Korean secondary school students compared to U.S. students

Today, we had the opportunity to attend Yeoju Agricultural High School. We were shown their incredible facilities and meet with several faculty members. The most substantial part of the trip to the school was the chance to observe students. The students were simply normal. They laugh, they joke and are respectful to each other. The one big difference we experienced or noticed was how serious they take school.

During our visiting today, we did not see as many students as we would if it was a different day. It was national college entrance exam day so many were busy testing. The students spend a lot of time preparing for this exam, more than it seems American students do. This is one difference we found between students in Korea and the students in United States.
