The Cypress Street Elementary School (also known as the Bonner Elementary School) is a historic school in Daytona Beach, Florida, United States. It is located at 868 West George W Engram Blvd. It was built in 1926. Initially, the school consisted of a two-story block and stucco building with two brick wings.

The school’s name was changed in 1954 to honor its first and longest-serving principal, Evelyn Bonner, who headed the school from 1927 to 1959. Before her tenure at Cypress Street Elementary, Ms. Bonner taught at Campbell Elementary for 16 years. Following her retirement, Ms. Bonner continued to visit the school almost daily until her death in 1977 at the age of 85. Bonner Elementary School was one of several Volusia County schools closed in 2008. The building currently houses Chiles Academy, a charter high school for teen parents and their children.

On December 2, 1996, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

This property is part of the Daytona Beach Multiple Property Submission, a Multiple Property Submission to the National Register.
