Welcome to George Marks Elementary School. Located in DeLand, Florida, the school was built in 1955 and has provided quality education to thousands of residents. Many of our student's parents and grandparents attended George Marks Elementary. We currently serve over 570 students in kindergarten through fifth grades. In addition to our regular education programs we also provide gifted classes and exceptional student education support. Our staff is dedicated to serving our students, and our faculty provides daily educational experiences which actively engage our students. Our mission: "Through the cooperative support of the school, family, and community, our students will develop academic and citizenship skills to become productive members of society."
As a family-oriented school many activities occur throughout the school year including our Bulldog Bonanza, skate nights, and student musical performances. Our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) sponsors our Grandparents' Night, Delightful Desserts for Marvelous Moms, Dogs for Dads, Spring Fling, and various book nights. Our PTA and School Advisory Council (SAC) are great organizations that support school and family projects and provide a way for you to join us in educating your child.
Thank you for visiting our website. We are pleased to have the opportunity to serve your child and your family at George Marks Elementary, where everyone succeeds together.
