School usually starts around 8:30. Elementary school classes are 45 minutes long and in junior high school a class lasts 50 minutes. Students usually stay in their classrooms most of the day (except when they go to the gym, music classroom, science lab and home economics classroom). In Japan students stay in one classroom; teachers are the ones who move from class to class. The maximum number of students in one class is 40. Students start learning English when they are fifth graders.
