 Because the whole school aims for a zero-bullying environment, the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology gave us a letter of thanks for its measures against bullying. The students' association made 5 rules to eliminate bullying, and to make it better. All students try to obey the regulations.

 The teachers incorporate "manabiai(学び合い)" which is a cooperative learning activity into their lessons for the students' full understanding.
