Welcome to Seoul Foreign School!

school in South Korea

Whether you are coming to Seoul for the first time, or returning for a second time, we hope you will find our New Families page to be a good starting point to learn about Seoul Foreign School and living in Seoul, South Korea.

The goal of the PTA Transitions committee is to help you get settled quickly and easily. We have members throughout the four school divisions who can help answer – or put you in touch with people who can answer – any questions you might have about the Seoul Foreign School community, academic choices for your children, or the city of Seoul. We host a Welcome Coffee on the first day of school in August and January when you can meet other parents, and find out about school activities. Thereafter, we offer Neighborhood Walks, guided tours of surrounding areas. The walks end with a stop at a local café for some good coffee and even better conversation. We also arrange for small coffee meetings for new parents later into the school year, put you in touch with other families of same nationalities if this is requested, as well as introduce you to local gatherings and groups you might be interested in joining.

The best way to get to know Seoul Foreign School and the community is to get involved. There is something for everyone so please contact us at transitionspta@seoulforeign.org or a PTA Representative from your division to get started!

Getting in touch with a current SFS parent

If you have questions about the Seoul Foreign School community, living in Seoul, or any aspect of school life from a parent currently at SFS, please email your questions to transitionspta@seoulforeign.org.

In addition to our divisional PTA Transitions Representatives, we will try our best to match you with a parent who can best answer your question. Please provide details of the grade and division your child will be enrolling in, where you are coming from and when you anticipate your move to Seoul.
