AWESOME PLACE TO SEND YOUR CHILD!!!NOTHING BUT GOOD THINGS ABOUT THIS SCHOOL!!!MY DAUGHTER HAS BEEN ATTENDING HERE SINCE KINDERGARTEN AND IS NOW IN 5TH GRADE AND LOVES TO GO EVERY DAY. SHE WOULD EVEN TRY TO GO WHEN SHE IS SICK. THE TEACHERS ARE FABULOUS AND THE ATMOSPHERE IS POSITIVE AND INVITING TO THE PARENTS. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO EVERY PARENT..
THANK YOU TO ALL THE TEACHERS AND ESPECIALLY THE ONES THAT MY DAUGHTER HAS HAD. BECAUSE OF YOU I HAVE A WELL ROUNDED LOVELY YOUNG LADY THAT LOVES TO COME TO SCHOOL EVERY DAY. SHE WILL BE ENTERING MIDDLE SCHOOL SOON, AS THIS IS HER LAST YEAR AT DUNNELLON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND SHE WILL SADLY MISS IT THERE. WHAT A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE FOR BOTH OF US..
THE TEACHERS AND STAFF AT THIS SCHOOL GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND ANY PUBLIC SCHOOL WHEN IT COMES TO TREATING THE STUDENTS WITH FAIRNESS, HONESTY AND INTEGRITY. THE PRINCIPAL AND VICE PRINCIPAL ARE AN AWESOME TEAM AND REALLY KNOW HOW TO MAKE A PARENT FEEL WELCOME HERE.
My son has been attending DES since Kindergarten, he is currently in 4th grade. He was diagnosed with ADHD in 3rd grade and all of his teachers worked well with him and his diagnosis. Even before medication came into play, the teachers worked one on one with him to accommodate his style of learning. Instead of pushing him to the side they found a way to engage his mind and develop interest into the activity they were working on. Not just the teachers but all the staff are friendly from office staff to nursing staff! As a parent I feel at ease sending him to DES every day! They are terrific!
i don't like this school at all . it like a military school teaches are all ways telling the kids to shut up that what i saw, they were going to lunch. my son is in k his teacher is hedrick really nice and polite.i just had a problem with the dean she not a person she a animal and not a cute one lol.... hope it get better ,
I am very disappointed with this school. The principal tries to keep parents out at all costs... even to the children. I wanted to help out in my childs class and on field trips, and they have the policy of no direct parent involvment.
My child has gone here for 4 years and it is definitely been an experience. Some of the teachers are wonderful! But on the flip side some are not trained to do what they are doing. Even worse the so-called Principal is not in the least concered with the childrens wellfare.
As a parent of a few students at Dunnellon Elementary School I have found that the Principal is just as hands on as the teachers. I have one child that has had to have speech classes and I was very pleased to say that they caught it when he was in pre k. He has now moved to the middle school to follow his older sister. I still have one in the elementary school and one waiting to go and am looking forward to working with the teachers for years to come.
