Dailard Elementary School 5

Having been associated with Dailard for the last six years as a grandmother I have found this school to be an outstanding example of a public school. The teachers have been consistently good, encouraging learning, caring for the students as individuals, offering their own creativity while working within the core requirements. The administrators, secretaries, custodians and staff have been supportive. The parents have been willing to help whenever needed. Everyone is working together for the education and welfare of our children. Keep up the good work.

We moved here from Marvin ( in same district) and are so impressed. My daughter went from not being able to read to almost catching up completely. She gets great help from teachers and aides. No school is perfect, but this is a good place, with good people that care. The teachers help prep my 5th grader and he had such a better middle school experience than my other student that was promoted from Marvin. We are now having our youngest start at Dailard and they offer a kinder camp that will not only help them get used to the way kindergarten is but also introduce them to some of the children.

We have been very pleased with this school over the last 3 years. We now have 2 students attending. Great parent and teacher involvement. The Dads group is fantastic; they support the kids in so many ways. The new principal (Mr. McDade) has done a great job. He is approachable, and friendly - and really seems to know his way around getting things done within the district.

My kids have all attended from K to graduation. I have CHOICEd them in since K and Dailard is so worth the drive. The kids have all super excelled and are testing very very well. All of them are reading 3+ years above grade level. The last principal, Mr Erpelding, was awesome, but I am not too sure about the incoming principal. I'll wait and see, and give him a chance. Overall, great experience academically and socially!

My daughter is finishing her 1st year (kinder) at Dailard. Overall, we are very happy with the school and principal- his enthusiasm and dedication has a great effect. We really like her teacher too. I agree with another that said the afterschool program is not very good - it is not run by Dailard, it is run by the Y. We had her in it for awhile (part time) then were fortunate to find family to provide care and withdrew after a few months. The coordinators don't engage much and in Sept, they were very disorganized- not comforting to parents of a new kindergartner. Hopefully things will improve with next year's Y program. In the meantime, we look forward to 1st grade as Dailard dolphins! ;)
