Overseas American Sponsored Elementary and Secondary Schools Assisted by the U.S. Department of State.
Department of State, Washington, DC. Office of Overseas Schools.
The Office of Overseas Schools of the United States Department of State provides assistance to independent overseas schools which meet certain legislative criteria. The basic purposes of the assistance are to ensure that adequate educational opportunities exist for the dependents of government personnel stationed overseas, and to encourage and assist schools which demonstrate United States educational philosophy and practice within the countries in which they are located. The directory covers five geographic areas (Europe, Africa, Near East and South Asia, East Asia, and American Republics) with specific geographic locations listed alphabetically under each main area. The name and title of each school's chief administrator and the name, address, and telephone number of the school are given under each location listed. Also listed are the enrollment, the grades included in the regular program, and whether supervised correspondence work is offered at certain grade levels. The lists include the names and addresses of overseas schools which received direct or indirect assistance from the Office of Overseas Schools in Fiscal Year 1985. (BZ)
