Situated in the southern city of Busan, close to the famous Haeundae
beach, International School of Busan is a not-for-profit school
run by a Board of Governors, catering for children between the ages
of 2 and 14 years old. Since its establishment in 1983 by the employees
of international companies, the school has offered an international
style education, enabling children to transfer to any system in
the world without detriment. The school encourages a high level
of self-confidence and esteem while at the same time fostering an
ethos of tolerance and respect.
International School of Busan is proud to be the only CIS accredited
school in South Korea and endeavours to maintain a high standard
of educational excellence through continual curriculum review, professional
development and up to date facilities. Throughout the school, the
teaching aims to use the best educational practice and materials
from around the world. To help achieve this, the school employs
well-qualified staff from the UK, Australia, the USA, New Zealand,
Korea and Columbia. At the present time, due to increased enrolment
and to provide for future expansion of the older grades, the school
is actively preparing to relocate to a larger site by August 2005.
With specialist teachers for physical education, ICT, Korean, Spanish
and ESL, the school provides an all-round education with emphasis
also upon the arts, whether through music, aft or the performing
arts. After school, there are a wide range of activities offered,
run by teachers, parents and members of the outside community. Students
of all ages engage in regular field trips and older students have
an annual camp.
The International School of Busan year has 180 contact days and
runs from late August until mid June, with the main holiday being
from mid December until the start of January.
There is an active PSG (Parent Support Group) at International
School of Busan that works hard to develop the important social
aspect of the school. With events such as coffee mornings, discos,
barn dances, games nights and a Mayfair, the PSG plays an important
role bringing together the members of the school's international
