My High School Business
Kyomeikan Private High School is a school with students scoring on the lower end of the national average and has barely enough students to meet the minimum requirement to continue its operations. Ryosuke Narumi (Sho Sakurai), an elite 35-year-old corporate employee of a large trading company, is assigned the role of high school principal tasked to revitalize the school’s operations despite not having previous experience as an educator. Will Narumi succeed in turning Kyomeikan High School around? What lies ahead for him and the teachers?
