After school study time centers on the Kumon study method. Specialist Kumon method teachers run the sessions. Junior high school first and second year students must study at least one subject. They can choose from math, English or Japanese.
Students attend one session per week. Junior high school first year students attend with their home-room class on a specific day in the first sememster. From the second semester, they can choose which day they attend. This is to allow them to attend club activities.
Even though the study session is only once a week, there is homework everyday. Doing a little everyday is the key to success with the Kumon study method.
