  • I am a parent, volunteer and PTO member of this school. I just love the teachers and staff at Dudley Shoals Elementary School. It's a warm, small and friendly feeling being part of it's daily activity.I enjoy my kids going to such a small school being I am originally from a large city, and know it's so much better for them to get more individual attention they need. No crime, no bullies to worry about. No fashion statements are needed, and I just love it.
