Open Quote This is a great school. Very diverse and open for everybody. My daughter have been there for past two years. She started with 'English as second language' lessons and after year and a half was certified for gifted program (and her English is fluent now). Great thanks to Mrs. Abamonte, she is a very caring and professional teacher. Close Quote

Open Quote My husband and I were so excited for our child to join the Dunwoody family however quickly found out that African American children and not treated the same as their counterparts. During registration, there was one other African American family and myself, in which their registration was denied. I called daily to ensure my child's acceptance and was never answer. My daughter eventually started school and soon after, our address was asked to be verified by Mrs. Kirtdoll. She went as far as to contact the names and number of our contact log for verification, which is totally unethical. Mrs. Kirtdoll & staff does not support African Americans attending Dunwoody and they will do everything in their power to make your life a living nightmare. Eventually, Ms. Menon, the assistant principal removed my innocent daughter from her learning environment and refused to allow her to return to class. Ms. Menon contacted me to pick up my child because they had withdrew her, needless to say I was appalled. Dunwoody Elementary is a great school, but their treatment of African Americans are extremely hurtful and shameful. Close Quote

Open Quote I love Dunwoody Elementary School on Womack Road in the heart of Dunwoody. My oldest child went to Vanderlyn Elementary (just one block over), and my younger two have been at Dunwoody Elementary for the past two years. The building is brand-new and state-of-the-art. The principal and assistant principals are very impressive. (Assistant Principal Jennifer Sanders used to be assistant principal at Vanderlyn.) Many teachers at Dunwoody Elementary School came over from Vanderlyn Elementary and Austin Elementary, and the school is populated by families who came over from Vanderlyn, Austin and Chesnut. The TAG teachers (called "Discovery" in Dekalb County) are fantastic. My seven-year-old has a wonderful teacher (who came over from Vanderlyn), and my ten-year-old has very good teachers, too (two came over from Vanderlyn, one came over from Austin, and one is new to teaching and great). Students at Dunwoody Elementary get to choose Orchestra, Band or General Music, and one of my children is in her second year of violin there. Children can also take French, Spanish, and advanced Art classes after school, as well as choose from a number of academic and extracurricular clubs. Great school. I expect it to be one of best in the area. Definitely worth a look if you are considering coming to Dunwoody! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
