'International in Every way'

Seoul Foreign School is Seoul’s longest established International school and was one of the first 10 international schools in the world. Founded in 1912 it offers a community of excellence coming together to educate children at all ages and all stages. We combine heritage with a passion for learning and are dedicated to the service of all.

The school has a current population of over 1400 students. Coming from over 50 countries and many diverse backgrounds our students have an opportunity to learn and understand about many cultures. We aim to build on this and offer a global perspective on all aspects of education.

Our four individual schools - Elementary, Middle, High and British - are situated together on a world class campus in central Seoul offering easy access from all popular residential areas. Physical, spiritual and academic needs are served across the facilities. Students have the opportunity to participate in many activities - within the school day and in extra curricular time - including many competitive sports, arts and sciences and holistic interests.

Teaching comprises a Pre- K to Grade 12 learning environment. The PYP and MYP are offered along with the English National Curriculum and both lead seamlessly into the IB Diploma Programme to prepare students for university and beyond. Our teachers are rigorously selected and their passion, inspiration and academic excellence ensure our students go on to attend prestigious colleges and schools and succeed in all walks of life.

We are a Christian school for all. Our students enjoy an education surrounded by our rich heritage in preparation for a future as global contributors.
