We moved and had to find a home in the Dundee school district hearing it is the best and that other families in outlying areas want to get in desperately. This is our second year and we love it. From what I understand the great school rating is not accurate here. Students score very very high. This school has a lot of different student populations from ESL to special needs along with the main student population. They report all scores which brings the ratings down. If Greatschools were able to decipher the scores-I have no doubt this school would be a 10.

This is our first year at this school and can already tell this will be the best school my kids will ever attend. From how dedicated the staff is to the resources available to the students they strive for excellence! Also one of my favorite things is the meals. I have never seen a school offer fresh fruits and veggies DAILY!
This is my daughters third year and I am still as happy with the teachers and staff as I was on the first day!!!! Thank you for all you do for our children!
Best public school in the city. Great teachers and staff. Very involved parents. I felt my kids were more than prepared for middle school.
Everyone is so welcoming and genuinely interested in children. They tailor teaching to meet each child learning style which many places say they do but really don't.
O my its the best public school in Omaha
Dundee is the best. All six of my children have attended there and the school has earned the blue ribbon award again. yes my children have attended other public schools and none compare.
There is a reason that Dundee was honored as a Blue Ribbon School. Teacher Staff & Parent involvement is unbeleivable. Students are #1 special programs are all top-notch including academic challenge programs behavior & learning challenged programs. Teachers give 110%. Not only are academics offered during school there is also an after school program offered to all students which is sponsored by the PTA and offers a wide range of activities from badminton to chess to quilting to beginning Spanish and more. The door is always open for parents and parental involvement is a key to this school's success! My son has attended for 7 years now & I could not think of anywhere else I would have wanted him to attend. He is truly a better student and person because of those that touched his life at Dundee!
Dundee Elementary is the Best in OPS. This school allows all of its students to learn and grow at their own pace allowing all children to strive to meet their goals. This school allows self esteem to bloom and children to advance academically!
Dundee Elementary has provided a great learning environment for my son. The counselors here are fantastic and always encouraging. The teachers are very hands-on and the education of the children is a number one priority. The PTA gives parents insight as to what is being done for the school and different ways to get involved. I would definitely recommend Dundee to any parent considering elementary schools for their child. Mrs. Bowers (the principal) is so sincere and works wonders with the kids.
The teachers flunked in their efforts to teach my 6th grade daughter. We had to pull her out and put her in omaha christian academy. She is doing fine now but all we heard were excuses from the teachers at dundee. Some even tried to put the blame on my daughter! much more needs to be done to stop parents from parking in the driveways and street when they come to pick up their children. This is an elementary school not burger king!!!
This is a great school. The staff is all wonderful from the Janitor to the Principal they are all very personable.
My child learns a lot and she think all the teachers are very nice.
