“Chousasho” is the student’s transcript/contact book. Teachers use transcripts to track the overall status of students in terms (attendance, grades). The contact book is a very important document.

Students have the right to choose to participate in clubs according to their abilities and interests. However, if they decide to join, then the student should give their best to the club during High School. If students actively participate in clubs and contribute to a high level, this can have a positive effect on their ability to be admitted to later levels.
