Experience the power of public education.
Welcome to Daisy Bates Elementary School, Home of the Tigers! Bates is a Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade community that serves approximately 500 students. We are an educational community that promotes the academic and social development of all students in a safe, friendly environment.
Bates offers school-wide wireless access, and every child receives the use of their own iPad or Chromebook. We offer a variety of programs such as Discovery and Alpha, as well as classrooms equipped with Smart Boards, Apple TV, Chromecast, flat-screen televisions, and other available opportunities.
Bates is one of two elementary schools in the district to offer the orchestra specialty program to students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. We are also a “Breakfast in the Classroom” school, in which every child receives free breakfast each morning.
I am humbled and excited to begin a new school year as the principal of Daisy Bates Elementary School. I am excited about the opportunity to get to know you, and I’m looking forward to a rewarding and productive school year.
Dr. Darnell B. Bell, Principal
