Welcome parents, students, and staff to the DoDDS Korea District. The Department of Defense Dependent School District in Korea is comprised of 11 schools. These schools provide our students with an education from Sure Start through Grade 12. Currently we have 725 employees with a student population of 5100 students.  Our school district is committed to educating and providing our parents and students with the best education possible.
A noted scholar once said, “Success is a journey, not a destination.”   Because “Success is a journey, not a destination,” our goal for the Korea District has three focal points:  Optimal student academic achievement; providing best practices for instructional purposes; and partnering with our military personnel.  Optimal student academic achievement results from teachers employing research based best practices in their classrooms. Our principals support best practices in our schools by monitoring the instructional process in the classrooms on a daily basis and by monitoring the various teaching strategies our teachers are employing.  The final focal point is partnering with our military, our community members, and our parents. In the Korea District, we firmly believe, “It takes an entire village to educate our students.” This is a vital statement because we encourage everyone to help us with the education of our students.  As your Superintendent, I welcome you to Korea; I welcome you to the Korea District, and I sincerely look forward to working with you.
