About Us...

Cary Reynolds ES
Cary Reynolds Elementary School was built in 1961 to serve the children in a growing DeKalb Community. The school was originally named Sequoyah Elementary School, but was renamed for the first principal, Cary Reynolds, who died in 1963. The community is made up of a multi-culturally diverse population. The student population has nearly doubled over the past ten years, resulting in an increase in staff members and the need for more space. There has been a dramatic increase in teacher expectations, resulting in a higher caliber of student work. Academic growth has been enhanced by research based programs that have been implemented by our teachers.

Mission Statement
Our mission is to produce knowledgeable students and future leaders by improving academic achievement, and increasing parental/community involvement within a safe school environment. All educational experiences provided to our students will be meaningful, worthwhile, and appropriate.
