  • Japan operates a 6-3-3-4 system of education. This means six years of elementary school from the age of six, three years of junior high school from the age of 12, three years of senior high school from the age of 15, and four years of university from the age of 18. Compulsory education consists of the six years at elementary school and three years at junior high school for a total of nine years. Many children also attend kindergarten or nursery school before entering elementary school. For all of these institutions, the new school year starts from April.
