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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
