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.
Deauville Gardens West’s pumpkin launch event was on Newsday.com and News 12…Check us out:
Incoming kindergartners had the opportunity to get a first peek at their buildings, meet with their teachers and connect with their new classmates during orientations at Susan E. Wiley, Great Neck Road, Deauville Gardens East and Deauville Gardens West elementary schools in the Copiague School District on Aug. 26.
At each respective elementary school, students and their parents received a brief overview of the district’s curriculum, what to expect in kindergarten and the school’s policies and procedures. In an effort to alleviate some first day of school jitters, the students saw their classrooms, and toured the building to familiarize themselves with their new routines in September.
Excitement filled the air as the Copiague School District students made their way into the buildings for the start of the 2021-2022 school year on Sept. 2. The district’s youngest students were accompanied off their buses and guided to their classrooms. Administrators were front and center at the buildings to welcome the students back. The sixth and ninth graders quickly got acquainted with their new buildings and schedules as well. Students reconnected with their classmates and built new friendships as well. As the day went on, students eased into their new schedules and routines and settled in for a productive year ahead.
