聖園女学院中・高等学校

History

Misono Girls’ High School was founded in 1946 by the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart. Misono Girls’ Junior High School started in 1948. Since 1976, graduates of our junior high school are guaranteed admission to our high school.

The Campus

Misono is in Fujisawa, Kanagawa Prefecture, which is centrally located between Tokyo and Mt. Fuji. Our 8.3 hectare campus is part of a prefectural wildlife protection area and is very scenic. There are many trees and birds, and seasonal flowers are always in bloom. We have such a lovely view of Mt. Fuji that we mention it in our school song.

Misono is convenient to Yokohama and southern and western Kanagawa as it is only ten minutes from Fujisawa-Hommachi on the Odakyu Line, one stop from Fujisawa Station.

Students and Teachers

Misono Girls’ Junior and Senior High School is a small private school. We have only about 720 students combined, and with 47 full-time teachers, three of whom are Americans, and 23 part-time teachers, one of whom is a Canadian, students can receive a great deal of personal attention.

International Opportunities

Misono has a variety of international opportunities. One is our Windsor, Ontario Homestay Program. Windsor is a sister-city of Fujisawa, and every summer, approximately half of all our first-year high school students go live with Canadian families for two weeks.
Another is a British theatrical company Misono brings in to perform plays in English and conduct mini-workshops for our students.
We also have frequent guest speakers such as high-ranking foreign diplomats and experts specializing in international issues.
