Mejiro Kenshin Junior and Senior High School

The School Year

The Japanese school year begins in April and is divided into three terms: April-July, September-December and January-March. Summer vacation begins in July, winter vacation begins in the third week of December and the academic year ends in the third week of March. Report cards are issued at the end of each term.

Educational Principles

In Japan, junior and senior high school students form the study habits and attitudes they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Japanese revere education and students at this level realize the value of a serious pursuit of education. Beyond classroom lessons though, the school has the great responsibility to teach the students to function together in groups, to take their respective places in society and to function as individuals with personal goals and ideals.

The underlying principle of education at Mejiro Kenshin Junior and Senior High School is to respect the individuality and personality of the student. It is the goal of the educational process here to help each student develop to her full potential.

Every class in the junior high school has less than thirty students, and there are less than forty students in each class in the high school. These class sizes help provide a balance for interaction between students as well as fostering a close relationship between the students and their teachers.
