The School districts of Seoul has been designated as boundaries according to the number of students and schools in order to providing free public education service. As schools even in downtown areas are used to have vacant classrooms because of the decrease in students, they open to students from newly developed high density areas. In the situation, there are emerging risks especially for young children who should commute their schools on foot cross streets widen by new district plan. In a case of urban development, there should provide a certain portion of total floor area as community facility by urban codes but in general, the facility is too large to manage and operate within a site. Although rearranging public schools of K-12 in terms of urban housing renewal might be a risky approach that could take out local memories shared by society groups, it is quite a urgent issue to figure out inefficient operation of education resources such as vacant classrooms, remote commute, and poor education program originated from student decrease in local districts. This research consists of three main parts; the first, the typological development of community unit in proximity, the second, the analytical progress of community optimization for urban renewal, and the third, the five phases of education community relating to primitive coverage, social identity, interface circuits, feasible patterns, and spiritual enforcement.
