The Bongduk Academy, which operates Hankaram High School, partnered with New York Dalton school in September 2010 to establish an international school that breaks away from textbook-focused and rote teaching methods and instead nurtures creative individuals who can become passionate leaders in the future.

Based on the education philosophy that students should be the center of education, the school embraces students’ individual interests and aptitudes, and implements the Finnish five-semester system. Also, students receive an education that allows them to apply for universities both in English-speaking countries as well as Korea.
