WT Sampson Unit School is a K-12 DoDDS (Department of Defense Dependents Schools) school located in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Our school provides education opportunities for GTMO’s students from Sure Start through 12th grade. Our students are primarily the children of military and civilian families stationed here at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
We are accredited by the North Central Association, Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI). NCA CASI is part of the unified organization AdvancED whose focus is to help member schools continually improve student performance and school conditions. Our mission is to educate, engage, and empower each student to succeed in a dynamic world. We envision a technologically sophisticated learning environment, supported by our families and community, where all students attain their highest levels of success. Where understanding and appreciating diversity is an integral part of the learning process; thereby, empowering all students to become physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy citizens of the global community.
Although officially designated as a Unit School, WT Sampson is actually located on two separate campuses about 2 miles apart. Currently, there are approximately 130 students at the elementary school (SS through 5th grade) and 90 students (6th through 12th grade) at the secondary campus. Despite our small size, WT Sampson provides all students with the highest quality of education and a safe environment. The dedicated and highly qualified faculty remains focused on the mission, vision, and philosophy of our school.
