    The vision of Everette L. DeGolyer Elementary School is to create a learning environment that provides opportunities that encourage students to become independent learners, critical thinkers, decision makers, problem solvers, and lifelong learners and respect and appreciate cultural diversity.
    E.L. DeGolyer is defined by high expectations for all stakeholders—staff, students, parents, and the community—and students' academic success. We are committed to working with families and students to address academic, health, attendance, and character development issues. Parents are encouraged to be active participants in their child's education, as well as the PTA and DeGolyer Dads' Club.
    In an effort to improve student achievement, the DeGolyer staff has taken great strides to increase collaborative planning and effective instruction, the constant evaluation of student learning and achievement, and the implementation of interventions for students who are having difficulty in and out of school. Our school mission for the year encapsulates our commitment: "To meet the diverse educational needs of all DeGolyer students." We look forward to a year of unprecedented growth for our students.
