Welcome From the Head Office

Gyeonggi Suwon International School (GSIS) is proud to be the first fully accredited three program International Baccalaureate (IB) World School in the greater Seoul area, and the second such school on the Korean peninsula. Students progress through the Primary Years (PYP), Middle Years (MYP), and the Diploma (DP) programmes as they move towards matriculation in a thriving academic environment. The school services both the educational and co-curricular needs of more than 500 Kindergarten - Grade 12 students and their families. Located in Suwon, a short commute south of Seoul, GSIS provides a dynamic learning environment, passionately committed to “educating the whole child” within the context of a faith-based Christian school environment. 

We look forward to hearing from you and sharing more information about the learning community at GSIS.

Deeply Committed

The dynamic and rigorous curriculum at GSIS is designed to kindle a passion for inquiry, to recognize diverse intellectual talents, to seek areas of service, and to cultivate a Christian worldview. We believe that our students experience individual achievement most effectively in a safe, nurturing, and inclusive learning environment.

Athletics

The GSIS program seeks to provide a supportive environment in which each individual can develop. With an emphasis on sportsmanship, each student-athlete is challenged to learn and develop new skills, embrace the value of working together to achieve common goals, and become empowered to stretch their boundaries and self-expectations.

Counseling

GSIS strives to provide students with a comprehensive and developmental guidance program that encourages students to develop emotionally, academically, socially and spiritually.  Our program will meet the needs of our students and school community by providing a relevant guidance curriculum, individual planning, and personal responsive services.

The Arts

The Arts at GSIS focuses student learning on an aesthetic understanding and arts practice developed through the art forms of drama, music and visual arts, experienced individually or in combinations with others.

Alumni

Those who have moved from GSIS all around the world have paved the way for those who excel today. Current GSIS students work upon the quality and reputation built by the hard work and successes of those who have gone before.

Learning

GSIS academic standards are rigorous to ensure that each student has as many open doors as possible to pursue upon completion of his/her studies. In addition, GSIS creates a nurturing and caring Christian environment where students, teachers, and parents work as a close knit community.
