Principal's Welcome 


Message from the Principal




Welcome to Dunlap Grade School, Home of the Royals! DGS is one of five elementary schools in Dunlap School District. Home to about 250 students in grades K-5, DGS is located in the Heart of the Village of Dunlap just North of the Peoria Metropolitan area.






At DGS we strive to ensure the growth and development of all students. Our vision is that Dunlap Grade students will continuously excel in a global society by being:

  1. Self-motivated learners
  2. Critical thinkers
  3. Effective communicators
  4. Skilled collaborators
  5. Responsible and culturally aware citizens
  6. Technologically capable creators  


Our mission is "Dunlap Grade School Royals will Develop as Life Long Learners."


Our continuous improvement efforts this year will focus on the development of 21st century learners. With the implementation of Common Core State Standards, students and teachers will engage in higher-order thinking, problem solving, and collaborative learning. We are excited to deploy new technologies that include 75 chrome books and 50 iPads. A newly equipped computer lab will also be available to our students. Staff will continue to hone teaching practices, review student data, and make important instructional decisions during Professional Learning Communities (PLCs).
