    Amy Novak is in her third year at Don Brewer Elementary School, having moved over from Mayport Elementary in the summer of 2020. She has served the school district in many different capacities, including as a teacher of students with disabilities, assistant principal and principal. She is truly dedicated to her work and has brought her unique talents to Don Brewer to bring the Bobcats to excellence in STEM learning!
    Don Brewer Elementary celebrates its 20th year of serving the children of the Arlington area. The school is unique in that it is only one of two intermediate schools in Duval County. Serving third, fourth, and fifth graders, Don Brewer Elementary’s sister school is Merrill Road Elementary, which is also located on Hartsfield Road.

    Students who attend Don Brewer Elementary are afforded a standards-based education, in which teachers provide scaffolded instruction to ensure that students develop into independent learners.  We also have full-time art, music, and PE teachers who work to support our goal of educating the whole child. The school has a part-time media specialist who works to support students in media and technology. Don Brewer Elementary is a gifted site for the Arlington area. 

    The faculty and staff work to fulfill the district’s mission, which is to provide educational excellence in every school, in every classroom, for every student, every day.
