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.

Students in Mrs. Felicetti’s class at Deauville Gardens West Elementary School have been engaging in STEM-based activities to explore their creative side from home by creating mobiles. After learning about the four types of clouds, one student created a mobile featuring feathery clouds that can twist and turn in a gentle breeze. Following the study of galaxies and learning that they are a grouping of stars, another student found some materials from around the house to create a galactic mobile.
