Open Quote DES is a wonderful school. I currently have four children attending from grades K to 5th. My oldest is gifted and provided challenging course work in their fabulous FOCUS program. My 1st grader has needed a lot intervention and the school has done a great job of meeting all of her needs. Dacula Elementary has a diverse student body. The test scores have ping-ponged their ratings up and down, but this is an excellent school. All of the educators and administrators work hard to meet the needs of their students. I have been so pleased with the learning environment my children have been provided here. 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.
