QOTD: What is the oldest school in the world?

Last week we were discussing colonial America and how they educated their young.  Which promoted the question... What is the oldest school in the world?

The Student first pass guess was Oxford. A Google search brought back lots of data which lead us to   narrow the search to "universities" and "still in existence."

We found some information here:

Top 10 Oldest Universities in the World: Ancient Colleges

Wikipedia provide us with a list of oldest universities in continuous operation.

15 Oldest College in The World

The list varies because of definitions of continuous but Oxford does make the top 10 in each list.
