About APIS
The Asia Pacific International School (APIS) is poised to become the most exciting and innovative institution for learning in the Asia Pacific region. While there are a number of international schools already established in Korea, APIS sets itself apart from the others by providing a unique educational experience that incorporates aspects of East Asian culture and language into the best American academic curriculum. The purpose of adopting this approach is to realize the true meaning of "international education" in this era of globalization.
APIS Mission Statement
APIS strives to educate its students, in a loving and caring Christian environment, to become globally enlightened citizens, who are able to bridge the gap between the East and the West and are ready to welcome the exciting challenges of the new Pacific Century.
Our Campus
APIS is located near the heart of Seoul, Korea (820 Wolgae 2-dong, Nowon-gu, Seoul, Korea - which is about 30 min drive from the Seoul city center). The APIS classrooms and administrative offices are housed in the main academic building (60+ classrooms and offices). The APIS campus also includes a main auditorium, children's playground, athletic field, outdoor amphitheater, and gymnasium. In addition, we have a separate seasonal camp/conference facility located in a picturesque part of Pocheon, just two hours from APIS, with dormitory facilities for 400 students, various seminar and function rooms, and athletic fields.
APIS received formal certification from the Seoul Metropolitan Board of Education in 2006 to provide a U.S.-style educational curriculum in 3 school divisions. The Elementary School includes students from pre-school to Grade 5. The Middle School serves students from Grade 6-8. The High School serves students from Grade 9-12..
