There is a proverb handed down from mouth to mouth among Native Africans.
"If you go faster, be alone, but if you go farther, travel together."
We who claim to live in a civilized culture, get wisdom from Native Africans.
The word "companion" has been forgotten for a long, since we rushed to the groundless goal for being the first class in the world, struggling in the overheating competition. Our education presses our students saying compete with your classmates and go one step farther than them.
That's why the students in Korea are unhappy.
Our school aims are "traveling together" and "pleasant school"

The One who has more privileges should take more responsibilities socially and morally.
Sharing and giving away is the ultimate way for us to live.
We are not all the competitors but companions and co-workers.
Our school is the cradle of character education.
Secondour aim is that our students and parents, also co-workers make a happy school.
Education is to teach joyfully and to learn happily and this will happen in school.

Our school is a real "Healing Camp".
No bullies, No smokers, No violence.
