Dunedin Elementary is a safe and happy place for students. The new principal has done an amazing job at making the school a positive place to be. The teachers are high quality and my son has made tremendous learning gains. Dunedin Elementary has a Dual Language Program (English/Spanish) that is rigorous and has transformed students into fantastic speakers, readers, and writers in both languages. The Dunedin ES school community is very supportive and families are truly committed to the education of their children. I truly recommend this school to any family!!!

My school is Dunedin Elementary School and I love it there. The teachers are the best around. They go above and beyond to help their students. I wouldn't change schools for anything.

My granddaughter will surely miss the excellent teachers, staff, and friends at Dunedin Elementary School. Mr. Peterson, the great bucket drumming teacher, is the VERY best. Hope all have had a great summer. Diana, Sierra, Stacey

My son started this yr on pre-k and he hated it! I had to transfered him to another school, he will complain about other kids being mean to him, but the teacher never seemed to noticed. The teacher was not very opened to parents and kind of build up a wall, maybe it was just with us bec of language barriers..I don't know. I had a previous experience at this school with my oldest son who has learning disabilities and it was a terrible. I felt like I was being blamed bec my son was not able to learn as the other kids. And my son's self steem and confidence was crushed bec he felt he was not good enough. His friends kept moving on but he was retained on the same grade, bec he could not read at grade level, but he was excellent in math.

I'm very disappointed in Dunedin. There are serious behavior issues and bullying is tolerated too often by teachers who don't care. My child is going to another school next year, and I can't wait for this year to be over.

Terrific, caring administration. Great ancillary staff. Teachers are a mixed bag-- some are absolutely fabulous, a few are so burnt-out they're crispy. The students are a mixed bag as well-- a lot of them come to school carrying far more baggage than any child ever should have, and it shows in behavior. Extracurriculars are fewer than elsewhere in this part of county. The PTA does what it can, but just doesn't have the financial or parental resources of the schools in Palm Harbor or East Lake.

My son went to a pinellas county charter and hated it, but when I transferred into Dunedin it was a warm friendly environment my son loves this school and cried when school ended! I can't wait to go back to their new facilities this fall.

Dunedin Elementary was a great experience for my three children. They all did very well academically as well as in extra curricular activities. The teachers are very caring and willing to go beyond the scope of their job description. One of my children was enrolled in the gifted program, which was absolutely wonderful. He did exceptionally well and was better prepared for middle school. The level of parent involvement is average to high, they all seem to care and try to get involved as much as possible. I would recommend this school to families new to the area or who are thinking of moving to Florida. We miss it!

I have 2 1st graders and 1 2nd grader. This was their first year at Dunedin Elementary. All my children love their teachers. Each teacher has been there for at least 15-20 years. I helped to volunteer with one of the classes and was impressed with the learning style and helpfulness of the teacher. The PTA is constantly coming up with new activities (as well as repeat activities) for the parents and their children, such as carnivals, movie nights, etc.

Dunedin Elementary has been a wonderful experience for my daughter whom has attended since Kindergarten. She is in the gifted program, both Mrs. Cobb and Mrs. Thode have been outstanding. Mrs. Jameson each year does a wonderful job with the art show and not only teaches art to the students but educates them about the area they are studying. The office staff are extremely helpful and courteous. All of the teachers have been very involved.
