My daughter has been attending this school for 4yrs. We love the school because it has a great gifted program, and the teachers really care a lot about the students.

My son has been a student at DES for 2 years. The teachers and the entire staff are great, they do care about the kids and their learning progress. The STEM program is the best, my son is truly enjoying the classes as well as the after school program. The principal is excellent and the community support is amazing.



- a
Fantastic, new facility that is not overcrowded, which is a problem in the area. Teachers really care and get to know the students, the gifted program is wonderful, can't say enough about this school.

Develops character: Strongly agree

They have a NO PLACE FOR HATE campaign. Students learn how to interact with one another. They also do character traits studies each month.

I have two children at DES. They are excelling, especially in math. The children never get bored because there are so many extracurricular choices!

We are very excited about the curriculum that Dunwoody Elementary has this year. The parent tools that are offered are awesome and it allows the parent to be heavily involved with the student. The last past two years has been a great experience and we look forward to working with the teacher this year.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

My son absolutely loves this school. He has excelled in the science and math realm. Coming from Johns Creek in 2014, I was worried about the change, but my son's teacher was excellent and he adjusted very well.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

I can't speak for all, but my son's teacher was phenomenal. Not only did she push the students academically, but she also focused on the development of leadership skills, promoted positive behaviors and good citizenship, and encouraged individuality.



- a
No major issues thus far. The front office staff needs more training in dealing with parents.

I have two children at DES. We have had a great experience. The principal runs a tight ship, makes good staffing decisions, and hires and retains the right teachers. The administration responds to parent input. The academic rigor is very much the same as what you will find in any top public elementary school - my kids are doing the exact same work as my friends' children in North Fulton and East Cobb schools. Very happy with the nice families at the school, also.
