NARUTO SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL [ENGLISH]
The new schoolhouse was completed in March, 2001.
Naruto Senior High School was founded as Muya Junior High School in August, 1908. The name "Muya"
changed to"Naruto" in 1948 and our school was renamed to "Tokushima Prefectural Naruto Senior High School"
Naruto City is located in the northeast region of Tokushima Prefecture and is opposite to Awajishima over
the Naruto Strait.
With over 1,000 students, Naruto Senior High School is currently one of the schools with the largest number of
students in Tokushima Prefecture.
Consequently, Naruto High School also offers the most club activities for students.
Due to Naruto High School's convenient location in Naruto City, nearly 80% of students travel to school by bike.
The school offers courses for both full-time and part-time students in the field of general education.
The schoolhouse and the gym were both designated as a disaster prevention base in the event of an earthquake or
tsunami, due to the size and stability of the structures.
It is a monument made in commemoration of the 100th anniversary and was established in 2006.
This monument was built by the graduates' contribution.

Mr. Nakahara used to work as the fourth principal at Naruto Senior High School. Many of the students had great respect for him and as a good gesture many of the students made donations for the creation of his monument at Naruto Senior High School.
Naruto is famous for a whirling current. Therefore, the design of the whirling current was chosen as our school badge
because such a concise, straightforward and vigorous design is suitable for our school.
"To foster SINCERITY, INDUSTRY, SIMPLICITY, and STURDINESS"
It is reported that the words "sincerity and industry" were established by the first principal, Mr. Shinichiro Sato
and "simplicity and sturdiness" by the fourth principal, Mr. Usaburo Nakahara.
