Yongsan International School is located in Hannam-dong, Yongsan-gu in the heart of the foreign community in Seoul. Constructed in 2006, our campus includes over 60 general and specialized classrooms, meeting rooms, administrative offices, an elementary library, a secondary library, a 500-seat auditorium, two gymnasiums, two outdoor playground areas, an indoor swimming pool, a regulation-size artificial turf soccer field and above and below ground parking areas. YIS-Seoul is in the center of Seoul, the capital of South Korea. Twenty-one million people, almost half of the population of Korea, live in the greater Seoul area. It is a safe, modern city with excellent public transportation and many social and cultural opportunities. It is also a great starting point for traveling to many other countries in Asia. Korean is the main language of the country, but Seoul is relatively English friendly. The weather is generally beautiful in the spring and fall, hot and humid in the summer, and at times very cold in the winter.

YIS-Seoul stresses academic and spiritual excellence in all we do as a school. We seek to integrate a biblical worldview into every part of the curriculum and extra-curriculum. We do this with a student body from over 40 countries. God blesses us with many opportunities to share the Gospel and to disciple those who know and those who come to know Christ. Our academic program from K-12 is based on the American curricular model with some modifications to meet the needs of our international population. The common language of all school activities is English. In the secondary school we offer several AP classes, and our students go on to some of the top universities in the United States. We also offer a full range of athletics and other extracurricular activities. Last year almost half of our secondary students participated in our spring break mission trips.
