About Deep Creek-Damascus K-8

  • Together, we prepare, challenge, and support students for participation in society as
    safe, respectful, and responsible, lifelong learners.

    We Believe:

    • all students are capable of learning.
    • education is a responsibility shared by students, staff, parents, and community.
    • in recognizing individual learning styles.
    • in providing opportunities for all students to experience success.
    • that students are entitled to learn in a safe environment.

    We are committed to high quality, developmentally appropriate, K-8 level education
    characterized by:

    • Quality work and relevant learning through challenging integrated curriculum,
      instruction, and assessment.
    • Relationships that promote trust and safety (physical, emotional, and social)
      needed for learning and well being.
    • Opportunities for all to succeed through core, exploratory, and co-curricular
    • Respectful partnerships through "heroic" customer service and communication.
    • Development of personal responsibility and accountability through opportunities
      for significant choice and decisions related to learning.
    • High expectations for all who are involved in K-8 level education.


    • Continue to provide exceptional academic opportunities to all students by
      assessing and addressing student needs and learning through sound
      instruction and monitoring.
    • Every student will show individual growth during the 2015-16 school year.
    • Develop opportunities to assist individual students in specific areas of
      academic need and enrichment.
    • Create a positive and nurturing school environment that respects individual
      differences and promotes student achievement.


    Deep Creek-Damascus K-8 School is special because of a strong commitment to
    excellence and providing the best possible education for all students. The strong
    academic program is supported by the close partnership that is present with parents and
    community to support the education of the students. A small rural setting and close-knit
    community provide an excellent environment for this to occur.
