Our Mission Statement

"Bearing the Child in Mind"

At Douglas Park Elementary, we think that EVERY child can be a SUCCESSFUL LEARNER!

The DPES family promotes a schoolwide academic policy that supports a student-centered community where students develop academic, social and personal skills that will enable appropriate interaction in a safe and orderly environment.

We believe that all students:

  • Can learn and meet goals
  • Should be safe, respectful and responsible
  • Should be prepared to learn
