Learning to Live. Living to Learn.

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 2015 Double Churches Elementary School celebrated our 130th 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”.

The Muscogee County School District is committed to providing educational experiences that will enable each student to become a lifelong learner, enter the work force with necessary skills and achieve academic and personal potential.
