of the school
@Our school was founded 98 years ago. It is the only blind school in this
prefecture. We teach students ranging from more than 50 years old in our
high school department to as young as 3 years old in our childrenfs department.
At our school, gWe bring up students with happy hearts and healthy minds,
and provide education that focus on social independence.h We provide careful
guidance and conform to education guidelines. We also take great care in
accommodating to the special needs and personality of each individual student.
1.Taking into consideration the unique personality and ability of each
student, we broadly assess their future possibilities.
2.We emphasize two general educational values: vocational education
and the improvement of scholarship.
3.Furthermore, through daily activities and workshops, we provide the
skills and knowledge necessary to achieve social independence, such as cooking,
home keeping, etc.
4.Lastly, we try to instill the basic habits and behaviors to create
students rich in human nature and strong in character.
In 1994, we established a vision-impaired education consultation
room. We distributed pamphlets to the medical institutions, and schools from elementary
to senior high school throughout the cities and towns of Yamanashi Prefecture. We
also carry out periodical consultations in and outside of our school in order
to help children troubled with sight disorders. Our school also has a rehabilitation
department and provides employment guidance to people who are or have become
half-way handicapped as well as providing employment guidance to post-graduates.
We are working towards the goal of becoming the top educational center of Japan for the visually impaired.
@ve look forward to any comments or
suggestions. We want to improve and provide the best possible education and
services to our students.
@We wait for your opinions and ideas after viewing this homepage.
