Deuel School District is centered within the city of Clear Lake, encompassing the communities of Clear Lake, Gary, Goodwin, Brandt, Altamont, and Bemis.

The district features one-to-one computing for students in grades K-12, one of the highest student/computer ratios in the country. Wireless computing throughout the campus, Smart Board Technology in every classroom, opportunities for advanced-placement and college credit classes, a four-day school week with opportunities for extra-help on Fridays or extended learning opportunities and many more innovative practices. Co-curricular opportunities range from almost any athletic pursuit to drama, oral interpretation, band and chorus, an art program and a variety of clubs for special interests.

Students in the district come from farming, manufacturing and business backgrounds and we are committed to providing them with a quality education providing the foundation for success in whatever endeavor students choose to follow after graduation.

Deuel Touch Wall

We are excited to have launched a digital archive with an interactive touch screen now located in the trophy case outside the competition gym at Deuel School. This touch screen has been in the making for several years. Initially the project started with preserving and presenting the high school senior composites in the new addition. We will now be able to honor and archive our academic, athletic, and extracurricular achievements and history of our school district. 
The contents can not only be enjoyed on the touch screen at the school, but online, outside of the school walls. You may also find this link to the touch wall on the home page icon panel of the district website. Here is the link: Go to Touch Wall!
We will publish more information as we expand the archive. Eventually patrons will be able to search a directory by student name to bring up individual accomplishments, or just search by year, sport or accomplishment. For now, we hope you enjoy the composite photographs and yearbook archive.
