Head of School's Welcome
Seoul Foreign School 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 we are the seventh oldest and the oldest in Korea. Starting in one classroom of 12 students in the fall of 1912 we have grown in to the vibrant and dynamic learning environment you can glimpse through our website.
However, everybody who knows SFS will tell you that it is only when you visit our beautiful campus and see and feel for yourself what exists here, that one can fully appreciate the atmosphere of this unique community. We have a combination of motivated students, outstanding facilities and truly committed teachers and staff members, with a deep spirit of service, who embrace the responsibility to uphold the spirit of excellence that has permeated this School for over a century. This is part of what makes SFS special.
Yet primarily it is a sense of ‘care’ that is at the heart of our mission, a sense of care that is almost tangible 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 children, that wants to understand how we can help fulfill each child’s potential and set them on the road to achieving their dreams. With the Gospel values as our guide we aim to inspire in each child a will to make the world a better place.
It is with a great sense of honor that I serve Seoul Foreign as only the fourth Head of School and I am hugely excited to be working amongst a community that is dedicated to the highest aspirations and the future development of a truly remarkable school.
If you are interested in being part of the ongoing story of Seoul Foreign School, then we look forward to hearing from you.
