My son is beginning his third year at this school in August. I love the staff , environment and grounds. Everyone works hard and encourages the children to do so also. The PTA is very involved and has many fund raisers during the year. The best fund raiser is the Cystic Fibrosis walk though , the children really get involved and love evry minute of it.
Both of my children have attended Dillard Elementary since Kindergarten. Dillard has been bestowed the title of School of Distinction which shows what a dedicated staff the school has. The school s motto is If you can dream it; you can do it! That is definitely a true statement at this school. Not only the teachers but also everyone from the cafeteria staff, to the janitors to the secretary makes each child feel loved, wanted and needed. No one is labeled as smart or dumb everyone is just one huge family learning from one another. The principal is a hands-on, roll-up your sleeves, get to work type. She leads by example and doesn t ask her teachers or staff to do anything she is not willing to do herself. The children love and respect her. She knows them all by name and I wouldn t be a bit surprised if she knew all their parents by name as well. Dillard Elementary has not only given my children the fundamentals for a great education but it and its staff has given them all the encouragement and confidence they need to face the ever changing world without fear. Thank you Dillard Elementary & Staff!
