Welcome to Dey Elementary School, a fully accredited school!

We are pleased to have you as a part of our school family. John B. Dey continues to embrace the adventure of learning through 21st century methodologies and innovations allowing each student to experience high levels of critical thinking and problem solving. In fact, over the past three years, we have received 13 Educational Innovation grants from the Virginia Beach Education Foundation totaling more $15,000. These grants focused on science, technology, engineering, math, and literacy.

As an elementary school student, your child will undergo many changes during their years here. There will be new friends, new teachers, new knowledge, and a variety of opportunities. At Dey, our students are at the heart of every decision. Everything we do is about ensuring their experiences here help them to develop in a caring, supportive environment with great teachers and staff at the center of the school. We have high expectations and high aspirations for every one of our students and our vision is that our students aspire to be the best they can be.
