All DoDEA schools are accredited by an outside regional agency, in order to ensure that each school meets expectations for quality programs, staff and facilities. Bamberg Elementary School is fully accredited by the North Central Association. Our school improvement plan is an ongoing process. Parents are an important component in that process.

Besides being used for Physical Education, the gym also serves as the cafeteria and the venue for artistic performances, assemblies, and community events.
The school reading program is enhanced with Accelerated Reading, which is a system of self paced reading. Students check out books from the library, read them, then take a quiz over the content. This gives them practice reading...and, the more you read the better you are at reading.
