The Jeju Provincial Office of Education announced on Dec. 30 that Maple Leaf Educational Systems and Schools is the preferred bidder to run an international school in Jeju Global Education City. While it will engage in ongoing and focused negotiations with the Chinese branch of the company for the next two months, no final decision has yet been made.
Maple Leaf Educational Systems is a Canada-based firm that currently operates Dalian Leaf International School and 20 other schools in China with more than 6,750 students enrolled.
The company proposed charging 10 million won in tuition including dorm fees in 2011 and 13 million won in 2012. The firm said all-expense-paid scholarships would be granted for 10 percent of the registered students. It also proposed that local students, who will account for up to 5 percent of the student body, would also benefit from scholarship opportunities.
The educational office on Jeju Island plans to conclude the discussions and negotiations by the end of February 2010.
