Our philosophy is based upon the world-renowned tenets of Daily Life Therapy® developed by the late Dr. Kiyo Kitahara of Tokyo, Japan. This method provides children with systematic education through group dynamics, the intermingling of academics, technology, art, music and physical education. The goal of this educational approach is for individuals to achieve social independence, dignity, and to benefit from and contribute to society. Our Daily Life Therapy® Guidelines Book is used to give an in depth look into what makes Higashi what it is. You can use this resource to learn more about our goals, annual calendar, school policies and more.
