Low class size, motivated students, strong parental support, ample resources,
strong technology, and a beautiful and climate-controlled learning environment. Does is sound like teachers' paradise?
Well, yes, we may be a bit smug about what we have to offer teacher candidates here on Kwajalein. But

The Kwajalein Schools
are located on Kwajalein Atoll in the Republic of the Marshall Islands. Kwajalein is a U.S. military installation administered
by the U.S. Army and is subject to military rules and regulations. Kwajalein Range Services, a private corporation contracted
to provide a variety of support services for the resident population, operates the schools. The schools serve approximately
400 dependent children of the U.S. citizens residing on Kwajalein. About 15 percent of the students are from military
families and the remainder come from homes of civilian residents working on the Range.
Residents enjoy many of the
amenities found only in much larger communities in the United States. There are swimming pools, beaches, a 9-hole 3,000-yard
golf course, two movie theaters, tennis and handball courts, a bowling alley, a marina, modern stores, bank, and social, cultural,
and educational organizations that are designed for a broad range of interests. Opportunities for water-related outdoor
The schools employ approximately 45 staff members and enjoy a classroom teacher-to-student ratio
of approximately 15 to 1. Kwajalein schools tend to be highly academic in nature with strong emphasis on the basic skills
at the elementary level and college preparatory emphasis in the secondary school. School is in session for 180 days
each year. Kwajalein students consistently out-perform the Department of Defense and stateside norms on the ITBS, ITED,
SAT, and other similar examinations.
However, Kwaj is not for everyone. We are a small town on a tiny, remote
Pacific island. People who thrive on the bustle of a city and hours in the shopping mall should carefully consider this
aspect of Kwajalein life before making application.
