    • Abstract:
      The curriculum at a new Buddhist high school in Honolulu is likely to teach more about the likes of Mohandas K. Gandhi than Napoleon Bonaparte, says the school's principal, Pieper Toyama. "Given what is happening in the world today, it is high time that there is a Buddhist school that is focusing in a serious and significant way on peace," Mr. Toyama said. Called Pacific Buddhist Academy, the college-preparatory school opened August 20, 2003 with 17 ninth graders. Its founders hope to add a grade each year. The school is located on the same campus as the Hongwanji Mission School, a K-8 Buddhist school run by members of the Jodo Shin Buddhist sect, which originated in Japan.
