Middle School and High School:
A Time of Exploration and Preparation
Middle School and High School naturally are times of great changes and emerging maturity for students. This makes it the perfect time for exposure to a wider range of subjects, skills, and experiences. Here at CHIST, our secondary school students are provided with a range of meaningful opportunities to explore and express their strengths through a curriculum that is, importantly, both global minded and student-centered. Our commitment to global mindedness honors the international outlook of our school community, emphasizing the cultivation of communication skills and international perspectives in English and Japanese, as well as other subjects including design, math, science, physical education and music. Our commitment to a student-centered curriculum motivates our emphasis on developing each student’s awareness of and management of his or her own learning process. Encouraging students to be mindful of their own learning, as well as their own thoughts and emotions, empowers their growing awareness of themselves and their world, and guides them to make good decisions.

Preparing for a Global Future
We are preparing our students for a future we cannot wholly imagine and for jobs and career trajectories that do not even exist yet. Promoting global engagement, bilingualism, and cross-cultural understanding, our college preparatory curriculum builds on the global contexts first introduced and developed in the earlier grades. Where younger students asked, “Who are we?” older students will delve more deeply into identities and relationships and how they interact with the real world. Where younger students asked, “How do we organize ourselves?” older students will define globalization and sustainability in ways that elucidate which approaches to globalization may prove most sustainable. We continually invite our students to reflect on local, national and global communities, encouraging them to consider their current and future places in the world as well as how they might make the world a better place.






Community Service
CHIST students are expected to extend their classroom learning into the community with service-based activities. Each student is charged with reflecting upon both what learning insights to apply to community service, and what form that service should take. The school will publish and promote suggested community service activities and field trips throughout the year, but it is up each student to decide what he or she wants to do. These activities should cultivate each student’s awareness of injustices and unmet needs, while bringing students, faculty and staff together to create lasting and helpful partnerships the wider community. Community service is required for CHIST middle school and high school students, and each term each student must prepare a portfolio documenting his or her service journey with written reflections and photographs.
