Education System in South Korea

Education in South Korea is one of the most competitive in Asia. Parents are obsessed with providing their children the best education. Children in South Korea are required to attend school starting age 5 or 6. Preschool or kindergarten is optional and can be taken by age 3. Primary school or “Chodeung Haggyo” lasts for 6 years. After primary school, children move to middle school or “Jung Haggyo”, which lasts for 3 years. The next stage of education is secondary school or “Godeung Haggyo”, which allows students to specialize in several courses, such as arts, music, foreign language, or other general subjects. Secondary education is non-compulsory, and may be taken in specialized schools or vocational schools. After secondary school, students can pursue a university degree.
