    "This is a great school in a neighborhood that has a wonderful community feel. The teachers and administration are wonderful. Lots of parental involvement! My daughter (kindergarten- Spanish Immersion) loves going to school ! Lots of specials, computers, art, music, pe, and before and after care onsite. The PTO has been great and there isn't the cliquish and cattiness you hear about on other schools:) This is one of the best school districts and the best elementary school in the area! Many parents out of the district apply here during open enrollment!"

    "DWES is such an amazing school. I could not be happier with the teachers, staff, principal and the friends my child has made. The teachers have been awesome to work with and my child loves going to school every day. My child talks about her teacher constantly and has learned so much and has had so many wonderful opportunities. I wish every school could be like DWES!"

    "Went here from the fall of 2001 to the spring of 2007 (back when it was only kindergarten to fifth grade). Being a senior in high school, let me just say this school taught me the most during my 12 years of education than middle school and high school combined. In my opinion, it is one of the best elementary schools in the state. The majority of the teachers are so loving, caring, and supportive! It's so weird to see some of the teachers from my childhood still teaching (Mrs. Peterson was my favorite teacher ever). You can definitely see how great this school. Why else would most of the teachers stick around for 10+ years. The secretaries are even still around from when i was a kid! This school definitely made school fun, and from the current reviews, i can see that they're still doing a excellent job. I'm so thankful for all the childhood memories i made, and i really think that this school should set up a reunion or something (for the older kids still in high school/ the ones that started college). Love this school so much,! Really surprised it's not private or exclusive yet."

    "We love DWES and my child is excited to go to school everyday. The school has a ton of parent involvement and most the staff seems happy to be there. The new principal seems to be engaged and is working on improving things where needed."
