Class schedule

Schools prepare a class schedule in line with the school's curriculum. As one period for a single-credit course is 50 minutes, the majority of classes are 50 minutes long and the schedule covers a week-long period. Below is an example of a class schedule for senior high school. The morning is divided into four class periods with 5, 10 and sometimes 20-minute breaks between periods, depending on the school, followed by two periods in the afternoon after the lunch break. Students usually spend their break time moving from one classroom to another or preparing for the next lesson. In credit-based schools where students can choose their own course subjects, the class schedule differs for each student rather than for each class, which means that some students may have a free period.

In public elementary, junior and senior high schools, the second and fourth Saturday of every month have been holidays since 1995 and from 2002 every Saturday will become a holiday.
