Excellent teachers! They are all so dedicated & really work together. These kids are lucky to have such exceptional teachers... and staff!

Amount of homework: Not enough
August 13, 2015
Starting around 3rd grade you find more consistent homework given. Many times students are given time in class to get the homework completed - hence no "homework." I do believe some work should be done @ home to enhance the learning experience. Try to remember what you learned @ school that day, but in a different setting. I would like to see a bit more work that is designated to actual work @ home worksheets. Overall though they do a wonderful job enhancing what is being taught.

Develops empathy: Strongly agree

One program Dundee does each year is the Pay it Forward. It's an opportunity for kids to tell the world the many ways they are paying it forward. By caring for others & showing compassion they are realizing how one good deed can spread like wildfire - in a good way. The diversity @ Dundee is an opportunity for students to learn about each other & understand we're not all the same. Anytime a counselor is needed Mrs. Collasaco is there. She's a fantastic listener & really helps the kids to better understand feelings of their own & feelings of another.

Develops honesty: Strongly agree

Honesty, integrity & fairness are found @ Dundee each & every day. These kids know what is expected of them and they are held to it. They are expected to act polite & respectfully and understand there are consequences. Something as simple as losing playground time or field trips, but consequences nonetheless. Each child is treated as equally as possible and each child is given the opportunity to achieve & excel - sometimes w/ a bit of a push from a great teacher.

Everyone from the principal to the teachers, office staff, kitchen staff, janitorial and all in between are fantastic! Every grade has excellent teachers who really care & are willing to go the extra mile. The principal, Kaye Kennedy, knows each & every student. She always makes time for parent discussions, she's open to new ideas and eager to help out. The parents @ Dundee really know how to dig in & get things done. We have after school clubs, sock hops, craft night w/ the pancake man, basketball, volleyball, our own yearbook and so much more! It really a exceptional school that will give each student so many great opportunities and memories!

We moved and had to find a home in the Dundee school district hearing it is the best and that other families in outlying areas want to get in desperately. This is our second year and we love it. From what I understand, the great school rating is not accurate here. Students score very very high. This school has a lot of different student populations from ESL to special needs, along with the main student population. They report all scores which brings the ratings down. If Greatschools were able to decipher the scores-I have no doubt this school would be a 10.

This is our first year at this school and can already tell this will be the best school my kids will ever attend. From how dedicated the staff is to the resources available to the students, they strive for excellence! Also, one of my favorite things is the meals. I have never seen a school offer fresh fruits and veggies DAILY!

Best public school in the city. Great teachers and staff. Very involved parents. I felt my kids were more than prepared for middle school.

Everyone is so welcoming and genuinely interested in children. They tailor teaching to meet each child learning style, which many places say they do, but really don't.

There is a reason that Dundee was honored as a Blue Ribbon School. Teacher, Staff, & Parent involvement is unbeleivable. Students are #1, special programs are all top-notch including academic challenge programs, behavior & learning challenged programs. Teachers give 110%. Not only are academics offered during school, there is also an after school program offered to all students which is sponsored by the PTA and offers a wide range of activities from badminton to chess to quilting to beginning Spanish and more. The door is always open for parents and parental involvement is a key to this school's success! My son has attended for 7 years now & I could not think of anywhere else I would have wanted him to attend. He is truly a better student and person because of those that touched his life at Dundee!

Dundee Elementary is the Best in OPS. This school allows all of its students to learn and grow at their own pace allowing all children to strive to meet their goals. This school allows self esteem to bloom and children to advance academically!

Dundee Elementary has provided a great learning environment for my son. The counselors here are fantastic and always encouraging. The teachers are very hands-on and the education of the children is a number one priority. The PTA gives parents insight as to what is being done for the school and different ways to get involved. I would definitely recommend Dundee to any parent considering elementary schools for their child. Mrs. Bowers (the principal) is so sincere and works wonders with the kids.

The teachers flunked in their efforts to teach my 6th grade daughter. We had to pull her out and put her in omaha christian academy. She is doing fine now, but all we heard were excuses from the teachers at dundee. Some even tried to put the blame on my daughter! much more needs to be done to stop parents from parking in the driveways and street when they come to pick up their children. This is an elementary school, not burger king!!!
