Sasebo ES: Principal's Corner

Principal's Message

DoDEA schools are world class and our system works hard to ensure that we have structure and support in place to ensure we have a strong foundation established for student success.

Take a minute to review our school’s report card on DoDEA’s website, and you will be able to see our high levels of performance. Academic success such as this is the product of the teamwork of parents, teachers and students.

I wish to communicate a sincere thank you to all the stakeholders who devote many hours to ensuring that Sasebo ES is a great place to learn. The collaborative efforts of staff, students, PTO, SAC, commands, parents, and volunteers are in place to create a powerful learning environment.

I am honored to be the principal of Sasebo ES and to serve the command and the community as we forge the future through education.
