Can I still be liable to pay school fees when i drop out? Even though the school is not producing a conducive learning environment

I am a student at a school. The school is unaccredited and the people handling my course are not organised so classes can be cancelled at anytime. We don’t receive our schedules on time so we do not know what classes we have until we ask and they still want us to submit work on time or else we will be penalized. I want to withdraw from the course but the terms and conditions on the application form say I am liable for the whole amount. What can i do?
