Daegu International School (DIS) is an independent American school with grades K-12 in Daegu, Republic of Korea. DIS offers an American Education to a select number of Korean citizens and international students. The philosophy of DIS is to offer the best American style education to students in Korea.
We offer a rigorous program based on the Common Core (www.corestandards.org), Maine Learning Results

It is the goal of DIS to prepare all of our students academically, socially, and emotionally to enter post-secondary education in the finest Universities and Colleges in Korea, the USA, and worldwide.
Students are highly encouraged to be involved in all aspects of DIS life. We offer a variety of athletic teams and have a plethora of after-school activities for our students to join. We also offer Korean history/social studies and Korean language for students who want to meet Korean education requirements.
