- Educational Options
If you have children in Korea, you have three options for your children’s education.
Each option has its own advantages
- Korean schools
- Korean Schools
Foreigners are free to send their children to Korean schools. This is an option especially for the children with sufficient Korean language skills. Children lacking fluency in Korean might find it difficult to adjust to Korean schools. Korean schools are divided into public and private schools. Public elementary schools are free (except for school lunch, for which you must pay). Private elementary schools tend to be much more expensive than their public counterparts, but at the middle and high-school level, prices are comparable. Private Korean schools are much cheaper than even the cheapest international schools.
These days, thanks to the Internet, homeschooling has become a real option for parents, particularly for non-Korean speaking families who don’t want to pay for an international school. If you’ve got the patience and dedication, there are a number of websites that will help you build structured curriculum for your children, such as Homeschool.com and the US Distance Learning Association.
