Deer Path School

  • Welcome to Deer Path School's website, a collaborative effort between our district and parent volunteers.  I hope that you find this site to be a valuable communication tool between school and home.
    Deer Path School was built in 1998 and currently hosts 1st through 5th grade students, as well as the district’s ECE program. In all, Deer Path welcomes more than 500 students to our classrooms each day.
    We receive tremendous support from our parents and community. Whether it is sponsoring a monthly family event or supplementing the curriculum, the Deer Path PTO actively assists our students, families and staff in many ways. We greatly appreciate this partnership. I invite you to learn more about our PTO and all they offer our school by attending a monthly PTO meeting.
    Our talented and dedicated staff help build a strong academic foundation for our students that is evidenced in how well our students perform in state and national assessments. This is also due to the collaboration of the staff and families. We look forward to our continued academic excellence while meeting the challenges and needs of all our students.
    If you have any questions regarding Deer Path School or if you would like to volunteer, I invite you to contact me at 224-357-5350 or via email at
