Contest #456: Chengdu Shishi High School, China

Originally founded around 143 BCE, Chengdu Shishi tries to lay claim to being the oldest school in the world. Because the school has been destroyed and rebuilt several times (even though it is on the same site), and there have been periods when it was not in use, the claim of being the oldest is usually disputed by schools like Kings School in Canterbury, England, which has been continuously in operation since the 6th century.
