Seoul Foreign School

Last Updated on 29 June 2023

Seoul Foreign School (SFS) is an international school in Seoul established in 1912 to be the best English speaking school serving the foreign community of South Korea. SFS ranks in the top 10 oldest international schools globally.

We understand that your child’s education is a major factor in your decision to relocate to Seoul. Identifying a school that is the best fit for your child – one that will nurture your child’s intellectual, artistic, athletic, and emotional growth in a supportive and caring community can be a challenging task.

We offer an unmatched, diverse educational experience on a spacious, forested campus equipped with world-class facilities, including a new state-of-the-art senior high school that will take our students to new heights!

Programmes Offered

SFS provides two international curriculums: International Baccalaureate and English National Curriculum. Whichever pathway they choose, all SFS students gain common qualities because of connections between the curriculums and learning processes.

Our school year must include 180 teaching days, usually beginning the third week in August and ending mid-June. Holidays include the Korean national holidays, American Thanksgiving, three weeks at Christmas, a week during Lunar New Year, and a week each for Spring Break and Fall Break.
