    Welcome. Dewey International Studies Elementary School is a unique school that integrates the study of world languages into the elementary curriculum.  Dewey offers the following world languages: Japanese, German, French 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 and Gifted. Dewey also has numerous partnerships including University of Missouri-St. Louis, Washington 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. If you would like to schedule a visit, please contact me at

  • We will have 2 events to start off the school year.   Open House will be on August 15th from 1:00 P.M. - 5:00 P.M.   This is a wonderful opportunity to meet the teacher, drop off supplies, and finalize registration.  On August 22nd we will have our Back to School Night.   This is another great opportunity to meet administration, teachers, learn how to assist your child at home, become familiar with curriculum materials, online resources, and other wonderful tools to utilize throughout the year.   We will also have a speaker addressing internet safety and social media.   Save the dates! We are very excited to meet with you as we begin the new school year! OPEN HOUSE
