Tondabayashi Senior High School, this year marked the 114th year since its foundation in 1901. The school has been sending many great men out into the world that are actively participating in different fields within society.

We believe that the keywords of the 21st century are globalization, computerization, and diversification. To solve the problems that continue to persist in developed countries, the power that could transform tacit knowledge into explicit knowledge will be necessary in the immediate future, and it needs to spread out on a world-wide scale, as it will be the stimulus for economic activity.

From a global point of view, Tondabayashi SHS has been continuously innovative in that it aims to create global leaders. To deepen the Tondabayashi spirit, we intend to educate men of talent in literature and military sciences, giving them the needed encouragement to contribute to the world in the future, and try to find more fruitful educational activities to achieve their goals.

The motivation of the principal and the teachers together with the students will be a continuous learning process. We are hoping for continuous support and guidance from everyone.
Faculty and staff The principal and vice-principal, 65 teachers, a school nurse, three assistant teachers, an office manager, an office worker, two technical workers, 10 part-time teachers, one assistant language teacher, a school doctor, a school dentist, and a school pharmacist
