Inspiring Excellence, Building Character- since 1912

Welcome to
Seoul Foreign School!

Seoul Foreign School (SFS) exists to serve the international community of Seoul. We have been ‘inspiring excellence and building character’ for over 100 years. Of the 6,000 international schools in the world, our legacy of achievement is one of the longest.

Starting in the fall of 1912 as one classroom of 12 students, we have grown into the vibrant and dynamic learning environment you see throughout our website.

It is only when you visit our beautiful campus that you can fully appreciate the atmosphere of this unique community. Meet our motivated students, experience our outstanding facilities, and talk to our committed teachers and staff members.

With a deep spirit of service, our community upholds the spirit of excellence which has permeated this school for over a century.

Head of School
Seoul Foreign School

A sense of ‘care’ is at the heart of our mission. This care is obvious as you spend time in and around our school. The importance of caring for each child, their learning and success is what defines our school’s approach.

This is a community that goes the extra mile for its students. We work together to understand how we can help each learner fulfill his or her potential, setting them on the road to achieving their dreams.

It is with a great sense of honor that I serve Seoul Foreign as only the fourth Head of School in the school’s history. I am greatly excited to be working amongst a community dedicated to the highest aspirations and the future development of a truly remarkable school.

God Bless,

Colm Flanagan
Head of School
