History of the Sakura High School


 The History of Sakura High School, which is one of the oldest high schools in Chiba prefecture, dates back to 1792 during the Edo period when Masaari Hotta, Liege Lord the Sakura Clan founded a clan school, called Hanko or Gakumonjo in Japanese.

 In 1899, the clan school was transferred to Chiba Prefectural Government and relocated to the present location in 1910. At that time, the Last Liege Lord, Masatomo Hotta financed the purchase of the school grounds and building, establishing the Honkan building (present-day Memorial Hall) and the auditorium. The completion was celebrated on November 10, 1910, so this day is designated as the anniversary of its founding.

 Memorial Hall is a two-story wooden building, with basement stones placed on a brick foundation, and covered by German-style wood siding, and double-hung windows. This building was used until as a new-system high school building was open.

 In 2005(Heisei 17), the Memorial Hall was registered by the national government as a Registered “Tangible Cultural Property”. From 2009 to 2010(Heisei21-22), repair and restoration work was done on the basement, floors and walls. Today, the building’s rooms are used as a principal’s room, a reception room, a school office, a school nurse’s office and a sickroom.

 Sakura High School has produced more than 27,000 graduates so far with a reputation for being high education center in the north-eastern part of Chiba prefecture. Most of the graduates have played an active part not only in Japan but all over the world.

 In 2013, Sakura High School was designated as a Super Science High School (SSH) by the Japan Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. Also, it was as well as appointed as a Super Global High School (SGH) in 2016.

 In the curriculum of SSH, we provide students with a real science program called ‘Sakura Active Class’ supported by some universities and research agencies in order to foster future scientists.

 In the curriculum of SGH, we develop global leaders capable of communicating and taking action in the world with an awareness of the global-scale social and economic problems we face today.


 We continue to make history as a leading prefectural high school in Chiba.
