I attended Dryden Elementary School from 1st -5th grade and I can say that I loved every day of it. The teachers are very nice and hands on. I have 2 little brothers that both started attending DES this school year, in head-start and kindergarten. They love school and they are always telling me stories of what they do in class and how much fun they have. They look forward to school every day. I recently went to a few after-school functions and it is clearly apparent that the teachers really love their jobs and the kids that they teach.

My grandaughter is in the first grade @ Dryden Elementary. She has had a wonderful experience there. She had a wonderful KG teachers/Ms Brewer last yr and this yr she really like Ms. Hammonds. I love the small school atmosphere and commend the faculty/staff for making it fun but teachable.

My daughter started school at Dryden part way through last year it has been a great experience and she looks forward to going to school. The communication between the teachers and parents seems to be wonderful, sending home information on a regular basis. Tricia Shuler- Parent of 2nd grade student.

Dryden is one of the best Elementary schools in the county. Even though it is the largest it maintains the 'small school environment'. It takes a whole village to raise a child and Dryden provides that.

This school is exactly what a small town school should be. Everyone knows everyone. There is an open friendly atmosphere where everybody is involved in the education of our children. My children both attend here and they already know every teacher, bus driver, aide, janitor, etc, by first name or title. The PTO is very involved in providing extra curricular activities to all students, without thought of income. There are two headstart classes on sight that broaden the experiences available to those children.
