I attended Dawnville Elementary school from 2003-2007 (2nd - 5th grades). Every teacher that I had cared about me and my education, and never once did I feel like I had my 'self-esteem broken down' like one of the reviews said. If anything, the teachers and staff at DES helped me *build* my confidence, both personally and academically. Take it from a former student - someone who has actually had 1st hand experience with the current teachers/staff - Dawnville is great!

In response to the last poster: It takes more than a teacher to help educate a child. Parent/Teacher communication is key in helping your child to recieve a quality education. I've never had a problem with a rude and/or demeaning teacher at Dawnville. We moved here in 2003 from the Huntsville City School System (ranked as one of the 'elite' in the SE USA), and I am far more pleased with Dawnville than I was with the schools there.

I have a child at Dawnville and can not wait until he has finished. As far of the no child left behind program this school falls way behind. As a parent who has constantly struggled to get help from my childs teachers for three years now, I totally understand why this school does not meet the academic standards that many other elementary schools in this area do. Most of the staff seems to break the self esteem of small children instead of praising them and going that extra mile to make sure they learn on the current level. I too attended Dawnville as a child and I am very disappointed in the teaching practices.

I am very proud to say that I have not one, but two children at Dawnville, and I would not have them in another school in the County School System. From caring teachers and counselors, all the way up to qualified principals in Mr. Coker and Mrs. Bonds, you could not ask for a more caring, nurturing school. I have been more than pleased with the education that my son, and now my daughter, are receiving at Dawnville. I've always been kept up to date on the progress of my children, and have never had a problem in communication with any of the faculty or staff. - J. Hamilton

I am very proud to say my child attends Dawnville Elementary. The teachers have exceeded my expectations. I have witnessed first hand the dedication they have to their children. Many of the students come to DES knowing little or no Enlish. By the end of the school year they are reading, writing & speaking English. Many people judge because they have been on the No Child Left Behind List - I will disagree with anyone who says these children did not make progress. Maybe they did not excel on a standardized test, but they did make progress. I am proud of our students & their accomplishments. If you are considering Dawnville, you will not be disappointed. You will not find a better school or a more loyal and caring staff.

When I read the reviews I was shocked that more parents hadn't written in. I am very plesaed with the education my son is receiving at this school. His teacher has outstandig morals and character. She has always kept me up to date on my sons progress. He began the school year with a slight speech problem, his teacher started him on a phonix program that has eliminated this problem completely:) I just can't stop bragging, to everyone, about this elm.school.

Although I had gone to Dawnville as a child, I was worried about my first child starting school. When we went for my son's registration I saw that many of the staff members that had been there twenty years ago are still there. The staff is just as great now as it was while I attended. My son really enjoys his school and looks forward to going every day!

Teachers and staff at Dawnville are dedicated to their students and have been for many years. My children attended this historic school and received an outstanding education. It is a wonderful, family atmosphere and all children are given a superior start for their academic career. Many of the alumni have become community leaders and are now giving back to the next generation. It's the best elementary school in the nation!

In 2004 I graduated 5th grade at Dawnville and I will never forget that school. The teachers were great and I couldnt have asked for a better school. I hope other students feel the same way now and when they must leave. In my opinion no school is better!
