About this school

Dewey is a school with a neighborhood feel that serves grades K-4 where 88% of the students have a parent serving in the military. Most children walk to school which encourages parents to socialize and become involved in the everyday workings of the school. We value parent involvement and have a strong PTO. We have a supportive and caring staff who are committed to helping students grow academically as well as socially. We are also very excited to be undergoing bathroom remodeling this summer!
