Facts about Schools in Japan

  • Even though the Japanese education structure is influenced by the American system, schools in Japan have their distinct ways of teaching.
  • There are more than 14,000 preschools and more than 23,000 primary schools in Japan. For junior and senior high school, the institutions reach up to 11,000 and 5,500, respectively.
  • In Japan, there are approximately 1,000 schools for the handicapped (for the deaf, blind, and other people with disabilities).
  • Generally, Japanese students work to get a place in the country’s top institutions (including high schools). Some parents even enroll their child in private after-school study sessions, called the “juku” or “gakken”. Some parents send their children to special private preparation classes.
  • Since kindergarten, children in Japan are taught the values of cooperation, punctuality, leadership, loyalty, and obedience.
  • Physical education is highlighted in Japanese schools. In this subject, called “taiku”, students are required to participate in athletic activities.
  • Students in Japan are also exposed to the Japanese arts, such as the haiku and “shodo” (calligraphy).
  • In Japan, students perform cleaning duties inside the classroom, i.e. scrubbing of floors and cleaning of desks. This is believed to be an important training for student responsibility and stewardship.
  • A school year in Japan follows three terms: summer, winter, and spring. The year starts in April and ends in March of the following year. After every term, students enjoy a vacation period.

Education System in Japan

The education system in Japan is influenced by the  American and European school systems. The national education system consists of primary school (6 years), middle school (3 years), high school (3 years), and university (4 or more years). In Japan, children are required to attend primary and middle schools. Kindergarten or preschool is optional. However, at age 6, children are sent to primary schools and then middle schools, where they will be prepared to enter high school. Students in Japan take entrance examinations to be accepted into their chosen institution. In high school, students are primarily trained in academic subjects as preparation for university education. After completing high school, some students opt to enroll in internationally competitive vocational schools, which prepare them for employment. Otherwise, they apply for admission to a university.
