Parent's Review of Seoul Foreign School in Seoul, Korea

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

Seoul Foreign School

In what town or city is this school located?

Seoul

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

International

What grade levels are represented at this school?

K - 6

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

My children travel by the school bus (of which there 18). It is a 45 min trip each way.

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

There is an indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, good outdoor playgrounds, cafeteria that serves good variety of hot and cold foods, gymnasium. Not sure of extra curricular activities.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

No programmes as far as I'm aware to help with transitioning. Before enrolment we had to submit work from their previous school and this helps in grade selection. I think most transition assistance would have to be provided by class teacher. There is no specific class to attend as an orientation (at least not when you start after the beginning of school year.)

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

There are parent teacher organisations and all newsletters are sent out by email not in paper form.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

We are happy with the school to date. We have one daughter going into grade 4 at the British school and one daughter going into grade 5 at the elementary. Would prefer if the elementary wore a uniform like the British school does. If your child/children have any learning difficulties you would have to discuss this as not sure what programmes are available.
