I have to admit I was skeptical through my son's kindergarten year and not sure he was getting the best education, but this year is a whole new story! His teacher is amazing! She is excellent at communication and involvement with her students. Their web pages are a phenomenal idea and it just goes to show the amount of time and length they are willing to go to ensure parents that their children are getting the best quality education possible! They participate in amazing supplemental programs that you can do with your child at home with internet access that are completely free to you because the school has already paid for them! My son is most enthusiastic about Raz-Kids! Their morning drop-off also makes it a breeze for my husband to get to work on time in the morning since they he has about a 25 minute commute to work and Dove opens the doors early. I definitely recommend Dove Elementary!

Dove Elementary is an outstanding school in all areas. The teachers provide a positive learning experience in a professional manner that is fun for all the students. Technology is integrated when possible. Also, Dove offers many opportunities for students to be involved with various clubs (art, cardio, culture) as well as fabulous musical possibilities (choir and dynamic drumming). It truly is an excellent school in all areas!!

Sending your baby off for someone else to love and care for is scary for any parent. Dove Elementary truly believes in cultivating the best of every student and growing them into future adults! We began Dove Elementary with Mrs. Singley last year, and she was the best start for elementary school that we could have ever hoped for. All of the teachers at Dove, from regular classroom, to ASPIRE, to music, art and PE, really do care about my student and want to help her achieve her potential. We bought our home in the Dove Elementary zone for these very reasons and so many more. We are lucky to be part of the Dove Dolphin family and look forward to many more years, and more memories!

My three sons have all attended Dove, and I have nothing but high praises. Parent involvement is over-the-top (great!) and there is a lot of school spirit. One of my children needed special education services, and the team at Dove has been very supportive and offered guidance as I navigated through a difficult time. Even when they disagreed with my decisions (not to medicate and to hold back), they backed me and we moved forward. He is now in middle school, still under an IEP plan and making As and Bs in Pre-AP classes. Dove prepared him for success in middle school. Outstanding teachers: Mrs. Singley, Mr. Strang. If I have one complaint, it's the redistricting lines that added kids till we seem to be bursting at the seams, but we seem to be handling that quite well. Second complaint is with GCISD in general and how kids who go to school together at Grapevine Middle School are split up between two high schools. This has nothing to do with Dove, but it's a long-standing sore spot that I have with the district.

With a staff that cares for the children like their own, and a principal who works hard everyday to make dove the best, it's hard to imagine a better place for my children to be shaped for the rest of their lives.

Dove Elementary continues to improve teaching methods and practisings; always looking for ways to ignite the learning capabilities of the students. Exception teachers at all levels from Kindergarten through 5th grade. Strong PTA membership that promotes school activities all year long.

My family loves this school. We have 2 kids in this school and couldn't feel better about our choice in school. I feel like my children are getting a great education. I also am grateful to have the feel that my kids are safe and in good hands. Considering how unsafe things are in the world today. They have done all the can to make sure that my kids are safe and well educated.The teachers are great and all the staff is kind and always there to help. We have a great school in a great community.We love Dove Elem

Dove Elementary is a family more than a school. Teachers, students and parents all come together, know each other, love each other and interact together to make Dove the best elementary school in our district. The quality of education at Dove is "bar-none" A-Exemplary and I can definitely see this in my child and her knowledge and eagerness to learn and be involved at Dove Elementary. We feel priviledged to be part of Dove Elementary!!! Our Principal, Mrs. Lamb and Vice Principal, Mrs. Torres are positive role models for the children and lead the school with much expertise and dedication, and everytime they speak, this dedication and their love for the school, the teachers, and the students shines through. With such superb leadership at Dove Elementary, it's no wonder, Dove Elementary is such a wonderful school!

Wow! Dove Elementary is an outstanding school. The teachers and staff are top notch. My child's education includes access to technology on a consistent basis. There are several digital classrooms in the school. Dove Elementary is well organized and the office staff is incredible. Mrs. Lamb provides several ways to communicate with parents and students including a newsletter, emails and a phone system. All of the teachers my child has had have been caring, patient and have viewed my child as an individual. ThePTA and Dads Club are very involved and committed to the students, teachers and staff.

Dove Elementary is a school dedicated to meeting the needs of all children. The parent involvement is incredible. They make it easy to become involved in something, whether you stay at home or work part/full time. The teachers and staff make you feel like you and your child matter to them and that we are all in this together. My husband and I are very pleased with the high quality education our child gets from Dove every year! It is evident that this school focuses on the child by the way our child loves coming to school each day excited to see what they will learn today and happy to see the caring teachers. Dove Dolphins are AWESOME!

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
