Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to Daegu High School (DHS) and school year 2015-16! As the Principal of DHS I could not be prouder to serve you and the Daegu Military Community! Our staff focuses on providing a world-class education to all students. Our teachers have engaged in continuous staff development training that will position them to deliver the highest quality instruction to all students. Rigor is alive and well at DHS so expect your student to be challenged! Our new building is under construction and it looks like we will start the 2017-2018 school year in our new site. We had a successful AdvancEd Accreditation Visit and are working on their recommendations to improve DHS even more. This year, we will continue our two school goals of improving critical analysis and reasoning skills and writing skills, but will be looking at our data to see if school improvement focus needs to change. We fully understand the benefits when students can read, write, and comprehend, think critically, collaborate, and create. These skills, part of 21st Century skills, focus on the needed critical competencies for College and Career success now and in the next century. We are poised to continue a culture where academic success is the focus, and achievement is the result in a safe, caring environment. We are proud to offer a full complement of course offerings including all core subjects, special education, foreign language, honors and advanced placement courses, virtual school, fine and performing arts, journalism, yearbook, career tech, gaming and other technology courses, and Army JROTC. We have several ways that you can get involved. You can join our Parent Teacher Student organization (PTSO), or serve on one of our parent groups aimed at Continuous School Improvement (CSI). We are always looking for new partnerships, so if you are interested, please contact us. We would love to have you more involved here, and so would your children. We have several ways for you to communicate with our school including phone contact, email or Gradespeed - our student information system. Also, please review our website often as it contains a wealth of information. We have something for everyone here at DHS and always want you to feel welcome. We strongly encourage you to get involved. You make all of the difference. Welcome to Korea! We want your time at DHS to be the very best. Please let us know if there is anything that you need! Our main number is (DSN) 746-4645 and from U.S. 011-82-53-470-4645.
