Dyess Jets

As always, the safety and security of AISD students, families, teachers and staff is our top priority. While we know that these are uncertain times, you can be assured that we remain committed to doing everything in our power to protect our school communities. We can’t wait to see our students again and look forward to a successful 2021-22 school year in the AISD!

Speak Up for Safety

Some examples of reasons to reach out for help for yourself or others are bullying, violence, personal health, suicide prevention, or a crisis at home. If this is an emergency or life-threatening to the student or others, please call 911.

Get Excited! AISD

Almost two of every three voters said “YES!” to our students in the 2018 bond election. They approved plans to spend $138.6 million on new facilities that will benefit elementary, middle and high school students for many years. The NEW facilities for academics, athletics, and the arts will help our dedicated teachers continue the quality education our students deserve.

Student Registration

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.
