Home of the Jets!

The success of Dyess Elementary is the result of experienced, dedicated teachers who have very high expectations for the success of all students. This is truly amazing when you consider that the students at Dyess come from various school systems and programs from many other states and countries.

Discipline, both in behavior and in the academic endeavors, has become the mainstay of the educational process at Dyess Elementary. Dyess teachers believe that every child, regardless of ability, can learn. Each teacher feels personally responsible for the learning of each child in his/her charge. As a result, there exists a collaborative belief that as a team, kindergarten through fifth grade, we achieve success and that failure of a child is not acceptable.

“One Team, One Mission, Every Child” is not just a motto, but has become the essence of the dedication of the faculty and staff at Dyess Elementary.
