It is a very academically rigorous school that sets high expectations for the students. Special speakers and social studies classes are provided to support the transitions and third culture issues students face. The SFS community is like a family and it is like no other school in Korea.

SFS is simply the best international school in Korea and in Asia. Students have high goals set for them and very rarely do students not attend college. Many of the students who graduate attend prestigious universities in the US and England. I am impressed with the level of achievement, the dedicated teachers and wonderful arts programs as well. SFS is a wonderful school!
