About Dewey :
Dewey International Studies Elementary School is a unique school which integrates the study of world languages into the elementary curriculum. Dewey offers the following world languages: Chinese, German, Russian, and Spanish. Students begin world language studies at preschool with a rotation through each of the languages. Beginning in third grade, students specialize in a language of their choice. Additionally, each classroom at Dewey adopts a country of study to continue the international theme into the regular classroom. Teachers infuse the study of the adopted country into their standards-based curriculum.
Dewey offers a variety of resources including ELL, Gifted, and before/after school tutoring. Dewey also has numerous partnerships including University of Missouri-St. Louis, Washington University, Fontbonne University, Webster University, Junior Achievement, Books & Badges, HomeWorks!, and OASIS. The PTO at Dewey is very active and involves our parents as partners at the school.
