“Every little experience I gained here at IBA has been enriching and will remain within my memories forever. All of the lessons we learned not only from our teachers but from our friends as well and all of the wonderful and terrible experiences we have had throughout high school have led up to this day that we never thought would come so fast. I will miss you all.”

“Speaking English used to be a terrifying thing. I had been caught up in doubt and just accepted that I could not do it until I came to IBA. IBA was my first step. At that time, I didn’t know anything. It was my teachers’ and classmates’ enthusiasm and thoughtfulness that helped me adapt quickly and use the English language. I really want to say thank you again for all your help. Although still a work in progress, I can say I am no longer terrified but confident.”

“As I look forward to this day, I couldn’t help but look backward to see how much I have changed. From the Hyon Jil who always wanted to laze around to the Hyon Jil who would want to do something new each day. IBA has helped me change. The school’s competitively friendly environment pushed me to better myself together with all my classmates. Before this, I would always find reasons to be lazy but now I’m always eager to get something done because of the craving to be productive.

“It’s been 5 years since I stepped through the warm, welcoming doors of IBA. I never even thought that I would be able to graduate from this school since I really struggled a lot. But those struggles helped me to know my strengths, talents, and capability of doing the best I could in every task given to me. Learning from my mistakes made me a better person. I’ve been through tough times in my life but I can say that IBA provided not only a community, but also a family that helped me to discover the real me.

I was recognized as being one of the students who really excelled in sports. IBA supported me by helping me balance my interest in sports and my approach to academics.”

“When I came here, I had no expectations. I didn’t really expect much from this school. I thought it was just an ordinary school with ordinary people. But it turns out, I was wrong. IBA and all the people here were just the opposite of ordinary. It was unique and full of people who understand me.”

“Get out of your comfort zone,” those are words that I will never forget. Our teachers never failed to encourage us and these words, I believe, are the most effective. In my two years as an IBA student, I have tried different things that I have never tried before. I did the things I never thought I would do. They have inspired me to grow and to keep on improving.”

“The last three years of my highschool life has changed me the most, all thanks to IBA. IBA has helped me become a better version of myself and find skills I didn’t know I had. This school has taught me to do things out of my comfort zone, which helped me become more confident and willing to try new things.”

Yu Jin Kim

“Six years in IBA never felt long to me. In those six years, I was able to try many new things that I could not have experienced in other places. Unique school projects turned me to be positive, open minded and creative, while considerate teachers trained me to become a mature young adult with values such as honesty, solidarity and integrity. IBA has inspired me to continue to excel in academics as well as in extra-curricular activities. I learned so much from my teachers, classmates and the learning environment of IBA as a whole. International British Academy has left me such unforgettable memories that are very important and valuable.”
