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 community.
