"Look out for schools in Seoul area. GSIS as last option since you wont find much professioanl teachers here. all is well as long as you dont have any feedback to school or teachers," commented one expat when asked about Gyeonggi Suwon International School(GSIS-Suwon) in Suwon.
"I would suggest to better look for international school in Seoul area due to below reasons :- Though the school fees of GSIS is fairly high, professionalism and standards are not that high. Though they have a good campus, it seems attitude and qualification of teachers may be lacking sometimes. So go for an international school in Seoul area," explained one expat in Suwon, Korea with kids at Gyeonggi Suwon International School.
