Junior and Senior High School

Kurume University Junior and Senior High School (KUJS) , or “Fusetsu” in the local area was founded in 1950 as a boys’ high school under the newly established post-war educational institution, the junior high school established in 1969, and coeducation introduced in 2005 to the high school, and in 2013 to the junior high school respectively. The outstanding
courses taken by the graduates of our school demonstrate the distinguished quality of our educational activities. Every
year more than half of the 200 graduates are matriculated in the University of Tokyo, the most prestigious university in Japan and in the faculties of medicine to national universities.

Though a substantial part of the pupils aim for medical careers, one third of the graduates choose law, economics or humanities as their specialties going on to highly regarded national and private universities, usually with more than 30 graduates being admitted to the University of Tokyo.

On top of the brilliant academic accomplishments in terms of the number of the graduates admitted to the most prestigious universities, KUJS is proud of its great contribution to producing bright and useful persons both inside and outside Japan. Indeed, quite a large number of our graduates have made themselves competent and powerful personages to lead Japanese society in its every branch such as medicine, law, administration, economics, academic world etc. Quite a few graduates have been active in political, legal, administrative and economic arenas as senators and members of the House of Representatives, lawyers, judges, government officials and executives of big companies and banks. Masayoshi Son, chief executive officer of Softbank Mobile was once registered in our high school. The academic world also sees many outstanding scholars and researchers having graduated from KUJS, among whom we can naturally be proud, including of: Toyoki Kunitake, winner of the Order of Culture and a candidate of the Nobel Prize, and Mitsutoshi Nakano, scholar of Japanese literature, another winner of the Order of Culture. Thus, our school is undoubtedly one of the most excellent educational organizations in charge of secondary education, supposed nationwide to produce brilliant and promising young people, who will be of great help to the prosperity and happiness of the mankind. As a coeducational school, we also have the firm intention of promoting gender equality, which will certainly make substantial contributions to the desirable development of the society we now live in.
