Waseda Shibuya Senior High School in Singapore (WSS) was founded in April 1991 on the west coast of Singapore. Our school provides a Japanese educational environment for Japanese residents of Singapore and other neighboring countries. In this new age of globalization and multi-national cooperation, the number of Japanese living overseas has increased. These expatriate families have struggled with the lack of Japanese senior high school options abroad. Our school was founded in order to meet their educational needs. Due to globalization, particularly the recent surge by Asian countries, Japan must collaborate with their neighbors by conducting international exchanges and exhibiting inter-cultural understanding. WSS believes this is extremely significant given the history of the region.


In April 2002, WSS became affiliated with Waseda University. This partnership resulted in the realization of a more robust educational philosophy. Our vision is to produce students who are global citizens and can contribute to Asia.





Help students develop self-awareness and independent thought
自調自考 means that each student develops self-awareness and independent thought which is the most important goal of the school. 調 means to absorb strength from the outside in order to mature. means to use one’s inner strength to mature. Both of these can only be achieved through the efforts of each individual and therefore students are asked to focus their energy accordingly. The students are impressed with the school’s core philosophy that ultimately, the road to maturity is a journey that they must navigate alone.

Teach students ethics & morality
Students must be able to differentiate between right and wrong as well as be morally sound. Additionally, it is necessary for students to feel a sense of moral outrage when they hear of evils in the world. By teaching them ethics, we are able to equip them with the tools necessary in making decisions whilst maintaining consideration towards others.

Learn to be international citizens
In this era of globalization, our third aim is to nurture our students to become global citizens through fostering cross-cultural experiences with local schools in Singapore and creating an open-minded environment within our campus. In order to be true global citizens, students must be able to tell others of their own history and culture in the global context whilst deepening their knowledge of other cultures.





High school is very important for our students. During this phase of their lives they mature physically, mentally and academically. Since they spend such an important period of their lives at Waseda Shibuya Senior High School, we take our role as educators very seriously. The school emphasizes the following three developmental objectives:

First, we work to enhance the basic physical fitness of each student. To be a whole person, physical fitness is a minimum requirement. Waseda Shibuya Senior High School offers various sporting events, clubs and gym classes for students to improve their physical fitness.

Second, we encourage our students to be virtuous. We believe that virtue is the cornerstone of personal magnetism. Therefore our goal is to produce fine, morally upright students who will help other people in need and share their joy with one another.

Third, we strive to enhance the academic ability of each student. The key to improving academically lies in how we structure our classes. Using techniques like individually-targeted teaching and proficiency grouping, our teachers are able to earn the trust of students and command respect in their classrooms.

These three objectives are the heart of Waseda Shibuya Senior High School. We feel that by pursuing these objectives, we will transform our school into one of the leading high schools in the whole Asia-Pacific region.

In 2002, Waseda Shibuya Senior High School became an affiliate of Waseda University. I hope to make this the most internationalized school of all of Waseda’s affiliations. The 18th to the 20th century was an era when societies were based on the nation-state but in the 21st century we have entered what has been called “the global society,” in which countries and their borders become meaningless. At our school, I firmly believe that we can cultivate students who have the ability and enthusiasm to become global citizens.
