I am honored to welcome you to Daegu International School (DIS) where our students, teachers, and staff are Determined, Intellectual, and Successful. Beginning in 2014 with our first graduating class, DIS graduates have gained acceptance into some of the best colleges and universities around the world. Our school is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and based on the American Independent School Model. We provide our students a U.S. curriculum taught solely in English (Common Core and Advanced Placement). DIS also provides numerous opportunities for students to excel in the arts, academic competitions, athletics, and various after school, extra-curricular activities. We continually strive to be a school of excellence where students reach their potential to be prepared not only for academic success, but also to become well-rounded global citizens.
The DIS teachers and staff are all foreign, fully-certified teachers who teach content, as well as, character. Eighty percent of our professional staff has their masters and/or doctorate degrees, which demonstrates the importance of life-long learning to all members of the DIS community. We are proud to offer 13 AP courses this year along with the establishment of the prestigious AP Capstone program.
