James A. Dever Elementary School

Mr. Darren Gruen, Principal
James A. Dever School

Welcome to the James A. Dever Elementary School
At Dever, community and family are cornerstones of what makes our school so special. The faculty and staff, along with the administration, are intensely committed to working together with parents and caregivers, and the greater Valley Stream Thirteen community, to provide the children with nothing but the best we have to offer.The first thing that strikes you when you come to Dever is that our school is a happy place. You are greeted with a smile and everyone is ready and willing to lend a helping hand. The faculty and staff are intently collegial, and each works diligently to foster this sense of community. Additionally, they take very personally the task at hand - to ensure that each and every child develops to their fullest potential; academically, socially, and emotionally. Ask any child, and they will tell you that they love their school, and more importantly, that they are excited and love to come to school. It is here that they find a challenging and nurturing environment in which to test their abilities, make explorations and discoveries, construct meaning, and to make achievements that they can be proud of and celebrate. Ask any parent, and they will tell you that Dever provides opportunities for everyone to participate in and to be a part of this special learning community. Our extremely active parents work cooperatively with the school to enrich our children's educational experience, both during and after school. We encourage citizenship and courtesy, along with caring and sharing.
