The inelastic response characteristics of the standard school buildings depending on selection of hysteresis models and variable earthquakes are studied. Three earthquake records of El-centro, Santa-Monica, Taft in accordance with KBC2009 standard and four inelastic hysteresis models such as Degrading tri-linear model, Clough model, Takeda model, and Modified Takeda model are used. The inelastic response characteristics such as story shear force, story drift ratio, story displacement are reviewed. As results, El-centro earthquake shows large response in transverse direction and Santa Monica earthquake shows larger response in longitudinal direction on the contrary. Taft earthquake shows less variation of story drift ratio and story displacement for all hysteresis models and stable response.
