I had cousins that lived in Japan and was shocked to hear that they want to school a lot longer than I did. It did encourage me to do better in school at the time.

That is so weird! 
Here in Mexico the school system is exactly the same! and High School is not a requirement! 
Of course the system here is from September to June.... and it's Monday to Friday...

I was waiting for this 3-Min expert! 
Although when I saw the title I though you were going to talk about super-powered, ninja-training schools

Cause the title was super schools....

I would prefered going to one of these schools than to an American system. :P  
Besides awsome uniforms to enjoy, I probably would have gotten a much better education!

Now several years out of high school, I can happily report that nobody ever REALLY graduates from high school.  The school uniforms get replaced by suits and ties and the locker decorations get replaced by chemically-enhanced lawns.

Gotta love the uniforms. 
I knew most of this school stuff from playing Persona 4. School on a Saturday?! Eff that.

In Chile there are also classes on Saturdays at most of schools, mostly extracurricular activities, like sport clubs and such. And of course, detention.

Me too. Several times I was planning on going on Social Link stuff and I found myself being lectured by Mr. Morooka. Bad times.
