We love Dupont Elementary School. The school is an old building, but inside is clean and warm. The staff are awesome and so every helpful in making sure each student is learning what they need to know to advance in life. Thank you Dupont for being such an awesome school. I can't imagine my children attending a better elementary school.

The whole staff there are wonderful with the children.My granddaughter has learned so much from some of the finest teacher's around.They in courage learning and teach the students to be out standing citizens.The school needs new books and some repairs to the building too.This is my way to give back to a school and their staff,that have given such great service to our children.

I homeschooled my children for a few years and was apprehensive about sending them to school. I have been so pleased with Dupont. Both children have wonderful, caring, professional teacher; Mrs.Vandergriff and Mrs.Hughes. I have seen many complaints about the principal but I have none of my own. I think she is doing a great job!

We have been so pleased with Dupont teachers. Mrs. Hackett and Mrs. Wilkins are awesome and have been wonderful. They go the extra mile and we appreciate them

This school would be wonderful if it wasn't for that witch of a principal, Anita Coleman. She ruined East Lake Elementary, and now she's ruining Dupont Elementary. She has no buisness being around children at all. Parents are always sighing petitions to get her removed from whatever school she's got her claws sunk into. But instead of getting fired, she gets promoted, thanks to her influential brother. This woman is a disgrace to educators everywhere.

I have two boys'. One just finished the fifth grade(he also started in kindergarten) and the other is going into the first.I have been so pleased with Dupont that I wouldn't have my youngest son go anywhere else.All the teachers have been so good to my children and to me.I recommend Dupont to everyone I know that has grade school children.The open door policy definitely applies to this school.I have been able to talk with everyone that has helped or is helping my children to get a better education with comfort and ease.Thanks Dupont for making us feel at home! Thank You

My daughter loves Dupont Elementary. She had Mrs. Martin in kindergarten and she is wonderful with her students. Katelyn is now in 1st grade, and Mrs. Haynes is her teacher, she is wonderful as well. We are looking forward to 2nd grade. We eat lunch quiet often with our daughter, the office staff and the teacher's we meet in the hall are always nice and say hello. My daughter has excelled every year. We Love Dupont. The Acuff's

I think Dupont Elementary is a wonderful school. When my son first went there, I hadn't heard anything good or bad about the school. So my son is in 4th grade now,started in kindergarten. He loves it there. The staff is really great and helpful. I've been very pleased with every one of my son's teachers. He has learned alot but no matter what,teaching starts at home. Parents have to work with teachers to make the best of your children. Dupont is definitely doing their part. Thanks to all the staff at Dupont from a pleased parent.
