Obuchi Elementary School boasts its sturdy pillars in the exceptional village
of Rokkasho located at Shimokita Peninsula, Aomori Prefecture in Northern
Japan. Obuchi ES, as the village's elementary school,is situated amidst
an alluring environment where international science and technology facilities
harmoniously coexist with majestic bodies of water such as lakes, rivers,
and ocean. Rokkasho International School(RIS),an international school run on
a commission by the Aomori Prefectural Government, stands next to Obuchi
ES. The brotherly bond between the two schools heightens both the Japanese
and international students' exposure as they exchange various cultures
The village's ardent desire to promote quality education has been evident through the continuous improvement of the school facilities, specifically by gearing all classrooms with air – conditioning units and individual lockers for students' convenience, upgrading information and communications technology (ICT) equipment to enrich the students' 21st century skills, administering examinations to assess students' academic growth, providing assistance to students taking examinations (e. g. language proficiency tests, etc.), and committing a number of school buses to accommodate the students' transportation needs.
English language education, on the other hand, has been improved by appointing an assiduous native Assistant Language Teacher ALT who, by his rich educational background and expertise, catalyzes the students' interest and capacity to communicate and be globally competitive.
Currently, 213 Japanese students, 21 faculty and staff, and 4 international school students strive together in creating a unique learning environment that upholds the principle: "Working Together as One "
