Testimonials

  • When I come back to GSIS, all the memories of the day to day interactions that I had with my friends and teachers come back to me. It wasn’t until I was in college that I realized how great the environment is here. It’s something that I took for granted while I was a student here but really appreciate now that I am in college. » Tracy Kim, Alumna Class of 2011

  • 졸업 후 GSIS에 다시 방문하니 학창시절에 친구들과 선생님들과 함께했던 하루하루의 추억이 되살아나네요. GSIS가 얼마나 좋은 곳이었는지를 대학교 입학 전까지는 정말 몰랐었어요. GSIS에 재학 중일 때에는 당연하게 여겼던 모든 것들이 대학생이 되어 그 시절을 되돌아보니 정말 감사한 일들이었네요. » 2011년도 졸업반 Tracy Kim

  • GSIS에서는 학급교사와 특수교사가 협력하여 전체 학생들을 교육하는 데 힘쓰고 있습니다. 학부모님과의 파트너십은 우리 학생들이 용감하게 새로운 도전을 시도하며 균형이 잡힌 아이들로 성장할 수 있도록 도와줍니다. 저희는 GSIS의 학생 개개인 모두 국제 사회에서 두려워하지 않고 새로운 길, 새로운 생각, 새로운 기술발달을 탐구할 수 있도록 협력하고 있습니다. 하나님의 사랑을 나누는 것도 제가 이곳에 있는 큰 이유 중 하나입니다. GSIS에서 학생들은 영적으로 양육되며, 실천하는 하나님의 사랑을 체험하게 됩니다. » 교사 Lynnie Vandermeer

  • My daughter has attend GSIS since kindergarten and is currently in grade 6. The best part of GSIS is the teachers here take care of their students with a Christian spirit because of the mission of the school. GSIS also offers the IB program, a high quality international education program which is recognized by leading colleges & universities. I would love to see my daughter graduate GSIS! » Mina Sung, Parent

  • GSIS에서 제가 가장 좋아했고 최고로 꼽는 수업은 HL 생물 수업이었습니다. 담당 선생님께서는 다양한 주제를 찾아낼 수 있도록 도와주셨고, 이는 제가 대학교 입시를 준비하는 데 많은 도움이 되었습니다. 담당 선생님께서 생명공학 및 의학 분야에서 다수의 학술 논문과 연구결과를 공유해주신 덕분에 저는 제 미래의 목표를 의학분야에서 찾게 되었습니다. » 2015학년도 졸업반 Samantha Kim

  • 제 딸은 유치원부터 지금 다니고 있는 6학년까지 이곳 GSIS에서 교육을 받아왔습니다. GSIS의 가장 큰 장점은 미션스쿨이라 모든 선생님께서 기독교 정신으로 학생들을 돌봐주신다는 점입니다. GSIS는 우수한 기독교 학교이며, 또한 유수의 대학에서 인정받고 있는 국제적 학위 프로그램인 IB 프로그램을 제공하고 있습니다. 저희 딸이 GSIS를 졸업하는 모습을 보고 싶네요. » 학부모 Mina Sung

  • It is the outstanding community that has shaped me into who I am today : outstanding morals, principled rapport and a genuine love for learning have all imbued a sense of maturity within me. » Victor Jeong, Class of 2016

  • GSIS faculty and staff served as true role models through their words and actions which helped me shape a better perspective towards the world and to seek Christ in my life. 인생의 롤모델이신 GSIS 선생님들의 삶을 보면서 더 큰 세계관을 꿈꾸게 되었고, 제 삶의 주인이신 예수 그리스도를 바라보게 되었습니다. » Maim Cho, Alumnus Class of 2011

  • GSIS has brought specialists and classroom teachers together to help educate the whole child. It's a partnership with the parents enabling our students to grow up to be confident, well balanced kids, who will courageously try new things. We collaborate with each other for the benefit of each individual child, so that kids will be comfortable to explore new ways, new ideas, and new technologies in this international world. Sharing God's love is a big part of why I'm here. Students are also nourished spiritually and get to see Christ's love in action. » Lynnie Vandermeer, Faculty

  • 저희 아이들은 IB 교육과정을 통해 명확한 지시문과 기준, 엄격한 마감 시간에 따른 주제별 접근방식의 과제를 수행하며 현명하게 시간을 관리하는 방법을 배울 수 있었습니다. 또한, 아이들의 성공을 위한 선생님들의 헌신에 깊이 감사드립니다. 저희 아이들이 외국인학교에 처음 입학하였을 때에는 과제를 이해하고 마감 시간을 맞추는 데 많은 어려움이 있었지만, 선생님들과의 지속적인 대화와 세부적인 설명을 통해 좋은 결과를 이룰 수 있었습니다. 이러한 과정을 통해 성적에 대한 강박 관념을 넘어 배움을 향한 단계별 접근 방식을 눈으로 확인할 수 있었습니다. 이러한 학습접근방식이야말로 아이들을 위한 최고의 교육방식일 것으로 생각하며 진심으로 감사드립니다. » 학부모 Grace Kim

  • Through the IB curriculum, the well-rounded thematic approach to assignments that came with set rubrics and criteria, along with strict deadlines, really prompted and scaffolded my children to manage time wisely. I also greatly appreciated the teachers’ dedication in assisting my children to be successful. When my children first began international school, my children struggled with meeting deadlines and even understanding the assignments. However, the teachers always reached out and communicated rationales with thorough explanations behind such result. Through this process, I was able to see the step-by-step approach to learning instead of the obsession over grades. Such an approach in learning was the best fit for my children and for that, I am truly thankful. » Grace Kim, Parent

  • The teachers at GSIS are all very nice and it's easy to talk to them, which makes it fun. I like the clubs we have at this school too. Last fall I participated in the soccer program and played against other international schools at jamborees. GSIS에는 정말 좋은 선생님들만 계시고 저희와 재미있는 대화도 많이 나눠주세요. 학교에서 참여하는 클럽활동도 정말 좋아요. 지난 가을에는 방과 후 축구 프로그램에 참여하여 다른 외국인학교와 잼보리 경기도 했어요. » Lucas Lee, Grade 10

  • One of my best academic experiences here at GSIS was in my HL Biology class. My teacher has helped me discover a lot about the subject and has definitely prepared me for college. She also shared many academic writings in the field of bioengineering and medicine, and through them, I've been influenced to study medicine. » Samantha Kim, Alumna Class of 2015

  • We get to learn with iPads and have fun! I love my teachers! 학교에서 아이패드로 수업하는데 엄청나게 재미있어요! 선생님들도 정말 좋아요! » Emily Minju Hong, Grade 5
