The teachers and administration of Seoul Foreign School were very helpful with lots of opportunities for interaction and involvement. Those who look to be helpful to others and try to be useful seem to transition here better. Seoul can be a tough place for some folks to transition to. It ends up being how you make it - good or bad.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
Seoul Foreign School has given my kids an excellent education, with higher expectations than what they'd have gotten in other schools. It's not perfect, but it's only as perfect as the people who go there and work there. It's been a very positive and challenging environment for our whole family. I highly recommend it!
