On behalf of the staff and faculty at Busan Foreign School, We welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year.

Dear BFS Families,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! This is the twenty-fifth anniversary of the founding of Busan Foreign School. We are excited to continue providing an excellent education and learning environment for our students.

This year BFS will have an elementary principal, Ms. Lauren Harvey, and an upper school principal, Mr. Carl Brenneman. This will provide focused attention to better serve the unique needs of each division. As we work to make each division stronger, we will make sure to leverage on the unique opportunities our students enjoy when physically sharing BFS with learners from all levels.

Our faculty provides engaging learning experiences that help our students achieve academic and social success.  We build a strong literacy foundation at all levels, and use globally recognized curricula to engage, teach, and challenge our students. We intentionally complement this with positive community, effective management, and developmental awareness programs. BFS students also have access to a wide variety of academic, artistic, and athletic enrichment activities. In addition, we equip them with the tools and skills they need to be responsible, contributing, global citizens. Our SHARK schoolwide learner outcomes (SLOs) drive all that we do and form the basis of our value system. 

We continue our professional learning and growth so that we are able to develop engaging units of study and high expectations for students.

We look forward to seeing how our Sharks will amaze us with their learning, with their artistic talents, and with their athletic pursuits.

While we navigate through a global pandemic that started over a year ago, we value our partnership with you, parents. Together, we will support students’ social and emotional health,  provide them with rigorous academic growth, and meet our mission. Together we will live our motto, Embracing Diversity, Striving for Excellence.


Warm Regards,

Ms. Lauren Harvey & Mr. Carl Brenneman

We know ALL our families by name.
