私たちのミッションは、生徒たちを 「知識と思いやりを持ち、創造力を駆使して世界に貢献する個人」 に育てることです。 生徒たちは強い自我を育み、自己の文化、他の文化を理解し、経験の多様性を楽しめる人物へと成長します。世界におけるお互いのかかわりを認識し、多文化環境に対応できる、包容力があり創造性のある成人へと成長します。 生徒たちは自己責任の意識を持って教育活動に取り組み、自分の能力や才能に気づき、それらを伸長させて学習面・人としての成長面における自分の進む道を切り開きます。自らの努力で切り開く強さをもって進みます。 生徒たちは健康で生きがいのある生活を尊重し、個性を大切にし、知恵と忍耐力を持って苦しいことを乗り越えていきます。国際社会の一員であるという意識を広げ、人類のよりよい未来のために他者への思いやりをもったリーダーシップを発揮していきます。
