Learning to Live. Living to Learn.
| MCSD Web Site | DESTINYat D.C.E| DCE PTA Web Site |

Welcome to the Double Churches Elementary web site. D.C.E. is a Pre-K through 5th grade public school located in Columbus, Georgia. We hope that you will take the time to find out more about us, and we would love for you to come visit our campus and find out why D.C.E. is the place to be!

We believe all students learn when provided high quality instruction that is engaging and challenging. We strive to keep our students challenged and engaged by incorporating research-based literacy and mathematics learning. With the help of the Cornerstone Literacy Framework, guided by the Common Core Standards, we endeavor to provide a literacy-rich environment where your children are encouraged “to read, to write, to think critically, to reason, to analyze and evaluate information, to communicate effectively in a variety of forms, and to inquire systematically into any important matter”. That is literacy; and literacy is critical to full participation in a democratic society.”

In 2010 Double Churches Elementary School celebrated our 125th Anniversary. During Double Churches Elementary School’s existence there have been many changes. However, one constant remains-Double Churches Elementary is an outstanding school with a reputation for achievement. At Double Churches Elementary School we are “Learning to Live and Living to Learn”.

    School Climate Survey
    The Georgia Parent Survey contains 24 questions. Parents can complete the survey using their personal computers, smartphones or iPads. For parents that do not have access to the Internet, they may complete the Georgia Parent Survey at Double Churches Elementary from 7:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. Data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.

    Please click on the link the Georgia Parent Survey.


    Federal law requires that the student survey questions be made available for review by all interested parties. Please click on the link for more information about the Student Health Survey 2.0.
