Brief School History
Ngaraard Elementary School began in 1947 or shortly after the end of the second World War. The school officials used the old Japanese school building seen in the picture on the right. Students came from as far as Kayangel, Ngiwal and Ngarchelong to attend school in Ngaraard. Most of those who could not commute daily stayed with relatives in Ngaraard and attended school. Some of the first students were Pedro Besebes, Kalisto Renguul, Robert Tochi, Kyoko Kloulubak, Katarina Blaluk, Gabriel Arbedul, Mechelins Tmakeung and Natsko Renguul. The students learned English, Math, Science and Social Studies. The students brought their own lunch and stayed late participating in Physical Education programs.
