Deauville Gardens West 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 before-school programs and clubs present students with opportunities to explore new interests.

At Deauville Gardens West, 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.

Second graders at Deauville Gardens West Elementary School conducted a hands-on experiment tied to their lessons on the different states of matter. After learning about solids, liquids and gases, the students predicted what would happen during an experiment when they put an antacid tablet into a plastic water bottle with a balloon on top. They quickly discovered that the tablet produced a gas that blew up the balloon. The students also created bulletin boards to identify solids, liquids and gases found throughout their classrooms.

The first graders in Ms. Howe’s and Ms. Cunha and Ms. Skurnick’s classes at Deauville Gardens West Elementary School designed their own monster creations as part of a monster match project. Each class teamed up with a school from another location in New York State. Each class created their own monster and then sent directions to their partner school on how to design their monster. The partner schools also created a monster and sent the Copiague first graders step-by-step instructions to make their monster. The two classes will meet via Zoom to see if their monster match up to their directions.
