Daegu International School continues to exceed every expectation. In 2014 we graduated our first class of seniors and sent students to some of the best universities in America and Korea. Our school is based on the American Independent School Model and Curriculum. We provide all students the opportunity to excel in academics, extra-curricular, athletics, and English. Our curriculum and school model are based on the very latest philosophy about how to best prepare for success in college and in life.
The teachers and staff at Daegu International School are some of the best in the world. This year we are proud to offer 15 Advanced Placement Courses, which give our students an advantage as they apply to American Universities. We continue to have the highest percentage of certified American teachers in Asia and the highest percentage of National Board Certified Teachers outside of the US.
Visit our school to see and you can truly see each teacher working to create a positive, caring, creative and challenging learning environment for each student. You can see the climate of excellence, as evidenced by student work displayed proudly throughout the school. You can see the dynamic and positive relationship that each member of the school community works to create.
Since the beginning, I have been proud to call Daegu my home. I am involved in every aspect of the school, including the Residence Hall, cafeteria, athletics, academics, and arts. As Headmaster, I am dedicated to making Daegu International School the best school in Asia, for my children and yours. I value the time I can spend with parents, families, and students. I am always available to answer questions, solve problems, and listen. Please find the time to stop by. I look forward to talking to you, and sharing our school.

Sincerely,

Gary Odom
