Mission Statement

Tiger Times Online is the official online newspaper of the students and by the students of Seoul International School. We write to inform, entertain, and provide an overview of student and community life for the SIS students, staff, and alumni, and any other local and international readers. The Web strives to provide a forum for student expression on significant issues to stimulate meaningful discourse.

TTONL will strive to accurately and impartially report news that is considered important and relevant to students, emphasizing school news and any community, national, or international news affecting the student body. Though TTONL will not deliberately publish material that is legally obscene, or intended to cause a substantial disruption of school activities,  it will not shy away from controversial or unpopular stories that have news value. We are established to share information on matters of interest and concern, from sports to lifestyle and entertainment, and will continue to expand our platform with easily accessible and entertaining podcasts and videos.

Editorial Policy

The editorial is a monthly opinion article written by the Tiger Times Online (TTONL) Editors in Chiefs (EICs). While the EICs primarily collaborate to write this article, the views expressed are ultimately representative of the views of the TTONL editorial staff as a whole. Before the editorial is written, thorough research on the topic is independently conducted by editorial staff and a discussion takes  place to reach a unified consensus on the particular issue to be written about. After the editorial is drafted, it is then sent to newspaper advisor Ms. Wendy Grant, for final edits and approval. Ultimately, the end goals of any editorial published on TTONL are to inform readership and promote healthy discussion of issues both on and off campus.
