In April of 2010, our school was restructured from “Okayama Prefectural Okayama Daianji Senior High School” to “Okayama Prefectural Okayama Daianji Secondary School.” Although our grade levels expanded from 10th through 12th grade to 7th through 12th grade, our school motto of “shiteidougyou,” which means “teacher and student moving together towards the same goal,” remains the same. For this reason, our school continues to use the previous name: Okayama Daianji.
In keeping with our desire to carry on and strengthen the spirit of “shiteidougyou” at our school, we have kept the cherry blossom motif of the previous school symbol and added the initial “D” from Daianji to form our current school symbol.
Through their time at our school we hope to cultivate students who:
1. Set high goals for their future and have the motivation to realize those goals
2. Contribute to society actively out of a respect for themselves and others
3. Have the education, character, and autonomy to thrive in international society
- We are a six year combined lower and upper secondary school.
- We stress experiential learning to ready students for future challenges.
- We prepare our students for entry into top, competitive universities.
Our third year students participate in a two-week overseas study program in Australia where they participate in a homestay, study at a local language school and have opportunities to interact with local people through workplace visits and more.
