A Warm Welcome
The International School of Koje is a unique school. Founded in the 1970’s, the school was originally built to educate the international families contracted for the shipbuilding industry in the small town of Okpo on the beautiful South Korean island of Geoje (Koje).
The International School of Koje is an inclusive, international, learning community for children from the age of 2 to 18. ISK provides an education which promotes academic achievement, social responsibility and global awareness. We follow the International Primary Curriculum and are fully accredited to teach the International Early Years, Primary and Middle Years Curriculums. Our high school students follow the Cambridge IGCSE and A Level programmes for which we are also fully approved by Cambridge International Education, the William Pike Challenge Award and the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award. ISK is also accredited by WASC the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. This accreditation helps to verify the schools quality and integrity.
Our Mission and Vision
Our secondary mission and vision graphics have been released. Many thanks to former student Lingling Prapaisuwon and our current IGCSE Art class for the creativity behind this. A special mention to Ms Jiyeon and Ms July too.
Since our Early Spring Break all of our classes from nursery to Higher Years have been learning via distance learning.
With all of our staff google educator certified, we were able to meet this challenge with a developed amount of skills in place, however we have all continued to learn.
Our students have been incredible in their resilience and adaptability in approaching their learning. So too have parents who have been incredibly supportive in supporting their children navigate and access their learning.
Every class is still producing great learning. Below are videos made by our Year 5 classes in their unit, Moving People to raise money for North Korean refugees. We hope you can support.
ISK is an inspiring and spacious environment with a capacity for 540 students. Every classroom has an interactive white board and we also have a gymnasium, cafeteria, science lab, computer lab, music rooms, art rooms, basketball, volleyball, soccer facilities, a general makerspace and a textiles makerspace as well as a woodland outdoor classroom for early learners. Our facilities are in regular development in light of learning needs.
Learning at ISK
ISK is a learning focused school. This means that we continually reflect on how we can improve learning in the school and all school developments are considered with regard to the way in which they will support continual improvements in learning. More >>
