Some Senior High School Uniforms For Fukushima City

Well, my son is now in a public high school here in Fukushima City. (April is the beginning of the school year in Japan.)

Junior high school students usually go to their nearest public school. (Or they pay for a private school of their choosing.) The junior highs all across Japan are first year, second year, third year. (The equivalent of America’s seventh, eighth, and ninth graders.)

A student doesn’t automatically get into a public school like in the United States. Instead, the student must take a test. Naturally the student wants to attend a high-ranking school. It’s very complicated! High school in Japan are again first year, second year, third year. (The equivalent of America’s tenth, eleventh and twelfth graders.)

Above is a photo of various uniforms for public high schools in Fukushima City. (I got permission to take this photo.)

These uniforms are VERY expensive.

Shoes for girls….

 

I am so proud of my son. He’s a good kid and I love him so much!
