    Great Neck Elementary School is just a short walk from beautiful Pleasure Beach.  We are a K-5 school with an enrollment of just over 300 students and are entering our eighth year in the new Great Neck Elementary School.  Our school is very fortunate to have an active and supportive PTA.  There are numerous family events planned throughout the year such as the Back to School Picnic, Fall & Spring Book Fairs, Pasta Dinner and cultural programs for all grade levels.  We also offer numerous after school activities such as Creative Writing, Drama Club, Karate, Yoga & Mindfulness, Chess Club, Floor Hockey, Flag Football, Winter Games and Basketball.
    Great Neck Elementary School is most proud of its strong sense of community.  We have a very involved Student Council and a Character Education Program that seeks to recognize students for their contributions to the well-being of our school community.  All of the students in Fifth Grade are trained as peer mentors. They spend approximately one half hour per week working with a younger student or a group of students in academic or social settings.
    The school motto is, “Great Neck Elementary School Has Kids Who Smile.”  We are committed to making our school a place of high academic achievement, one with a strong sense of community and a school where students and staff want to work and learn together.
