The School to maintains a ratio of one adult for 5/6 children in the 2 1/2 - 3 year old classes and 8/9 children in the 3 - 6 year old classes. In the Kindergarten classes, the ratio is one teacher for 7/8 children. We utilize Montessori-designed equipment to develop the full potential of each child.
* Proority for Placement is as follows
1. Returning students;
2. Siblings of students already attending the school, if they meet the criteria in 3 or 4;
3. Children with each parent holding either: a foreign passport and Certificate of Alien Registration;
    diplomatic status; or SOFA status or its equivalent;
4. Children with one parent holding a foreign passport and Certificate of Alien Registration;
5. Children holding a foreign passport, both of whose parents hold Korean passports.
(This last category is aimed at children who may have spent the majority of their lives growing up overseas, been educated in English, but whose parents have not obtained foreign passports.)
* Placement is also influenced by other factors, such as :
English speaking :
classroom management requires a certain ratio of students whoare competent in verbal English.
( the class runs best if a minimum of two thirds of the children function well in English )
► Parents's access to other schooling
► Flexibility in program choice ( morning or afternoon )
► Usage of the bus service
► Parent involvement in running the school
