Harmony and tolerance of religious communities is a necessity in a pluralistic society. Parepare is a city that consists of various ethnic groups, religions, races, and groups (SARA) and a city of transit, commerce, and education. The local wisdom approach of Panngaderrang is very important to be actualized through education in schools as an instrument of social interaction, to maintain tolerance and harmony in society. Panngaderreng (which includes ade', wari, bicara, rapang, and syara’) institutionalized in schools is a long-term resolution to build a tolerant and harmonious society. Character values that appropriate to be developed in the schools are alempureng (honesty), amacceng (intelligence), asitinajeng (propriety), agettengeng (firmness), reso (effort), and siri' (self-esteem). Panngaderreng-based education strategy can be implemented through the vision, mission and goals of the school, internalization of the curriculum, modeling from educators, including it in the syllabus and lesson plans, appropriate learning methods, relevant media and learning resources, in the forms of learning evaluation, and the development of local cultures in the school environment.
