Deephaven Elementary is an excellent school with phenomenal teachers, an approachable principal, and very, very involved parents. We moved into the area three years ago, and were thrilled to wind up with such a wonderful neighborhood school. Our kids have been both in the accelerated programs and the more remedial programs, and we've found the staff to be wonderfully supportive of all kids.

This is our son's third year at Deephaven. What a fantastic experience this school has offered our child. The principal is visible, kind, seems to be very interactive with the kids. The teachers are top notch! The kids are challenge with a well structured curriculum, but they seem to still have fun. The art courses are well designed. The front support staff is informative , professional, and very kind always smiling. My child is happy , loves school , and most of all is receiving a great education.

Deephaven Elementary School is an excellent learning environment for the students. My granddaughter is in 1st grade. Her academic and creative talents are understood and developing at the pace she requires. The teachers are cognizant of each student's learning style and motivates each student to excel with excitement.

I could not be more impressed (and relieved) with the experience my child had at Deephaven this year. Engaged teacher who appeared to have a gift for divining the needs of each kindergartener; parent involvement that is off the charts; and discipline that hits just the right note. Excellent TAG (G&T) program that begins in first grade and goes through high school. The bilingual program (Spanish) that is slated to start in the fall has about a 40% participation rate in the first grade. I trust that Bryan McGinley (principal) will do as great a job with this major new program as he has with the rest of Deephaven. Great parent communication as well. Creative and fantastic art education - my kindergartener has been accumulating Kandinskys and Van Goghs as a result of her exposure.
