The Deerfield Beach Literacy Team’s objective is to challenge students to become the best they can be. We strive to individualize instruction, through differentiated instruction, in order to maximize our students’ learning potential. We nurture our students’ academic growth with academic rigor and research-based teaching and learning strategies.

  • Provide a safe and comfortable learning environment for success as well as failure, while promoting physical and mental well-being.
  • Develop life-long learners.
  • Offer opportunities to develop moral and ethical citizens and leaders.
