Comparing my school experience here at GCHS and my experience in Japan, here are a couple of pros and cons I’ve noticed regarding student behavior.

In Japan, there are several strict rules on classroom behavior. From food to clothes, there are so many restrictions but because of those regulations, I think it’s easier to focus in class.
