The purpose of this study is to suggest method of assessment of pedestrian accessibility of education facilities, comprehending student's behavior in walking to school for improving pedestrian accessibility of education facility. This study analysed pedestrian path to education facilities in residential areas with shortest path searching algorithm using path selection factor of pedestrian. Pedestrian accessibility in links of pedestrian path and neighborhood street was evaluated with distribution and visualization in pedestrian volume. Also, the distance of walking route and volume of pedestrian movement to education facilities in Eun-pyoung Newtown and Bund-dnag area are analysed for this study.
