Namimori Middle School (並盛中学校, Namimori chūgakkō?) is a middle school in Namimori, Japan. It is the primary setting where most of the main events in the Katekyo Hitman Reborn! series occur. Namimori Middle is based on real life middle schools in Japan. Students study for three years, encompassing 7th to 9th grade and is the last instance of compulsory education.

Education Edit

The standard subjects are Japanese language, social studies, mathematics, science, a foreign language elective (almost always English), music, fine arts, health and physical education, and industrial arts or homemaking. The school is also required to supply Homeroom, an ethics course, and extracurricular activities.[1] Supplementary classes are also provided for students who failed some subjects, where Tsuna and Yamammoto are regularly attending.[2]

Physical Education is taught by Enomoto (which included swimming class), Mathematics by Nezu, and Homemaking[3][4] & English is temporarily taught by Dino.

Additionally, Namimori Middle School ran an Athletics Festival.[5]

Uniform Edit

As is the general norm for Japanese schools, there are two sets of seasonal school uniforms, for the summer and winter. These uniform changes occur on June 1st and October 1st, regardless of the weather.[12] Namimori Middle follows the Western-influenced blazer style, but when the school first opened they wore the then common, gakuran-style uniform, before switching out. The Disciplinary Committee follows tradition by wearing the old set.[13]

Standard Edit

Summer uniform Edit

Girls wear a short-sleeved a white blouse, a red or blue bowtie, and a blue skirt. Boys wear a white button-up shirt, a red or blue tie, and blue or black trousers. Both wear optional yellow blazers with the middle school's crest emblazoned over the left breast.

Winter uniform Edit

Girls wear a long-sleeved white blouse, a red bow-tie, and a khaki skirt. Boys wear a long-sleeved white button-up shirt, a blue tie, and khaki trousers. Both have options between navy blue or black sweater vests, sweater cardigans, or jacket blazers.

Disciplinary Committee uniform Edit

The Disciplinary Committee, the blazer, and vest are replaced by a black Gakuran, with a red inner lining. They wear black trousers, the red committee armband pinned to the left sleeve and (excepting the leader) all have pompadour-style hair.

Tetsuya wears a white round-collar shirt under his Gakuran.
