Hello All!

Japanese Junior High Schools
I have been working in Japanese junior high schools for two years, going on
three. I have seen quite a few junior high schools, because my job requires
that I switch schools every three months. Using my experiences and
observations of 6 junior high schools, I will try to shed some light on
Japanese junior high schools and education for you.
Japanese junior high schools are three years long. Because of this, they
house the seventh, eighth and ninth grades. The school year starts in April
and ends the last week in March.
A typical school day starts at 8:25 with a homeroom. Homeroom goes until
8:45. Classes start at 8:50 and are 50 minutes long with a ten minute break
between classes. Lunch is 40 minutes long. Depending on the day, classes
end about 2:20 or 3:40. Japanese students also have half days of school on
the first and third Saturday of each month until 12:20.
From the outside, they don t look much different than schools in America.
You might have noticed that the schools are not made with bricks, but
concrete. Most elementary and junior high schools are made from concrete. I
am not sure why, but it might have something to do with earthquakes.
Once you enter the school, you will start to notice many differances. The
first thing you will notice are many shelves for shoes. This is because
students and teachers must change shoes. They have special "indoor" shoes
to wear in school (see the picture below).Each grade has different colored
shoe laces. So you can tell at a glance what grade they are in. The usual
colors for shoe laces are red,yellow, blue and sometimes green, depending
on the school.
They do this because traditionally the Japanese take off their shoes when
they enter a house and wear slippers. If your are a guest, slippers are
provided for you. This took me a while to get used to. It makes running
back in to my house to grab something I forgot more time consuming.
Here is the teachers room. Unlike my junior high school in Iowa, there are
no individual rooms for the math or English departments. There is only one
big teachers room. Because of this, almost all classrooms are devoid of
posters and decorations that would relate to a particular subject.
This is a typical classroom. The students spend most of the day in this
classroom except for P.E., Music and Science classes. Instead of the
students moving, the teachers must move from classroom to classroom.
Students don t have lockers either. Instead each student has a cubby at the
back of the classroom where they put their things.
Students must wear school uniforms.They are usually black or navy blue.
Students also have the same P.E. outfits too.You can see the P.E. outfits
in the pictures of the students cleaning. Besides school uniforms, there
are also rules against dyeing or perming their hair or piercing their ears.
Most Japanese junior high schools do not have a school cafeteria. The
students bring lunch from home and eat lunch with their class in their
classroom. Usually their homeroom teacher will eat with them.
A typical student s lunch usually consists of rice, fish(or meat) and a
salad of some sort. You won t be finding and peanut butter and jelly
sandwiches here.
Everyday the students clean the school. They sweep and mop the floors,
clean the bathrooms and wash the windows. They also take out the garbage to
be burned or recycled.
Japanese junior high schools have many different clubs. Each student must
paticipate in a club. They have most of the same clubs(or what we would
call teams) here like basket ball, volleyball and baseball. They also have
soccer, ping pong, and many other clubs. Some of the clubs you probably
won t find in America include Judo, Kendo(Japanese fencing, Japanese
calligraphy and Japanese tea ceremony clubs. Clubs usually last until 5:00.
Sometimes they go as late as 6:30.
Every Monday morning there is an all school meeting. Durning this time the
principal makes speeches(varying from how to be a better person to
anecdotes about his own experiences, etc.), announcements are made about
what tournements school teams have gone to and what awards they recieved
and general announcements that concern the school or student body. Each
grade also has it s own morning meeting on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.
In March, there is a graduation cermoney for the ninth grade students. The
ninth graders have earned this by spending the last three years studying
(or not studying) to get in to high school.
In Japan, there is an entrance exam in order to get into high school.
Depending on the school, the entrance exam can be very difficult. It is
much like taking a college entrance exam in the U.S. The better rated
schools, like Harvard or M.I.T., are harder to get into. In order to do
this, many students(after club activities or dinner) go to "juku". "Juku"
is Japanese for cram school. Many students trying to get into high school
or college attend these cram schools. Yes, colleges also have these
dreadful entrance exams, too.
