Dunloe Elementary School is where my grandson attends. He completed his Kindergarten year during the 2012-2013 school year. When my daughter invited to events at the school I found the staff to be very friendly and inclusive. I also like the fact that they do Individual Planning with the child & parents. However, I do believe that there needs to be bus monitors on the buses. Since I go to my daughter's home every morning & afternoon to put on & take my grandson off the school bus, there were several times where he was bullied by a third grader. When my daughter called the school, she was told that the school has nothing to do with bus incidents and that she would need to call the bus garage to make a report. After two weeks of requesting that somethng be done my grandson's seat was moved. I wtinessed another parent whose kindergartner experienced the same thing with a bulling 4th grader. I also witnessed the bus driver yelling at children (not my grandson), as well as other bus drivers speeding thru the neighborhood, especially in the afternoons.
This is a great school with outstanding teachers, and a top notch principal. Very active PTO. Kids love it here.
My daughter spent Kindergarten and First grade here. It has been an awesome experience. The teachers are great and do there best. Plenty of school activities and the PTO is always active and present. The current school principal is a loving but firm parent figure for all. If we were not a military family due to move this summer, I am sure spending another school year at Dunloe would suit us just fine. My only grief is about the parking lot. The way it is set up and because it is so small. I dont understand why dont they use some of that land and make it bigger if not set it up where getting in and out is not a hassle. All these SUV's and trucks and school buses make it painfully stressful if not dangerous. Other than that, We loved Dunloe and its staff and Principal.
The last of my 3 children is a 5th grader at Dunloe. This is my 16th consecutive year at Dunloe, I have been through 3 pincipals and been there as long or longer than a lot of the staff. I would give this school the highest rating. The teachers are absolutely wonderful, as well as the (office) staff. I would much rather be in a school district where the actual people that spend all day with my children are caring and committed to the children as to maybe a school district that is more finacially stable. This school district struggles for support and doesn't always receive it through levys; however I would not trade this small school district for all the money in the world. I think Dunloe is a exceptional example of what a school should possess.--Rhonda Seel, parent
My child goes to this school and she thinks it is absouluteley wonderful.Everything about this school is wondeful the teachers have a great way of relating to the kids.The lessons are explained well so that they are understandable.They get specials such as art,music and gym which they get involved in.I suggest that people in the Groveport-madison schooldistric have their children go to this school. Sincerely, a parent
I like the way the principle tries very hard to improve the quality of the learning enviroment for the children. There is also a big encouragement of the student population to respect each other and their school. You can see that these students are happy & proud to be a part of Dunloe Elementary due in part by the caring nature of the teacher staff.
My child is in her first year at Dunloe Elementary and I have to say that I am very pleased so far. Miss Keiber is an excellent teacher and very good with the kids. I have observed the classroom first hand and know that she is doing a wonderful job with the kids. The principal, Ms. Curry, is very involved with the kids and you can tell that she is very dedicated to the children at Dunloe Elementary. My hat goes off to the both of you and a Great Big Thank You!
I have 2 children who attend Dunloe Elementary and I am greatly disappointed in several health and safety issues that my children have been involved with. The lack of supervision during certian activities such as playground time concerns me. Also due to over crowding I saw a lack in consistancy when it came to my kindergardeners school work. Had my husband and I both not spent hours every night working with my child she would not be ready for first grade. Ex. all through the school yr my child hardly ever brought school work home. On occasion a homework packet came home. Good concept unfortunatily not consistant. At the end of year when my daughters work came home again many good concepts but not finished past Oct. My child would have suffered had I not taught her myself.
My daughter is in first grade at Dunloe and I cannot say enough about her teachers both last year and this year. Both Miss Keiber (K) and Ms. Frisbee (1st) have gone out of their way to make my child's academic career a success. I am also very happy with Mrs. Curry, the principal, who makes herself readily available to parents and children. At orientation, Mrs. Curry went so far as to give every parent/guardian her home number. Excellence is the goal at Dunloe.
I have several children who have attended Dunloe Elementary and we can honestly tell you that we have nothing good to say about this school. My biggest complaint is when my daughter was able to check out library books and was given homework to bring home that required them or allowed them to read things that were not age appropriate. After complaining to the school of this, the books remained in the classroom along with the library. These students have more homework than college kids. I was told that one of my children cannot bring pop to school in there lunch bag, yet they give it to them in after school programs or birthday parties etc due to it not being healthy?
This is the first year for my child to attend Dunloe Elementary and I am disappointed in this school. Several incidents have happened throughout the year where my child, a first graders , health and safety were put at risk. Also the lack of structure and discipline within the classroom was awful. I can honestly say I taught my daughter this past school year as she would come home every day with at least 8 pages of work and we would spend from 3:00 to 7:00 doing school. I do not know if this is due to the over crowding or what but I hope that by next school year I'm able to enroll my children in a safer more structured school.
Despite the financial difficulties the distric faces, the staff at Dunloe are exceptional and give every child the best education possible. Overcrowding is an issue, but if more individuals would support a levy, that would dissipate. The staff at Dunloe are involved with all parents, and definitely respond to those parents who show an interest in their child's education. Groveport Madison is a great school district with wonderful teaching staff; they lack the community support required to make them exceptional.
