High School

In Japan, High School consists of 3 grades. Students are usually between 15 and 18 years old. Education is no longer compulsory at this level, but most Japanese people attend high school. This level is where students begin to move into a career track, as different high schools can have different focuses. Admission is usually based on the results of entrance exams, requiring a certain score to pass.
