I went to this school (already about 10 years ago, but it doesn't sound like much has changed). The worst thing about this school was the low quality of teachers. Many had little knowledge of the subjects they taught, which was shocking even to a teenager. I had also been to a Japanese public school, where the quality of teachers was much higher - of course, except in English. I moved to the UK when my parents felt I was old enough to go boarding school (16) to receive a proper education.
