After School
Japanese students prepare for high school by first attending school for nine years.  In Japan, students attend elementary school for six years and junior high school for three years.  In order for students to attend high school they must pass an entrance exam.  There are three different types of high schools in Japan: national, public, and private high schools. There are a variety of exams for each high school type.  The exams are difficult, so students study very seriously to pass them. High schools look at both middle school records and exam scores when considering students for their school.  Students who do not receive favorable scores will not be accepted into high school and may have to attend another type of school.  In order to ensure they pass the exam, some students attend Juku School after school.
