The exchange program between National Junior College(NJC) and Waseda University Honjo Senior High School(WUHS) started in 2007.
One of the distinguishing features of this exchange program is "joint researches" and TV conference before or after exchange programs.
We've been discussing about the theme and design of researches and exchanging teaching method, material and information each other, since the sister school agreement.
