DoDDS Okinawa

On Base: 634-1204
Off Base: 961-1204

To register your child(ren) for school please bring the required forms listed below to the school registrar located at the front office of the school your child(ren) will be attending. Please note that your child's school zone and subsequently the school he or she can enroll is determined based on your housing assignment provided to you when you arrive on Okinawa. Typically DoDDS Okinawa will host a district wide registration event at the beginning of each school year in order for parents to be able to register all their children at once. To find out more information about district wide registration events please contact the District at 634-1204.

Parents with students ALREADY registered for the current school year will need to re-register their child(ren) for each new school year.

Registration vs. Pre-Registration

Pre-Register your child(ren) Online
DoDEA offers online pre-registration in order to reduce the waiting time for registration on site, however pre-registration does NOT complete the registration process nor can it be used to re-register a student.

School Zoning

School Zone Maps are available at the Family Housing Office, District Office and the Student Transportation Offices. When you are living in temporary billeting your child is zoned for the school in that area.  When you have been assigned permanent housing (on or off base), there is a possibility that your child could be moved to another school, unless you live in the same zoned area.  For more information please contact the District Office, School Registrar or Student Transportation Office.

Entrance Age

Kindergarten students must be five years old on/or before 1 September of the current calendar year to be eligible to register for the upcoming school year.

First Grade students must be six years old on/or before 1 September of the current calendar year to be eligible to register for the upcoming school year.
