period, cleaning and a short Homeroom meeting included). On the alternative
weeks, the students attend school on Saturdays but leave at 12:55PM.
After school, most of the students join activities of sports (baseball,
basketball, volleyball, soccer, tennis, track and field, Judo, Kendo,
Japanese archery, etc.) or cultural (orchestra, drama, broadcasting,
English conversation, fine arts, computer, Japanese harp, tea ceremony,

their clubs in July and concentrate on the preparation for college
