Ichigao High School aims to present lessons in a simple, clear manner that helps to develop each students' individuality.

Ichigao does not offer rigid courses covering only arts or science, final year students here are free to choose the best class for their future career plans from a variety of different subjects.

First and second years are taught a balanced curriculum balanced around culture, science and the arts. However, final year students are allowed to choose around half the subjects so that they can tailor there learning to be anything from career centred to based around their own tastes and interests.

There are also volunteer classes held after school and in the holidays for those students wishing to further their study.

Ichigao High school is also known for its wealth of clubs and committees.

The main school events are the welcome party in April, the School trip in May, the white crane festival in September (a combination of the schools' cultural and sports festivals). Apart from this there are an abundance of other events such as ball game contests, Art contests and the graduation ceremony.

Whatever the event, it is student committee and the students themselves who are the heart of both planning and execution.
