About

Welcome to the Dexter Early Elementary Complex!

The DEEC ("pronounced "Decl") serves students in Young 5 through 2nd grade as well as early childhood special education students.  The complex has two wings: Anchor Elementary and Beacon Elementary, which are joined by two large shared spaces, the marketplace and workshop. Brooke Stidham is the principal, with her office located at Beacon, and Katie Heikkila is the Assistant Principal, with her office at Anchor. Our collective mission is to provide a quality education for all students.

We are so proud of the students who come here to learn each day. Our staff believe children learn best when they feel safe and respected, and when they believe they are valued members of a caring school community.  We work every day to encourage a love for learning as we surround each child with a rich and stimulating curriculum.

We take pride in:
  • Highly skilled teachers, para-educators and support staff

  • Ongoing staff development

  • Our wonderful parent teacher group

We are so glad you could join us!
