School Introduction

"Welcome everyone to Samyoung Elementary School.

Korea's first public IB World School!”


*IB (International Baccalaureate)

The International Baccalaureate Organization, in Switzerland,

is an internationally certified education program that cooperates, interacts, develops, and operates with various countries and international organizations around the world.


We are proud to be an officially authorized IB World School since August 18, 2021.


Here we operate using concept-based inquiry learning.

This model focuses on students' self-directed growth through

six transdisciplinary themes. As they progress from Grades 1 through 6, they will be presented with rigorous content as they dive deeper into these themes.


With student agency as the top priority,

we listen to the voices of parents and the members of our community as we strive to create a learning community where everyone’s voice is represented.


We ask you to continue your generous support for the growth of our Samyoung Elementary School students and staff as we strive to embody the IB Learner Profile.


The IB Learner Profile is a set of attributes that define an internationally minded person. The attributes of the learner profile include: Caring Thinker, Principled, Knowledgeable, Inquirer, Communicator, Open-minded, and Reflective.
