Warm regards,

Iain Macfarlane
Principal
Busan Foreign School

Welcome to our website!

I look forward to working with you to ensure that all of our students achieve academic and social success.  Our future is founded not only upon the civility and compassion that we can stimulate in today’s students but in their ability to adapt, change and grow in light of rapidly changing realities.  

Busan Foreign School’s mission is to inspire each learner and provide educational services that nurture their social, intellectual, emotional, and physical growth. BFS students are prepared to enter top universities worldwide (please look at our impressive list of university acceptances) and become responsible, contributing citizens in a rapidly changing world. Our ongoing commitment to intercultural understanding and a strong partnership of students, parents, and teachers allows us to achieve this in a caring and supportive environment.

To be successful, students need to be critical thinkers, creative problem solvers, lifelong learners and effective communicators.  So too, will the adults who work with them.  Education is a continual process of reimagining and refining a vision of who we are as individuals and how we relate to one another.  Our office is always open for you to come in and share your hopes for your children.  

Teachers impact student learning and success.  Great teaching can inspire and sustain a student for many years, even a lifetime.  Our caring and dedicated faculty encourages students to be socially conscious, hardworking, articulate, respectful and knowledgeable.  They teach our rigorous school curriculum, based on the Common Core State Standards, providing the foundation that prepares our students for American higher education.

During and after school we offer students a broad range of opportunities to express creativity, performance, athletics and inclusion.  We believe in finding and developing every student’s unique talents.  A strong sense of community with an emphasis on the arts, sports and a social curriculum reinforces our rigorous academic goals.
