My grandson attends Dresden Elementary School and loves it there! The teachers and administrator go above and beyond to assist all children. They truly believe that every child achieves! If a child is struggling academically or socially, the staff are right alongside the children to determine what supports need to be in place to assist them.
My niece went to dresdan for kindergarten and first grade, then we took her out of there and put her into another school which we love everything about it but it ended up closing, at dresdan everything was not ran well right down to the way the buses drove and parked, the staff etc the list goes on and on and unfortunatealy my nephew is back at dresdan this year because our school closed too bad it was not dresdan instead!
My son attends Dresden through the Schools of Choice program. We chose to send our son to Dresden based on recommendations from an Advocate. Mrs. VanDe and the entire team of teaching staff are kind, respectful and highly educated. They work together to provide a safe and fun learning experience every day. They set the bar high for other schools. We are pleased beyond words and my son is thriving in a school that understands him and challenges him every day. Thank you Dresden!
Absolutely love this school. Our daughter does so well. All of the staff and teachers are great. Would never consider changing schools.
My daughter is in her third year at Dresden. We love it! Her teachers have all been great, and Mrs. Vande is a wonderful principle. I always feel welcome when I volunteer in the classroom. I highly recommend the school!
I attended UCS from kindergarten through graduation. My daughter attends UCS now and is finishing 1st grade. I am very pleased with the ciriculim she is using.
I am a product of the UCS system. My chid is now attending my old elementary. I am not happy with the fact that our public school systems in MI have less than half that meet or exceed the national average for test scores. This is abysmal. I will be pulling my child from public school and putting her in the Lutheran School near us. I am very disappointed in our public school system considering what we pay in school property tax. We are getting robbed!
My children went from Van Dyke public schools...Both in kindergarten. I think Dresden Elementary is the best school I've seen. I was raised in East Detroit and my husband in Van Dyke. We are extremely satisfied w/the choice we've made and will strive to keep our children in the Utica School system throughout High School.
