exchange has been upgraded to an online joint research program. We have also conducted joint project studies with and/or study trips to the United States, Thailand, People’s Republic of China, and Taiwan.. Furthermore, we have actively participated and have received awards in many international fairs, including the International Student Science Fair, Singapore International Mathematics Challenge, the Korea Science Academy Science Fair, the Thailand-Japan Student Science Fair, and the Thailand International Science Fair. We will continue to proactively participate in international exchanges, fairs, competitions and joint projects.
