The LDS church has more schools in Tonga than any where else

The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints, LDS, has more schools in Tonga than anywhere else in the world.

The LDS Church has 17 middle and high schools throughout the world, and 15 of those schools are in the Pacific, in Tonga, Fiji, Samoa and Kiribati, and seven of the 15 schools in the Pacific are in Tonga.

The Commissioner of the LDS Church Education System, Elder Paul V. Johnson made this point in an interview with Matangi Tonga during a one-day stop over in Tonga to attend the annual conference of Pacific Principals of LDS church schools.

He said that Tonga has more church schools, because of the large numbers of the Tongan LDS congregation of 15,000.
