    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
