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!
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.
