NARUTO SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL [ENGLISH]
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" in 1956.
Naruto City is located in the northeast region of Tokushima Prefecture and is opposite Awajishima across from the Naruto Strait.
With over 800 students, Naruto Senior High School is currently one of the largest schools in Tokushima Prefecture.
Consequently, Naruto High School also offers the most club activities for students.
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 erected in 2006.
This monument was built by alumni contributions.
Mr. Nakahara worked 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 whirlpools . Therefore, the design of a whirlpool was chosen as our school badge because such a concise, straightforward and vigorous design represents our school.
"To foster SINCERITY, INDUSTRY, SIMPLICITY, and VIGOR"
It is reported that the words "sincerity and industry" were established by the first principal, Mr. Shinichiro Sato and "simplicity and vigor" by the fourth principal, Mr. Usaburo Nakahara.
