Middle School Support

Middle school is a time of considerable transition for students. They experience academic, social, and physical changes. Seoul International School assists in these transitions by providing a trained and qualified middle school counselor. The counselor has the unique role within the school system, helping them reach their full potential as learners and as individuals, by supporting their academic and social/emotional needs. By building relationships with all students, the middle school counselor is able to best meet these needs.

In addition to providing academic support for students, the counselor can assist in promoting healthy living habits and positive interactions with peers. This is accomplished through individual, small group and classroom work and through the Advisory program. The counselor can also assist students with challenges at home, conflict resolution, bullying/harassment issues, organization/time management, managing stress/anger, loss/grief and transitioning to a new school, grade or level.

Middle School Academic Support

SIS offers academic support for middle school students through an after-school tutoring program. Students can request a student or a teacher as the tutor. There is significant flexibility in the days, times, and duration of sessions so that students can feel free to design a program that works best for their needs. There is an hourly fee that is paid for in 8 hour blocks and the fee varies between teacher and student tutors. For more information about requesting this service, please contact the middle school secretary.

Office Hours 9:20- 9:50 Everyday

In order to allow students to have access to their teachers for additional academic support, SIS has instituted daily office hours. This is a great opportunity for students to have more individual time with their teachers. Office hours occur everyday from 9:20 to 9:50. To help insure that a teacher will be available to assist during this time, we recommend for the student to email the teacher ahead of time.

National Honor Society Peer Tutoring

Peer tutoring for academic support is also available for students. Subject teachers do the referral for this process. If you feel your child is struggling in a class and would benefit from peer tutoring, please contact the subject teacher or your child's counselor. NHS members will work with students during office hours and activity periods as arranged.

After School Academic Support Program (ASAS)

Teacher tutoring for academic support is available for students in core, graduation-required subjects. Based on the needs of the student, the program coordinator will assign students to a tutor. Each tutoring session consists of a set of eight one-hour lessons. The purpose of the program is to equip students with the skills to work independently in the subject area. Students may continue with the support based on teacher feedback and need. Please contact the counselors office for a referral.
