Introduction of Ogaki-yoro High school

With the amalgamation of two high schools, Ogaki Agricultural High School and Yoro Girls' Commercial High School, Ogaki-yoro High School was newly established in 2005. Ogaki Agricultural High School was established in 1922 and has more than 80 years history. It was the only agricultural high school in Seino district in Gifu Prefecture. Yoro Girls' Commercial High School was established in 1948 and emphasized business education for girls. In order to make the most of these two characters, the new school was founded as "A school which aims to educate students to become capable persons who are compatible with the times as well as useful to the regional community".
 After the amalgamation in 2005, students could choose between two programs of study: Comprehensive and Agricultural. The Comprehensive faculty has three classes for each year level, which means there are nine classes in total. The Agricultural faculty also has a total 9 classes. (Students study in high school for three years in Japan.)
