About Tuol Tumpoung High School

Tuol Tumpoung High School is situated in Phnom Penh, the capital and largest city of Cambodia. Phnom Penh is located on the banks of the Tonlé Sap and Mekong Rivers.

Tuol Tumpoung High School was built in 1954 under the name Prash Keo Moroko . Three years later, Prash Keo Morokot school was moved to the east side of Boung Keng Korng Market because the space of the school was very narrow and the rate of students was increasing rapidly. Under the management of Mr. Thanh Hanh, who was a school’s principal, he  decided to move to another location due to the bad conditions around the school. The new location was allocated next to Tuol Tumpong Pagoda in 1961. On April 17, 1975, Prash Keo Morokot was taken and used as a prison to control educated people and government offers because the Social-wing lawmaker regime was changed to be Pol Pot regime. The school wasn't allowed to open for teaching and it was closed for 3 years and 7 months and 20 days. On January 7, 1979, the Pol Pot regime was finished and the school re-opened again until now. People who had lived around the school and temple during Social-wing lawmaker regime were moved to other areas, therefore, new family people came to live around the area and those people re-named the school Toul Tom Poung High School.
