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

There is a PTA and it is easy to find friends. School runs its homepage very actively and there are lots of things that you can try. It is also very helpful to use the weekly newspaper sent to your email address.

Many say it is expensive, but all international schools in Seoul are also expensive. SFS is one of the best schools that you can choose in Seoul and there are not many options to consider, in fact. If there is a slot, do not hesitate.
