Club activities

For boys, regular club activities are: baseball, table tennis, art, brass band, judo, and kendo. For girls, the clubs are: softball, table tennis, art, brass band, judo, and kendo. In the winter, boys and girls can join the ski club in addition to their regular club. In the summer, they can similarly join cross country and track and field. Students may run for the student council in addition to other club activities.

Because the school population has recently been declining, it is possible that some clubs may be removed. Boys soccer was removed in 2006. Ski club enrollment is very low.

History

In April 2009, Yashima Junior and Senior High Schools moved to a new building behind Lawson Station. Before 2009, the junior high school was on the hill by the softball stadium and the high school was near Town Hall and the elementary school. Now, the schools share the building but are otherwise separate entities. The old junior high school building opened May 1947, closed April 2009, and was demolished in the spring of 2010.
