As in any other country, you will want to choose what is best for your child when choosing a school in South Korea.
As will be mentioned in the other sections, you have basically two options: Korean public school, or a private international school. There are private international schools that teach in English, French, Japanese, and Chinese. Of course the Korean public schools are taught 98% in Korean, so if your child is not at a basic level (and prepared to become fluent) in Korean, then this may not be the best option. Also, you want to consider the educational system; the Korean system is more standardized and foucses on memorization rather than creativity, while other international schools will follow an American or British style. Which type of school you choose will also determine what your child’s holiday schedule will be like. Korean schools do not take summers off, while international schools do. Money is also a huge factor for most expats. Korean public schools are free, while international schools are expensive.
As you can see the only decision that you really need to make is whether to go Korean public or private International. Along with that choice comes many other decisions, however our guide gives you in depth details about both options to help you make the most informed decision for your family.
