Overview

BIFS, formerly known as International School of Busan, was established in 1983, and has a long and distinguished history of serving the international expatriate community in and around the Busan area. In the summer of 2010, BIFS moved to our current state-of-the-art, purpose-built facility, built by the Busan Metropolitan City, which supports our comprehensive approach to international education. We pride ourselves in personalized inquiry-based education experiences for all learners in a nurturing and inclusive environment. Our goal is to provide our students with a high quality education that will equip and enable them to acquire the attributes of the IB learner profile and to gain entrance to and succeed at the finest international universities around the world. To this end, we strive to provide a nurturing and rich educational climate that is committed to developing our students academically, socially, emotionally and ethically. BIFS is the leader and the school of choice for quality international education in south east Korea! As a testament to its quality and commitment to a truly international education for all students, BIFS has received authorization from the International Baccalaureate Organization to provide three IB programs: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the IB Diploma Programme (DP). Additionally, BIFS is accredited by the Western Association for Schools and Colleges (WASC) and Council of International Schools (CIS).

Governance

International School of Busan (ISB) (formerly Busan International Foreign School) is governed by a 10-member volunteer Board of Governors drawn from diverse cultural and business backgrounds. It is owned by the ISB Association of Parents, and managed by the Board of Governors. The parents or guardians of every student in the school are automatically members of the Association. Board members, consisting of parents and members of the international community are elected by the parents to work in partnership with the ISB administration to ensure a world-class education for every student. The Board consists of a chair, treasurer, secretary, four parent representatives and three non-parent representatives. The Board of Governors and its various committees meet frequently to discuss issues touching on a full range of school concerns, including educational operations, facilities, and finance. The Board continuously develops policies and procedures to effectively guide the school’s administration, staff, and faculty. Board committees are established to research and prepare policy recommendations. The School’s Board of Governors meets each month, normally on the 3rd Thursday, although meeting dates are flexible to accommodate the school schedule as well as the schedules of the Board members. In addition to the general board meetings, the Board of Governors can meet in an Executive Session to address sensitive issues. All members can also share in committee and subcommittee meetings.
