Gyeongnam International Foreign School (GIFS) is a K-12 co-educational institution that offers students and families a truly international educational opportunity. The school’s aim is to develop students who care about the environment, themselves, and others, and are academically prepared for the high standards of the university or college of their choice.
GIFS has recently joined the community of International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools. The IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) is the world’s premier pre-university course of study.
Building a successful teaching team is a priority at GIFS. All of the teachers at GIFS are experienced, committed educators who are passionate about teaching and learning. The school recruits dynamic, highly qualified, licensed teachers that are assigned to work in their area of expertise. GIFS teachers guide and inspire students to think critically and creatively in preparation for a future in an increasingly globalized society.
GIFS believes that education is more than textbooks, paper, and pencils so it encourages and supports the arts, athletics, and service opportunities. The school’s students regularly enjoy field trips that take advantage of the unique cultural and natural environment of Korea.
