Director's message


Dear  Parents  and  Students, 
I would like to warmly welcome you to American STEM Prep. We are very excited to offer you a comprehensive curriculum that will give your child the opportunity to learn English, STEM, world culture, and mature behavioral traits.  We hope to build a community of teachers, parents, staff, and students that work harmoniously together to advance our students beyond their peers in Korea and the US.

We believe our program is like no other in Korea. Other schools may offer STEM as a second-thought, as only an adjunct to their programs. Whereas, our school puts STEM to the forefront. Why is this important?

Korea is projected to decline from having 4% in 2013 to 2% in 2030 of the share of 24 to 34 year-olds across OECD/G20 countries with a college or university degree.  Will your child be competitive in this new future?

After 6 years in our elementary program, your child will experience more hands-on science, engineering, and technology than their American counterparts experience during their entire 12+ years of primary education. 

Our goal is to have your child, after completing Grades 1 to 6 with ASP, be able to speak English as well as an American student, code in HTML, program simple robots, build simple electronic circuits, and be above the average 6th-grade American student in science and math. These are lofty, yet achievable, goals. We have the resources, standards, and curriculum to achieve this. Moreover, I am proud to say that we have also put together a diverse, caring, professional, and qualified team to accomplish this goal.

I look forward to growing the community of American STEM Prep together with teachers, parents, staff, and students.
