Japan international schools enjoy for the most part great repuations. The learning environment is conducive to intellectual, emotional, physical, social and spiritual growth. The price of tuition is exorbitant but fortunately for almost all expatriate transferees this is paid by the companies.
Problems found in most schools in the west are almost non-existent. Fighting, drug use (there have been cases of this but due to Japan's strict laws on drugs it seems minute compared to the average school in the west), alcohol abuse (note that there are vending machines in Japan which sell beer and nihonshuu AKA Japanese rice wine (or sake) which are turned off at 11 pm), and bullying are rarely a problem. The one thing a lot of international school kids fall into is experimenting with smoking tobacco at an early age due to peer pressure.
