Notes

  • Kyunggi High School is still one of the best high schools in Seoul, but it was one of the TOP 3 high schools (Kyunggi High School • Seoul High School • Kyungbock High School) before the high school equalization policy was introduced in 1974.
  • High School Equalization Policy
    Prior to the policy: students took the high school entrance exam and were sorted among schools based on their test scores.
    After the policy: random school assignments based on the students’ residence addresses.
  • It is one of the biggest high schools in Korea by campus area.
  • It is where the Jeil High School scenes for the Korean drama Romance (2002) were filmed.
