Deauville Gardens East Elementary School serves approximately 450 students from kindergarten through grade five and provides a variety of experiences to support the social, emotional and academic well-being of students. The collaborative atmosphere, well-trained and highly qualified staff and student-centered philosophy foster an environment which truly benefits children.

In order to provide a meaningful and effective education, maximize student growth and meet the requirements of the Common Core Standards, a variety of programs and approaches are utilized. Guided Reading is the foundation of the Balanced Literacy program that is embraced in order to challenge each individual student at his or her appropriate level. Math is taught by allowing students to experiment with concepts and create their own understanding of material. In addition, a number of after-school programs and clubs present students with opportunities to explore new interests.

At Deauville Gardens East, we recognize that a strong partnership between the school and home is essential for a positive and productive educational experience. Staff members work closely with the PTA and families to provide enriching experiences for students both inside and outside of the classroom.

Students in Ms. Newman’s fourth grade class at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School recently completed a Junk Bot challenge. After learning about recycling, students discussed ways they can be creative using different types of trash that would otherwise be thrown in the garbage. Students were challenged to collect items and use them to create a Junk Bot. Students created sketches of initial designs, and used problem-solving and critical thinking skills to assemble their Junk Bot projects. To complete the challenge, the students wrote creative stories about their Junk Bots.
