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 Maine Learning Results (http://www.maine.gov/education/lres/pei/index.html#
mlr2007) and the Advanced Placement system of the College Board. It is the goal of DIS to prepare all of our students academically, socially, and emotionally to enter post-secondary education in some of 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 are beginning to form athletic teams in our first year 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.
