Combined junior and senior high schools

Chuko ikkanko provide the six-year curriculum for junior and senior high school in one institution. They are called chuto kyoiku gakko (secondary education school). Although many private schools already combine junior and senior high school, the first public school to do so was established in 1994 in Miyazaki prefecture in an attempt to promote diverse forms of secondary education. As there is no need for the students to prepare for senior high school entrance examinations, students can be given more latitude in selecting what to study. Many other prefectures have also established combined schools or are considering doing so.
