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.

Fourth-graders at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School recently completed their English Language Arts module on the Iroquois.
The students in Jennifer Spizuco’s class and Jennifer Kelly’s class showed off their creativity and design capabilities when they were tasked with building their own longhouses as part of an extra credit assignment. The students displayed their creations – and spoke about different longhouse facts – during a gallery walk in the cafeteria on Nov. 21.
