MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:

This question is straightforward. You simply have to correct mistakes in grammar in the area of subject/verb agreement. The American school is one school, singular, so you would use its, not their. That eliminates choices A and B. Also, because the American school is singular, you need to use has and not have. That eliminates choice C. Choice D uses a pronoun, ‘that’, that has no clear reference. That what? The adverb of frequency, ‘always’ should come before the main verb. Choice E is the correct answer.
