Waxahachie ISD has exceptional schools offering programs ranging from PreK through Associate degree. Dunaway Elementary is just one of the five elementary schools in the district. What sets Dunaway apart from the rest is:
The staff and parents are proud of our students' high academic and dual language successes. Dunaway is nosselled in one of the most well established, quaintly developed, family oriented Waxahachie neighborhoods. Dunaway's teachers, paraprofessional, in the special education Life Skills class celebrate daily achievements with the extraordinary assistance given by: external departments like speech, reading and library staff. I award Dunaway five stars in all categories.
