Developing individuality and expanding potential

The six years at primary school are the most formative period of a person's life. The educational program at the Primary School Attached to Seitoku University is built on the three pillars of good manners, academic subjects, and comprehensive learning, all based on the "spirit of harmony" and conducted in accordance with the positive psychological growth of children. Group activities help students form personal relationships, nurturing a humanistic and cooperative spirit that emphasizes respect for each student's individuality.
   Education at the primary school begins with the selection and development of materials suited to each child, based on his or her individual talents. The multifaceted program teaches students to think for themselves as well as communicate with one another during the process of reaching a decision that incorporates the ideas of everyone. Workspaces for special events and assemblies also encourage comprehensive learning, promoting the thinking process outside the classroom. Our program stresses the ability to think rather than to pursue rote memorization, all taking into consideration the talents of the individual child. Assessment of abilities incorporates a wide range of measures, including the willingness to learn, independence, judgment and self-expression.

Education to instill good manners
A class in good manners, taught in the Ogasawara style, is conducted once a week at the primary school, nurturing in children gentle hearts filled with consideration and attention to propriety.

Academic Subjects
Ten minutes are reserved every morning for silent reading, reading aloud and arithmetic, building a foundation for improved academic achievement. Also, preparatory studies and course-specific lessons are provided with a view to advancing the students to junior high school. In this way students learn to advance toward their goals by their own efforts.

A curriculum for both the international and the IT society
We provide many opportunities for practical learning of foreign languages and computer skills. English conversation classes taught by native English speakers emphasize listening and speaking, and IT classes teach children how to operate computers.
