Seoul Foreign School (SFS) encourages you to visit our beautiful campus and see for yourself the unique atmosphere, the four individual schools, the incredible athletics and arts facilities and the truly committed teachers and staff members. We have just built a very impressive state of the art High School ready for the 2018-19 academic year. It embodies our spirit of Building For the Future.
All Seoul Foreign School students have access to a world-class learning experience which will prepare them for a rich and happy life when they move on to prestigious universities around the world.
A spirit of excellence and service has permeated Seoul Foreign School for over a century and we hope to welcome you as a part of that in years to come.
The exorbitant tuition fee means that SFS is designed to attract a specific socio-economic group. This is less likely to be the case among the teaching staff children due to financial incentives but for the others very much the case. Anecdotally, this is clearly suggested when observing the long cues of Mercedes Benzes coming to drop off or pick up the kids in the morning and in the afternoon. Having visited the school, diversity and inclusion among different nationalities seems evident but whether these values are taken on board to embrace different income groups is not evident. If you wish your children to learn in a ivory tower, SFS seems to be an ideal place.

Outstanding environment, with highly qualified (IB) teachers and top of the line facilities. Music and science departments compare to those of a university. Our middle school age daughter is thriving and enjoys going to school each day! Very thankful for the commitment and dedication of the administrators to the balance of student life at SFS. Highly recommend.
Lots of schools say it but SFS really creates a nurturing environment for the students. The focus is on the complete child. Evidenced by a world class performing arts center/ theatre arts program and best in class sports facilities/ teams, the teaching goes beyond the classrooms. With over a hundred years of legacy in Seoul, it's history and prestige in Korea speaks for itself. There is a reason why this school is one of the oldest international schools in the world.
This school has earned its elite reputation for a reason: it is the top school in the city and the country. This is for a reason: world class facilities, top-notch teachers, a fantastic student body, and a supportive parent community. The campus is inspiring; the moment you walk on you feel that things are happening and students are learning.
Poor (or non-existent) student wellbeing support, ridiculous grade boundaries, a hyper-competitive environment--unhappiness abounds in Seoul Foreign High School. Students here regularly pull all-nighters, study instead of eating during lunch break, and eschew a social life just to survive academically. Not to mention the glut of incompetent teaching staff/university counsellors, as well as facilities that are only mediocre relative to the extortionate tuition fees. The only redeeming aspect of this school is that they hire qualified teachers on occasion. I have never attended a school that cared less about the welfare of their students.
This is not a foreign school at all. This is a school for mostly English speaking Korean students. Bad education quality over all. Kids are rude and too competitive. They don’t know how to work together since their parents teach them that way at home. Parents, especially Korean parents are a lot worse than students. Faculties are not good either.
