Public School Choice System 学校選択制について

更新日:2023年11月29日


1. Outline of the "School Choice System (Gakko Sentakusei) / 学校選択制とは

The “School Choice System (Gakko Sentakusei)” is a system that allows parents and children to choose the elementary or junior high school they would like to attend, regardless of the reason for their choice, if they wish to enroll in a public school other than the one in the school district in which they reside (a.k.a. "designated school").
Since the number of students that can be accepted at each school is determined by the school’s facilities and other conditions, if the number of applicants exceeds the capacity, an open lottery is to be held to ensure fairness before deciding who will be admitted.
* If the child intends to enroll in the school in his/her school district (designated school indicated on the enrollment notification postcard), there is no need to apply.

Who can apply for the School Choice System?

The system is for new first-year students who are residents Matsudo City and will be entering the city’s elementary or junior high schools next spring.

Eligible schools of choice

Schools adjacent to the designated school and within a safe walking distance of the child’s home.
* In order to provide reference information for school selection, the schools will hold “open school” so that people can observe classes, club activities, etc.
