    We have been very pleased with the experience our children have had so far at Dutch Fork Elem. Every teacher has been impressive and the parental involvement is strong. We appreciate the way the teachers have challenged our oldest child and allowed her to alter or expand assignments to achieve her 'vision'. We also have a high comfort level with the administrative staff due to the interest and concern they have shown for each of our kids.

    Dutch Fork Elementary school is great! I went there when I was a kid I'm now 35 and my son started there last year in K5. Mrs. Lominack the principle is one of the best principles I've ever met. She really does care and so does the rest of the staff!
