About Unebi

Unebi High School was established in 1896 and the main building, which still stands today, was erected in 1933 and has been designated as a tangible cultural asset since 2012. A ceremony celebrating the school’s 110th anniversary was held in 2006.
Here at Unebi we have 3 main buildings which are all equipped with modern facilities. The traditional Main Building, the school hall, and the Alumni Association Hall. The school hall (Bunka-Sozo Hall) was founded in 1996 in commemoration of the school’s 100th anniversary.
The Alumni Association Hall is an area where students can come together and meet with other club members. In addition, we also have a 50 meter swimming pool, a gymnasium, a library housing over 50,000 books and a training room for traditional Kakugi (martial arts), such as Judo and Kendo.
Our school is a high-ranked school in terms of its educational offerings and its graduates have numbered approximately 36,000, many of whom have been successful in various fields of society.

School Emblem

Our school emblem is designed around the figures of the golden black kite which spreads its wings to fly in the sky and the oak tree that sets its roots in the ground. The figure of the golden black kite represents an ideal of young people and their development. Oak trees have grown close together around Yamato Sanzan (the three mountains of Yamato in Nara Prefecture) for a long time and are deeply ingrained into people's lives. The people express their appreciation for their precious and rich land to the leaves of the oak trees.

School Motto

Our school motto was established on the 10th anniversary of the foundation in 1906.
The motto contains four sets of two-character idioms.
 ・Sincerity
 ・The highest good
 ・Perseverance
 ・Exertion
People with sincerity can attain the highest good if they practice exertion and perseverance.

Super Global High School (SGH)
