I went to Dundee for K-8th grade (1945-1954). Dundee was good then and I' 'm so happy to see that it still is!

My son and daughter have attended Dundee Elementary and we always knew how wonderful the staff/ teachers were, but didn't realize to what extent until our daughter went off to middle school. She was leaps and bounds ahead of most of the other kids and we owe that to the wonderfully dedicated teachers and staff at Dundee. The PTO is one of the most involved and the combination pays off with extremely well educated students. Dundee is a diverse school with opportunities for all levels of education. If your child needs help, the dedicated teachers are willing to stay after and help. If they need to be challenged because they've mastered a skill set, the teachers are willing to step it up. Every teachers at Dundee is dedicated to the students and the school. The principal and staff are just as dedicated. I was impressed years ago when we stopped by for a Kindergarten visit and Kaye Kennedy gave us a personal tour and knew every childs name that we encountered through the halls. With over 540 students that's AMAZING! Overall, best school!
