1. Teacher Support


POLY's teachers are stepping into new environments and education systems in a new world. While this journey can be adventurous and bring trial and error, we invest in our Research & Development (R&D) and IT departments, accounting for about 65% of our entire headquarters staff, to develop structured curriculum frameworks and teaching methods, ensuring that no obstacles arise.


This allows POLY teachers to focus solely on delivering high-quality, consistent education methods, and above all, supports them in advancing their careers and achieving their goals.

As POLY customizes the North American curriculum to fit the Korean educational environment, most of our teachers are from the United States or Canada. Teachers from other countries also possess rich experience or a deep understanding of the North American curriculum, coupled with a strong passion and commitment.

Moreover, they must comply with visa and work permit conditions under South Korean law.
