Our School

Donley Elementary School is a family-oriented, student-centered, DK-5 learning environment that served about 300 students in Developmental Kindergarten through fifth grade.  We are proud of our diverse cultural and economic student population at Donley and within the East Lansing School District. Donley Elementary School provides a comprehensive educational program that focuses on providing a quality educational opportunity for all students. This is made possible through the services of a strong instructional team.

We maintain that children learn best in an environment where there are relationships between the students, staff, and parents based on mutual respect and trust. We continue to incorporate the Donley Code - Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be a Learner – as a guide when working together in the classroom, on the playground and throughout the school. This year we continued implementing a Multi-tiered System of Support (MTSS) that includes a data driven focus on behavior and reading.
