Great school. We bought a condo a just 2 miles away and had to change schools. My kids miss DSCS sooo much and so do I. I didn't appreciate it enough when they were there. Teachers are great, strong focus on core subjects and very good prep for the CRCT. If we could afford a house in that district, we would move in a heart beat!!!
Great School. I really saw the improvement in my sons. Located in an area with expensive housing though. I Just bought a house and had to leave the area as I couldnt afford it. So sorry to leave.
We like DS but it's a very diverse school. There are very few white children that attend. I wish it was more evenly diverse. I hate my child being the minority. Most of the teachers are great, the principal is awesome! It's a very clean school.
My child went to DSCS this past school year. She had wonderful kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Agri. Mrs. Agri challenged my daughter over and beyond my expectations. I look forward to another outstanding year at DSCS.
My child is in 4th grade and we love Dunwoody Springs. I feel the teachers and staff have done a remarkable job at this school with all teh children. We wanted Ms. Byrd for next year but we heard that she is not coming back. I do not understand this because my other child had Mr.Garrett two years ago and he left to go to another school. This is the only problem I have with this school. It does not seem to retain teachers.
I transferred my daughters to Dunwoody Charter in August of 2006, in the time they have been in this school both have been placed on the principals honor roll, and my second grader math has improved to a higher level. Dunwoody Springs Charter School has far exceeded my expectations.And I look forward to another year with this school.
DS is a new and very clean school, the Principal is usually on top of things. The teachers could be a little more patient with the kids, a lot of them seem to have a short fuse. I don't like my kids yelled at by anyone! DS is very diverse, there aren't that many white kids at the school, I wish it were more of an even mix. A lot of low income families attend.
I was very pleased with this school. The teachers are nice and helpful and they pushed my children to excel.
We sent our son to DSC for 5th grade after being at several different private schools. He has had a fantastic year and made great strides in all areas. We have Ms. Moskowitz especially, to thank, but there were many others. The energy at DSCE is fantastic--Ms. Bennett has a passion for excellence and it is contagious! We're moving on, but we are sure that under her leadership, the school will continue to prosper children.
We have 2 boys at DSES-- now a Charter School! One in First grade (teacher of the year, Ms. Waddle) and the other in PreK (the wonderful Ms. Dockery). Our children are by far most the biggest responsibility my husband and I have. We are blessed to be at a school where each child is viewed as an individual and the needs of each child is met. Everyone from Mr. Bruce (the custodian), Mr. McMurray (an assistant),Ms. Bennett (the principal), and everyone in between are dedicated to the children's academic and social growth.
My daughter has gone to Dunwoody Springs since she was in Pre-K, and I cannot say enough about this school. Everyone from the custodians (Bernard) to the principal (Ms. Bennett) have been wonderful. The teachers are outstanding (thank you Ms. Waddle!). I would highly recommend this diverse school to anyone.
I have a 4th grader and a pre-K student at Dunwoody Springs. I have always been impressed by the attention given to my children's individual needs. The resources and facility are amazing, but what makes the school so great is the dedicated teachers and administration. My kids have a great group of diverse amazing friends, so I couldn't be happier. I know they will be well prepared for middle school and beyond.
Our son is new to DSE this year and in Mrs. Gallagher's 4th grade class. We transferred him from a nearby charter school because of the of the wonderful curriculum and teachers we heard about here at DSE. We researched it and agreed. Transferring him to a new school was scary at first but we felt at home right away. Everything about this school has exceeded our expectations. His teacher is incredible, better than we dreamed. His TAG teacher is incredible and so innovative. His class size is small, the school is not overcrowded, the entire facility is beautiful, and Donna Bennett, the principal, is top-notch. Our son comes home everyday with a new exciting story to tell. When we asked him to rate the school on a scale of 1 to 10, he said it's a 2000. So there you have it.
My son will be entering the 4th grade at this great school. He first enterered DSE in the 3rd Grade, his teacher Linda Pallay was actually very involved with my son's great progress and I am truly one satisfied parent. I was not as actively involved as I would liked to have been, but this school year I will hopefully be able to take part in some of the achools activities. Principal Bennett, thank you for such a great cirriculum and for your personal interest in our student. -Roseanne Blakeney, a very satisfied parent.
My now 5th grade son went to DSE for the first time in 2003-2004. The school is excellent and we love Ms Flowers. Any parent can feel good about sending their child to Dunwoody Springs Elementary!
As a parent I was really nervous about releasing my 4 year old into the world but I must say the school, principal and teachers are willing to address all of your concerns from the very first day on. The school has so many programs to offer your child from after school care to mini- camps to dance etc.. It keeps your child motivated all through the year. My pre-k child has access to computers, library books etc. This truly is an awesome school and I feel very comfortable with my child attending there!
