3.CURRICULUM

After the 1st year in the school, the students are required to choose between two areas of study: humanity and science. Most subjects are compulsory. The students may also take elective classes in the Arts, Social Studies and Science.
We have a 5-day school week in the 2nd and 4th week of every month. The school starts at 8:40 AM and usually ends at 16:30 PM (the 7th 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, etc.) clubs. Our school has had students achieve prefectural and national recognition for their effort in these clubs. Club activities play an important role in our program in the point that the students can pursue their creativity and capability as well as can promote their physical and mental health. When the students become 12th graders, they must leave their clubs in July and concentrate on the preparation for college entrance examinations.
The school also holds various events every season. The school festival in September is the biggest of all. Under the school council and committees, every student participates and performs attractions and exhibitions for a three day long celebration.
