This school is steadily improving. As the parent of a special needs child, it's wonderful to see my child happy to go to school. I just wish that there was an After School Program for special needs children.

Dunleith is an excellent and diverse elementary school. We have two children that attended and one that started this year. He is having a great year. The administration and the teachers are excellent. All my children have had an excellent academic career while attending. Everyone should consider Dunleith a great place for an education.
