Dever Elementary School

The Paul A. Dever Elementary School serves families from diverse cultural, economic and linguistic backgrounds. We believe all students deserve access to a world class education that will allow them to excel in college, careers and beyond. We expect every student to be prepared for higher education, which means that all students will meet or exceed the academic standards required at their grade level.

We have a safe, collaborative atmosphere where students, staff, parents, and the community are respected, appreciated, encouraged, and supported. With talented and committed teachers and leaders, individualized supports to meet students’ diverse learning needs, a supportive and caring learning environment, and a culture of high expectations for academic excellence we ensure all students at Dever Elementary can reach their full potential.
