  • the school year runs from april to march with a summer break come the end of july. first term is from april to july, second term is from september to december, and third term runs from january to march
  • your favorite high school anime doesn’t have separate classrooms for no reason. japanese students don’t rotate classes like american students do; instead, they have a fixed classroom and class number (i.e., 3-A), and the teachers do the rotating
  • they also don’t have the same classes every day
  • they do still have homeroom teachers; however, “homeroom” is more of a class meeting at the end of the day rather than at the beginning
  • the students are required to help clean the school at the end of the school day before clubs start
  • school uniforms are a thing for high schoolers. dress code used to be much stricter but recently they’ve allowed more basic alterations to the uniform
  • please stop writing them like american schools you’re embarrassing yourself
