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.

As part of the opening ceremony in the auditorium, Dr. Bannon invited select groups of students to the stage to speak about their unique experiences in the school district. Members of the Walter G.

Deauville Gardens East Elementary School recently held a family literacy night for students in grades three through five. After listening to the read aloud “After the Fall: How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again” by Dan Santat, the students participated in a paper airplane STEM challenge. In the read aloud, Humpty showed persistence and determination in creating a paper airplane because he is too afraid to climb the wall again and misses being close to the birds. They created a paper airplane and tested it out. The students then had to adjust their plane in some way and test it out again to see how their adjustment effected the flight of the plane.
