What is a good school?

How do you define it?

What is a good school?

For this list, a good English school is one that cares about its` teachers and students. They charge reasonable fees to students, and pay their teachers a reasonable salary. Schools where the teachers tend to stay for a long time, and reports are generally good about the school. No school will have a perfect reputation. No company is perfect. All of the schools listed here for various reasons, are good schools. I`m sure you can find some complaints about some of them. Yet overall they are good schools. Disclaimer: The Greenlist of English Schools in Japan will not be held liable for any problems which occur between you and any of the schools listed on our site.

About ETJ

"ETJ is a free association for English teachers in Japan that encourages the exchange of information and teaching ideas, provides opportunities for training and professional development, and obtains benefits and discounts for members.

ETJ is a grass-roots organization for teachers around Japan that is dependent on a lot of individual teachers putting in a little time in many different ways. In fact, it is primarily aimed at the classroom teacher who is only able or prepared to put a limited amount of time into ETJ.

ETJ was originally set up by David English House in 1999 in order to provide a general association for the busy classroom teacher, and it is still heavily subsidised by David English House. Oxford University Press is also a general sponsor and shares much of the financial burden. One of the roles of the general sponsors is to develop stratetic relationships with other respected educational businesses and institutions in order to widen the range of services and benefits ETJ can provide to members, and become known to a wider range of teachers. This sponsorship also allows membership of ETJ to remain free.

Most ETJ projects are run independently by volunteers. This applies to everything from regional groups to publications. Most of these projects are set up with the encouragement of David English House, and supported until they are able to take care of themselves." --from the ETJ Site
