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 FREE full-day 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. 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 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.
As a Marzano High Reliability School that has achieved Level 1 certification, creating a Safe, Supportive, and Collaborative culture, we are committed to transforming our school into an organization that takes proactive steps to ensure student success. Level 1 certification is the foundation for every level that follows. Without such a culture, student achievement will be compromised.
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!
