Welcome to DeGrazia Elementary
Welcome to DeGrazia Elementary, home of the Dust Devils! DeGrazia has a rich history of providing the highest quality education possible for our children. We partner with our families and community to develop the ‘whole child’. We want our students to think critically, problem solve, work collaboratively, and be able to persevere in a globally competitive world.
DeGrazia offers full day FREE kindergarten, before and after school care, gifted and special education, a variety of electives, science fair, and ‘walk-to math’ acceleration, full-time Master level school counselor, health services, librarian, music, arts, physical education, and more. DeGrazia was also awarded the prestigious 21st CCLC grant, providing funds toward before and after school enrichment clubs and intervention opportunities and programs for students. Throughout the year, we offer monthly community times, musical performances, field day, and career day. We also have an active PTO and student council who sponsor numerous events that bring our community together.
Our school provides a diverse educational experience for the 21st century by incorporating student Chromebooks and collaborative comfortable configurable furniture (Fall 2018), into comprehensive, relevant and rigorous instruction. In Marana schools, the core focus is not simply to ensure that students are taught, but to ensure that they learn. Students are challenged, relationships are built, and teaching is focused on individual student achievement.
We believe when you come and visit our school, talk to our students and their families, and spend time with our faculty and staff you will hear and see how much we care about our community. We hope you will join the DeGrazia Family and make it your home!
