PTA meetings typically held in Korean. The topic of teacher's quali cations and past experience came up in a PTA meeting. Parents wanted full disclosure of all the teacher's credentials but TCIS representative smithjang of the previous post said when they took the request to the teachers they would not agree.

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

Only international school in Daejeon. Very expensive, very Christian. Bible is compulsory from kindergarten to high school with no exceptions, irrespective of the student's or parents' religious beliefs. In middle school, students must take 4 Bible classes per 6 days. No special programs for talented students. Parents supplement with home schooling or hagweons. On the application form, prospective faculty must sign up to the school's statement of faith. Headmaster has a criminal conviction (status of any appeal unknown). 90% of students are Korean or staff children. Foreign and mixed families with school age children have left Daejeon because there is no suitable schooling.
