Current School

The school sits on a slope, with the buildings grouped around the top and east side of the site (see site plan p.10). Three of the buildings contain two large classrooms and have decks in front. There are a few trees in the playground area, which is in the center of the site. At the top, near the kindergarten, is the garden area which the students work in to grow vegetables. There is also a small pond with flow-forms—a form of water fountain which is said to purify the water—is near the bell which teachers ring to signal the end of recess. They have (a number of) full time teachers in addition to the class teachers, and various part time teachers for specialty subjects—music, handwork, games (physical education). The administrative office is at the bottom of the site. When the school has large gatherings, as in commencement, the playground becomes an amphitheater.
