Great School! I am very pleased with the curriculum and the positive involvement from the teachers, parents, and students. Dupont focuses on learning in the classroom and provides the students with extracurricular activities before and after school. Before school activities include choir or guitar; After school: Battle of the Books, running club, tutoring, etc. There are so many diverse clubs that the students can take part in. I am impressed with teachers level of experience, knowledge, talents, and what they offer to the students. Dupont strives to be the best and it shows. This is my children's first year at Dupont. Transferring from Chester was a bit terrifying. My children have excelled in every aspect of learning and do not ever want to miss a day. Dupont Elementary is a hidden secret. There is so many great things about this school. The one thing I would like to have changed are the ratings. Thank you Dupont Teachers and Staff for all you do!
Recently our daughter represented her school in a district academic program. I was very pleased at the level of confidence exhibited by her Dupont Elementary peers! They worked well together in teams and seemed to have a great deal of pride in their school.
I'm disappointed more people have not voted to this school of organized ladies and gentlemen. From everyone from the custdians to the principal ensure that these children recieve a safe and solid education! They all seem to do it so effortlessly, as if you and your child are a part of their extended family! I love this school, they really rock! I would have never known that so many fortunate children attend because they seem to know each one and their family dynamics individually! Did I mention how great and supportive the other parents are of each other children? Our village!
My daughter attended Dupont Elementary K-2 grade. The whole time she was at that school they said she had disabilities, failed the first grade and kept D's and F's for the other grades. She is now at Enon Elementary where she has made honor roll for 2 years and they have not found any disabilities. If your child is a 'A' or 'B' student at Dupont, then there are no problems. If your child requires a little extra help... then Dupont swears that there is something wrong with them!
I have dealt with many of the staff from teachers to custodians and have found they have a true love for all the children there. They offer many programs that I've not seen at other schools. It even has an after school program that includes children's photography, children's engineering, and robotics along with tutoring and homework help. I see good things going on there all the time.
I work at Dupont and my child attends Chesterfield Co. schools. I can say with no hesitation that the quality of teachers at Dupont far exceedes what I have seen in Chesterfield. These teacher work hard and strive for success under difficult situations. I can't say enough good things about the teachers at DuPont!
