Hello. As the Secondary School Principal here at GSIS I want to extend a warm welcome to you as you explore all GSIS has to offer as one of the few schools offering a full K-12 International Baccalaureate Program in Korea. We are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) in the USA, as well as by the IB Primary Years Program (PYP) and IB Diploma Program (DP) and the IB Middle Years Program (MYP). In addition to this rigorous academic program GSIS is fully committed to its mandate as a Christian International School focused on the holistic growth of each student.
I am looking forward to what will be an exciting year at GSIS for 2017-18. Last year I asked the teachers in the first month of school what they thought the strongest elements of GSIS were. Their answer was: the students and the GSIS community. I saw that response played out last year in a multitude of ways in the classroom, on VASE trips, on the playing fields, through the support of the PTA, the music performances, art displays, drama productions and the all school events as we move towards excellence in all phases of our secondary program. God has been good to us as a school.
The faculty here at GSIS is committed to a focus on learning in the classroom and seeing each student develop in a way that would lay the groundwork for their matriculation to university and the life they will lead ahead.
GSIS is a school that develops the mind, the body and the soul of the student through the development of rich relationships with peers, teachers, coaches, directors, staff and administration. We are excited to include your child in the rigorous, well rounded school program we have to offer.
Our teaching and support staff are extremely hardworking and are committed to academic excellence and holistic growth for your child. You can expect the following from our faculty, staff and administrative team:
What we desire from you this year:
The Diploma program at GSIS continues to graduate outstanding university candidates who, as we move into our second decade of existence as a school, are beginning to return to Asia to take up leadership positions in business, politics, education and media. I am excited to be a part of the growth plan for GSIS as we look to a bright future of a continued focus on excellence.
