Jejuhyanggyo Confucian School, located in Yongdam-dong, Jeju-si, is the first school in Jejudo Island and was designated as City/Province-Designated Tangible Cultural Heritage 2. It was established in 1392 (the 1st year of King Taejo’s reign), and went through various stages of reformation and relocation before settling in its current location in 1827 (the 27th year of King Sunjo’s reign). The school’s purpose was to educate talented scholars and foster learning but after the appearance of Confucian Academies in the Joseon Dynasty, its role as an educational facility withered due to the oppression from the academies. Currently, buildings such as Daeseongjeon Shrine, Myeongnyundang Lecture Hall, Jeonsacheong, and Gyeseongsa Shrine remain. There are five ancestral tablets placed in Gyeseongsa Shrine.
