I have attended SFS from sophomore year and met some of the best people. This school provides a lot of opportunities with academics, music, and sports. It’s a place where students are challenged and encouraged to reach their maximum potential.
We’ve loved having not only our child, but ourselves plugged into this community. We take comfort in the age of the school and its stamp on this country. Our kids educational and emotional needs are met by the staff. It’s a great place and I highly recommend it.
We are in our 6th year at SFS and our children would not hesitate to call it their second home. In addition to the rigorous academic curriculum across all divisions, there is a plethora of extracurricular activities for students to get involved in and ample opportunities to try something new. We are grateful that our children are at a place where they can be challenged, encouraged and loved in a safe and nurturing environment.
Our Children have wonderful peers and exceptional teachers who care about them and nurture their learning. We’ve been here for 8 years, SFS has been here for over 100 years, this is a rare opportunity to be a part of a special learning environment. We love the opportunities our kids have to learn on the stage, in music, sports and beyond the classroom. A truly international school, and the only non profit one in Seoul.
We’ve had experience in elementary and middle school. We have been pleased with academics and extracurricular activities especially sports. The facilities are excellent.
