School History

Izumigaoka Senior High School
's roots date back to the Meiji period.
Before World War ll
Japan's school system was very different from today. Five years of junior high
school education was provided for chosen students and high school education roughly corresponded
to today's college education. In 1893 Izumigaoka, initially named
Ishikawa Prefectural Jinjo Junior High
School
, was founded as one of such junior high schools.
After World War ll there was a major reform in the educational system. In 1948 the school bacame
Ishikawa Prefectural Kanazawa Dai-ichi Senior High School, which provided general course education
for boys. In 1949 the school name was again changed to
Kanazawa Izumigaoka Senior High School and
co
-education started, offering general, commercial, and home economics courses. The last two were
abolished some years later and then math and science course was added in 1968.
In 1993 Izumigaoka celebrated the 100th anniversary of its foundation as
Jinjo Junior High School
and in 2008 the 60th anniversary as a senior high school.
