Fort Knox schools are a part of the Kentucky Community in the DoDEA Americas Southeast District.  The mission of the Fort Knox Community Schools is to educate, engage, and empower each student to succeed in a dynamic world.

We employ the process of Total Quality Education throughout our school system, which results in growth and improvement through the use of data, stakeholder involvement, and consensus building.

We desire to maximize student successes and to help students develop to their fullest potential. Mastery Learning, a key concept embedded in every school, offers students opportunities for success through reteaching and retesting. Earned success for every student is the goal, and our parents are key to all efforts and successes.

Fort Knox History

On January 1, 1932, Congress designated Camp Knox as a permanent garrison and changed the name to Fort Knox. The post's Commander, Brigadier General Julian R. Lindsey (1932-34), established the Fort Knox Dependent Schools and appointed three school board members. Students were educated in tarpaper shacks. By 1935, enrollment had reached 85. In that year, a two-year high school was started. The first graduating class of 1936 consisted of four male students.
