Danwon High School (Korean: 단원고등학교, Hanja: 檀園高等學校) is a coeducational high school located in Ansan, South Korea. It is a state school, being under the authority of Gyeonggi Province's Office of Education.
The school was founded in 2005. It established multiple cultures class[clarification needed] with The Borderless Village, a non-governmental organization in 2006 and 2007. Its motto is "self-realization." As of May 2013 there were 1542 pupils at the school.
Yun Junsil (윤진실) won the Korean International Women Inventors competition in 2008.
The school was closed until April 24, when it opened only for the 75 surviving juniors; yellow ribbons were tied to the school's gate, and a shrine of flowers and hundreds of notes to the dead adorn the school's entrance. A makeshift memorial was established in a nearby basketball gymnasium, with a wall of flowers and dozens of photos of the dead and missing.
The school's vice principal, Kang Min-Kyu, who had been rescued from the ferry, committed suicide a few days after the disaster.
