Primary and Secondary Education

Military dependent children, K-12, will attend the highly-praised Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) Pacific schools while in Guam. These include Andersen Elementary and Middle Schools on Andersen Air Force Base, McCool Elementary and Middle Schools on Naval Base Guam and Guam High School.

DoDEA Pacific students attending Guam High School produced a video that highlights academic rigor, sports, specialty programs, and extra-curricular activities available to military-connected students attending DoDEA schools in Guam. Students affiliated with the Panther News Network studio and video communications class wrote, directed, filmed, and edited the video to introduce Guam Schools to the world.
