Yongsan School Closures

After 60 years the Seoul American Elementary and Middle High Schools will close.

The last day of school on June 14, 2019 will mark the end of an era in the remarkable history of our schools at Yongsan. Each of our three schools in Seoul has a rich and proud legacy of service to military-connected students. For the remainder of the school year, we will remain focused on our educational mission and our ability to provide an environment of stability for your children as the transformation progresses.

We hold our mission dear and will continue to provide for the educational needs of your children, our students, whether they remain in Seoul or move to Humphreys. We appreciate your support as we make this transition. Working together as partners, which is what we always do, we can make this a successful journey for all.

Pacific West District Superintendent


Families Staying in Yongsan

If you are a family remaining in Seoul beyond the school closures, DoDEA supports educational programming through The Non-DoD Schools Program (NDSP). The NDSP provides academic support and funding for the education of authorized command sponsored dependents of the U.S. Department of Defense military members and civilian employees assigned to overseas areas where no U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity School (DoDEA) is available.
