Primary teaching in Korea
Hyundai Foreign School is a very special international community school, situated on a beautiful compound in the coastal city of Ulsan, South Korea, and our students enjoy an innovative and high quality education from the early years through to the end of middle school. The relatively small size of our school means that HFS students experience a highly personalised learning environment, small class sizes and the security of being part of a tight knit community. Our small size also enables the teachers to know all students as individuals and ensure that each child is supported and encouraged to reach their individual potential. We are a learning community committed to excellence in all that we do, to achieve the best possible outcome for all our students.
