I am so fed up with this school and the teachers. If you choose this school please be very observant of how your child I'd looked after.

I think this is the lowest school in DeKalb county. I can tell that they don't get a lot of funding. Not all, but most of the staff have no clue how to talk to the students! They are very unorganized, have no structure/system in place. The principal is VERY nonchalant, and that's the wrong attitude to have with the kind of students that are at that school. The teachers are not very parent friendly despite what they say. They will get smart with you in a minute! Bullying is very wide spread because SOME of the teachers don't care. The kids are horrible,wild! There ISN'T alot of parental involvement! Although this is just my opinion, I wish someone would have told me this information. You have been warned!

Praise to Dunaire Elementary School. In the midst of turmoil, I am so pleased to see the focus on our youth. I attended Family Fun Night and the Living Museum for Black History Month and enjoyed it immensely. Thanks for keeping your eyes and hearts on our future and their education.

Dunaire has made A.Y.P. several years in a row. The teachers are loving and skilled to deal with one of the most diverse population in the Dekalb county school system. Parental involvement is great and the school is going in the right direction with one of the best counselors in the state of Georgia Ms. Gatewood and the student support specialist Mr. Brown. I think the best 5th grade math teacher in the state of Georgia is at Dunaire our Teacher of the Year Ms. Thurman. Math scores continue to meet or exceed under her masterful teaching.

Totally ineffective program for bullying. Staff does not have a clue what they are being paid for.

Posted April 24, 2009

Teachers and administration are 'OK' if you want school children 'processed' and minimums met. Bluntly - terrible procedures and personnel in following through properly in dealing with the few problem children (esp if they have 'known' parents). But they will severly follow-thru with the average children or those from different backgrounds.

The teachers at Dunaire Elementary really strive to provide their students with a caring, secure, and inviting educational atmosphere. The school has teamed up with the local YMCA to offer affordable before and afterschool care that is held right at the school. My son has attended Dunaire Elementary for the past four years, and his experience so far has been great.
