What a wonderful feeling to drop your kids off at school and let the school do it's job. Our first year at Dryden has been wonderful. My children have made some great friends and have learned a lot. The teachers are very positive and work great with the students. Keep up the good work!!!!

This is an awesome school with wonderful staff. I feel the Principal and Assistant Principal are great and extremely involved contrary to the previous reviewer. The art, music and gym classes have all added tremendous value!
