For this reason, in areas where it is unlikely that the shortage of classrooms will be resolved for the time being or where there is a shortage of classrooms, areas such as "difficult to accept" are designated, and strict regulations are being applied to housing development within the designated areas.[22].
  • Formerly high school high school studentsComprehensive selectionThe entrance examination method called "" was adopted. This is because the high school to which you are going to go is designated by the district where the student is from.School districtIt is the same as the system. Therefore, at the time when comprehensive selection was being conducted, many students were classmates from elementary school to high school. In addition, because I rarely failed to pass high school, there should be almost no difference in level between public high schools in Nishinomiya City, but differences in educational energies due to differences in income in each region and grades at each junior high school Since the top 10% of students in the top grades were able to choose a school, the fact is that some school districts had other aspirations and others did not. Later, the general selection was abolished, and since 2009 the current multiple-application selection has been adopted.

  • 0798(Nishinomiya MA, districts other than the above)-Takarazuka (Incheon district) can be called without the area code.

It should be noted that calls between 0797 and 0798 area code will be the local rate because the MA is the same.
