Schools: School age children attend the Department of Defense Dependent Schools within the Kaiserslautern Military Community (KMC). The KMC is the largest school district outside the continental United States, with 20 schools, approximately 7960 students, and a teaching staff of 500. All schools are located near government housing areas. The school your child(ren) attends will depend on where you live, not where you work.
