Greetings from the Principal, Naoki Yozo
Aino Agricultural High School is a small agricultural High School based on the spirit of Christianity and a three-love spirit of "love God, people, and the earth." This three love spirit is personality education by learning the Bible and worship, it is about putting emphasis on agricultural education to think about soil making centered on organic farming and communal living with a boarding system. Of course, the three love spirits do not force the students to have faith. Thoughts and Faith must be freely chosen. We hope students learn through worship the meaning and the reason why our school has been built. We want the students to know the reason and the spirit we cherish. Students gather from all over Japan and from abroad. We cooperate with each other on this hill, learn together, build friendship and feelings of gratitude.
