Returning Seoul American Elementary students must re-register at SAES each school year. New students must first register in Room 121 at the Community Service Building (#4106 DSN: 738-7707) before registering at SAES.
Parents must bring the following information for all new and returning students.
Registration forms are available on the Korea District Superintendent's web site.

Sponsor's orders and extension orders (if applicable)

Previous school records (first time students only. Bring to school NOT Community Services Building)

Social Security number for student

Birth certificate or Passport (KN and 1st grade only)

Immunization records for student

The nurses will need to review your child's most recent shot record. A TB test dated after March 1, 2002 is required to attend the 2002-2003 school year.

Also: You must provide an emergency contact for your child during registration. Some suggestions are:

If you are new to the area, try to use someone in the sponsor's office until you are moved into quarters. Then you may change it to a neighbor once you are settled.

If you are returning, make sure your current emergency contact has not PCS'd or will not PCS soon


The Seoul Student Transportation Office (STO) ( located at BLDG S-4106, the new ACS Bldg ) is here to serve your community with safe and reliable student transportation services. Some of our duties include coordinating transportation for daily commuting, extracurricular events (sporting events...etc), curricular events (required field trips), after school activity buses, the cooperative work experience program, and special needs students. We provide bus safety training to preschool through grade 8 students and develop inclement weather response plans. The Seoul STO conducts safety/operation inspections on all buses, bus routes, and bus stops used for busing. We also work closely with school administrators and military commands to establish commuting/walking zones, and investigate/resolve all student behavior concerns on our vehicles.


Parents are reminded that :
a) Registration for the next school year will be held during the Spring at Hannam Village and the High School      Gym. Each school will forward more information at a later date.
b) To register for transportation you will need to bring a copy of the 600 for each student. All students must      have a new/updated photo taken prior to being issued a bus pass.
c) For safety and security reasons students are required to show a bus pass when entering the bus to/from      school, and are only authorized to ride their assigned bus route. Students must also ride their assigned
    school bus for safety and security reasons. Failure to do so could result in a 5-day suspension from the
    school bus.
d) Please consult the Seoul Student Transportation Office for details on the area walking/commuting zones
    prior to entering into a rental agreement.

If you have any questions please contact the Seoul Student Transportation Office at DSN (738-5032 or commercial at 02-7918-5032).
