Supplementary Language Courses
Students can take ESL or JSL classes. The aim of these classes is to improve students' English or Japanese language ability at an advanced pace to ensure that they can understand the language used in their other courses.
Course offerings and course contents may vary year to year, depending on student numbers, instructors and/or instructor availability.
An in-school placement test, as well as semester grades and teacher recommendation, will determine whether a student should be placed in required elective courses in 9th and 10th grades. The student’s score on the TOEFL test (or other standardized tests) will not necessarily have an effect on the placements. In 11th and 12th grade, a wider variety of elective courses, in addition to Academic Extensions, are offered for students to choose from.
