In two words, simply amazing! I have 2 children that attend Dale City elementary and they continue to thrive. I can tell that my children are being taught by some of the most dedicated teachers I have ever met. Thank you for all you do! One happy parent:)

This school is wonderful..My daughter has attended DCES since Kindergarten and she loves every minute of it. The school does a wonderful job of communicating with me about anything. The school also has a great staff. I love how the principal or vice principal greet the children every morning at the kiss and ride, and if they are not there then another staff member is. The staff is wonderful every teacher my daughter has ever had has been wonderful. Also notice that this school does not have a very big turn over rate and I love that. The only this is the lack of parent involvement but I blame that on the school I would have loved to have been part of PTA meetings but the times were wrong 4pm is hard for most parents to get there and be active with the meeting if it was maybe later like 6pm or 7pm i think it would have been easier for most. Im glad to be a parent of a child of a school like this. Very personable and friendly everyday..My daughter will be leaving this year to go to middle school but glad to have my 5year old attend kindergarten next school year!

My daughter has attended DCES for this full year after transferring from Fairfax county last year. The first thing that struck me was the increased attention paid to her IEP status. The faculty was more hands on and proactive as a result of the lower enrollment and the ability to provide more one to one time. As a result, she will recieve her first A/B Honor Roll for this year. The only thing that keeps them from receiving 5 stars is the lack of timelyness in distribution of the many technological assets available to help the students. We didn't find out until almost the end of the first reporting period what the school recommended web sites were to help students with course work. Also the parent involvement in activities such as PTA remains poor. All things considered a very good school.

We were not to pleased that our child would attend this school, but we wanted to make the best of it. It is ok ! We are certainly are a minority. The Parent involvement in the PTA is almost zero. In one of the classes one teachers left the class in the middle of the year to attend a different position. The staff is friendly so are the teachers.

this school is ok. Some teachers are unhelpful and the main office is very ignorant. but on the brighter side this place also has some very great teachers and great activities for example is feild day they recently had a great performance from a karate school and they were great!

My son loves this school! He is performing above grade level and hates to miss school. His teacher's are very intune with his individual learning patterns and communicate well with parents. The principals are awesome! Very interactive with the kids and the parents.

I have been very involved with the school the past two years, volunteering in the classroom, with the PTA, attending many of the activities, etc. I have so far been pleased with the teachers and the education. I don't feel that they have enough activities compared to the activities that the PTA puts on in nearby more affluent schools that my friend's kids go to, but we are working to change that next year and have been able to rally up more volunteers.
