If you're a parent of school-age children and you're either PCSing to Korea or you've already made the move, there's a good chance that you'll be interested in researching the various educational options for your kids—and one of those options is enrolling them in a school provided by the Department of Defense.

The following DoDEA schools in Korea are a part of the Department of Defense Dependents Schools–Pacific (DoDDS-P) region and are categorized according to the military installation that they're affiliated with.

Follow the link to each school’s website for specific information about the district, facility, teacher:student ratios, and much more

If you thought military life was filled with paperwork, just wait ‘til you need to register a child for school. To start the process, be absolutely sure that you have the following (each branch of service has slightly different requirements:

  • Air Force: PCS Orders with dependent names
  • Marine Corps: PCS Orders and Area Clearance with dependent names
  • Navy: PCS Orders and Dependent entry approval listing dependent names
  • Army: PCS Orders with dependent names
     

Okay, that was pretty easy. Now comes the hard part. In order to register your child, you’ll need to collect all of the following. You may be able to pre-register your child(ren) online at the DoD’s website, https://registration.dodea.edu/. However, you will still need to go to the school to complete the registration process.

  • Student’s passport or birth certificate (to verify age)
  • Student’s Social Security Number
  • Student’s immunization records -- be sure to get your seasonal flu shot
  • Certification of Immunization (DoDEA Form 2942) (take to Immunization Clinic to be signed by medical authority)
    Student Registration (DoDEA Form 600) 
  • Student Health History (DoDEA FORM 2942.0-M-F1)
  • Computer and Internet Access Agreement (DoDEA Form 6600.1-F2)
  • Questionnaire for Race/Ethnicity (DoDEA Form 600A)
  • ESL Home Language Questionnaire
  • Early Closing/Emergency Plan Form
  • Publicity Permission Form
  • Housing Assignment Letter, Off-Base Lease Agreement, or TLF Receipt
  • Previous school records for student

 

Please note that if your child is currently attending the school, you’ll have to re-register him or her, which means you’ll need to go through most of this again. Hopefully, it’ll be a little easier the second time.
