From the February 1958 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The dedication in 1953 of a new ultramodern school on the remote, nearly inaccessible northern tip of Okinawa, where at the time there was no village, nor were there any people within miles, evidences the vital importance Okinawans place upon education in human affairs. They wished to build a village adjacent to the school site, but the school had to come first before people could bring children into the area and be assured of education for them.
