Principal's Corner

Welcome to Kubasaki High School

Welcome to Kubasaki High School, home of the Dragons! As we walk through the doors and enter the 2019-20 school year, we take pride in being a remarkable community of learners where young minds are developed, inspiring learning environments are prevalent every day, and where our passion for students drives everything we do! The DoDEA mission is integrated throughout every fiber of our school - to educate, engage, and empower each student to succeed in a dynamic world.

Our team of dedicated staff seeks to create a challenging learning environment that encourages high expectations for success through developmentally appropriate instruction that allows for individual differences and learning styles. A rigorous curriculum based on College & Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) and Continuous School Improvement (CSI) goals challenge each student to reach their greatest potential to adapt and adjust to a diverse and ever-changing global society. We pride ourselves in offering these 21st century learning opportunities for students!

Student performance data analysis shows us content that our students know and are able to do and helps us identify gaps in their learning. At Kubasaki HS, our team of highly professional educators utilize data-driven instruction to help all of our students achieve success. We collaborate by grade levels, by academic discipline, and across disciplines to develop an individualized program that is clearly defined by a specific student's needs. We work closely with our student's families, seeking input on programming decisions as we work FOR our students!

Not only do we offer a vibrant and exciting curriculum where a true education ties knowledge to critical thinking skills, we also care passionately about our students' character development and happiness. We work intensively to teach students a sense of understanding and compassion for others and encourage them to learn how to appropriately display the courage to act upon their beliefs.

Kubasaki High School is a true portrait of academic excellence where young people enjoy freedom through knowledge, develop creative minds, employ critical thinking skills taught through a rigorous and individualized curriculum, develop a solid foundation for their entry into college and the workforce, and contribute caring, compassion, and leadership in their school on a daily basis. Kubasaki HS is a great place to be!
