Review Our Testimonials
"We enrolled our kids at Dillsboro Elementary School so they'd receive an excellent education. However, we soon realized we also joined the DES family. One which supports you & your child in their growth as individuals as well as students." - Dillsboro Elementary Parents
"We are parents of two older daughters that came through Dillsboro Elementary had an easy decision to make for our youngest daughter as to where she would attend school. Dillsboro has a team of teachers that take ownership of the education our kids received and deliver a personal touch. My older daughters have gone on to achieve high academic honors and we owe it all to their great start at Dillsboro Elementary." - Dillsboro Elementary Parents
"Growing up in Columbus Ohio, I really appreciate the small class size and 1 on 1 teacher attention Dillsboro Elementary offers my children. Parent/teacher communication has always been excellent. I always have an understanding of what my children are learning and how I can help from home." - Dillsboro Elementary Parent
"Dillsboro Elementary was my elementary school and I am thrilled that my daughter is having the same great experience that I had as a child. The staff at Dillsboro does a wonderful job of remaining current on the changing educational environment while providing the students with the love and caring of a small town community." - Dillsboro Elementary Parent
"The quality of teachers is outstanding and they seem to know almost every student by name no matter what grade they teach. I can send an email to my child’s teacher and get a response back by the end of the day. The quality of education is above what I expected for the grade levels and they are always moving forward to keep up with technology. The teachers make sure the students are involved in community activities such as painting frogs that will be placed in flower pots around the town for the fair. Making sure the students are the ones who are placing the frogs and not volunteers. Taking letters to the post office to be mailed, helping mulch and plant flowers around the school and visiting the Ross Manor. Dillsboro in my opinion is one of the best schools in the district ……top notch!" - Dillsboro Elementary Parent
