Instilling Goodness Elementary Girls' School and Developing Virtue Secondary Girls' School.

On March 1 1976, Instilling Goodness Elementary School opened at the International Institute for the Translation of Buddhist Texts, at 3636 Washington Street in San Francisco. The school was relocated to the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas in the fall of 1978. Three years later, in the fall of 1980 Developing Virtue Secondary School opened its doors. In the fall of the following year, the school decided to adopt a policy of educating boys and girls separately in order to preserve their natural innocence and purity and to make it easier for them to concentrate on their studies. Since that time there has been separate boys' and girls' schools.
