Great Neck Road Elementary School provides a challenging and supportive academic program for approximately 525 students in kindergarten through grade five. The faculty at Great Neck Road works closely with students in many areas to instill in them a lifelong desire to learn.
Great Neck Road teachers and staff are involved in several educational initiatives dedicated to promoting creative and critical thinking and to achieve grade level proficiency in reading, mathematics, and English Language Arts. In addition to the strong support programs dedicated to assisting students in need, there is also a renowned Talented and Gifted program which provides students with an opportunity to explore subjects beyond the scope of the standard curriculum.
In addition, with help from the school's very active PTA, students are involved in numerous academic, social, and cultural programs, as well as family-oriented events and activities throughout the school year.

The students at Great Neck Road Elementary School are gearing up for summer break with 18 days of fun in June. Starting June 1 and running through their last day of school on June 24, each day is themed with a different fun activity. From the bubble day kickoff to red, white and blue colors on Flag Day, students had the chance to have some fun with the different themes. There was a sports day, silly socks and sunglasses, tie dye day and, of course, crazy hair day. On June 16, the students wrote thank-you cards to those in the school who helped them the most. The younger grades colored crowns and delivered them to their favorite nurse, food service worker, secretary and more, while the older students wrote letters on their Chromebooks.
