There is a cultural difference here. British English calls it "tuition fee", because "tuition" means "teaching or instruction". American English calls the fee "tuition".

They're both acceptable in American English. Note the cultural difference Ben pointed out.

*The price of tuition is high". OR "The tuition fee is high". is correct The second sentence is correct!

Both sentences are grammatically correct.

I would say the tuition is high, not expensive. You could say the school is expensive.
