I have a daughter that has attended Dyers for kindergarden and for first grade.Both of her teachers has had a positive impact on her character.Her first grade teacher read to the class with such love and passion that every day this summer she has share moments of her teacher.The beauty of life and her new founded vocabulary has such great detail.This only could come from a wonderful teacher that makes every child feel like they are the greatest and far more...Thank you, "Mrs.Trumbull "for all the love that you have given.

I have 3 children at Dyer, my oldest being in the 4th grade. All of my kids have had outstanding teachers. Focus programs are outstanding. Class sizes are small, great teacher student ratio. Music, art, sports are all great programs. Tremendous amount of enrichment activities. We will not move until our kids are all out of Dyer.
