Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the Seoul Foreign High School section of the SFS website! It is an honour and a privilege to serve as the High School Principal and I am confident that you will find the website a great place to learn about us.

Seoul Foreign High School is a fantastic place to learn, be challenged, and enjoy an environment that is both high achieving and caring. Whether it is Academics, Fine Arts, Sport, or all three, the High School aims to offer you the opportunity to have your dreams realized.

The experienced international faculty are a privilege to work with and lead. They are teachers who care for their students, and as a result are deeply committed to each student’s success and learning. Through our two main academic programs, the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) from Cambridge International offered in grades 9 and 10, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program offered in grades 11 and 12, each student in the High School will have the opportunity to be a part of what we consider the most rigorous and best college preparation available to High School students. Combining this with our co and extra curricular programs that are known for both their commitment to excellence, and willingness to serve others, the High School is a great place to learn and a truly wonderful community to be a part of.

I hope you enjoy exploring the website and please do not hesitate to contact the High School if you have any questions.

Cheers,

Jeffrey Holcomb
