Parents are the cornerstone of the Seoul Foreign School community.
Working together, the Parent Association (PA) and Seoul Foreign School enrich the educational experience and overall well-being for all students. Strong connections between the PA and SFS facilitates outstanding educational opportunities, fosters appreciation for faculty and staff, and provides opportunities to develop community and connection for everyone at SFS.
The school values and appreciates the partnership with parents of each SFS student. SFS is dedicated to students’ academic excellence, character building, health, and well-being through strong family and community engagement.
What is the Parent Association (PA)?
Every parent is a member of our Parent Association, which exists to support the efforts of students, teachers, administrators and our community. The PA is an integral part of the school and we welcome your involvement.
Who volunteers for the Parent Association?
Everyone! We ask all parents to help SFS live out our mission by making an impact on our community. Each and every parent has various skills and talents and offering time giving back to the school makes our community stronger. There are opportunities for all to be involved!
What does the Parent Association do?
PA volunteers contribute their time and talents to enhance the student experience at SFS. From big events to small groups, volunteers enrich our community. Some examples include:
