Welcome to Diehl School

John C. Diehl Elementary School - Home of the Eagles  
John C. Diehl Elementary School is a neighborhood public elementary school located at 2327 Fairmont Parkway in Erie, Pennsylvania. We currently have 510 students in grades Kindergarten through Grade Eight.

Our school focuses on meeting the needs of each of our students while teaching a specific sequence of content in each grade level. Diehl Elementary School’s curriculum parallels the recently adopted PA Common Core Standards. These standards require a rigorous and comprehensive academic curriculum and range of subjects including:  World History, Geography, American History, the Sciences, Literature, Writing, Mathematics, Visual Arts, and Music.

Diehl Elementary School embraces diversity.  The children and families in our school community are a diverse cross section of many different cultures, ethnic groups and languages. Seventy-two percent of the school population is comprised of minority students.  Thirty-five percent of our students are African American; 27.7% are Caucasian; 18.8% are Hispanic; and 18.5% are of other ethnic groups.  John C. Diehl Elementary School has an English as a Second Language Program. We educate children from 24 different countries, who speak 15 different languages. The students speak Bosnian, Spanish, Arabic, Albanian, Russian, Ukrainian, Sudanese, Somalian, Swahili, French, Kirundi, Bantu, Burmese, Vietnamese, Nepali, and Mai-Mai.

John C. Diehl Elementary School has twenty-three dedicated and experienced classroom teachers, four special education teachers, and two School-Wide Specialists who provide special help in Reading and Math. We also have two full-time teachers who provide instruction for our English Language Learners.  Our related arts teachers provide music, art, and physical education classes on a weekly basis.  In addition, we have a guidance counselor and a speech therapist. Our school operates on the full-inclusion model. This allows us to accommodate children's special needs within the regular classroom.

Car Challenge

engineering  

 
 
Each year grade 6 students at Diehl welcome engineering students from PSU Behrend. The students and their professors present a brief workshop for Diehl students providing an opportunity to work with computer design software and plastics engineering development and production. 
 
Students are asked what they would like to see in a custom designed race car. Once ideas have been discussed, engineering students and Diehl students discuss and design an actual race car. The design is produced and then put to the test.
