Welcome New Parents to Vanderlyn!

Vanderlyn Elementary School is a neighborhood school located in the heart of Dunwoody. Established in 1973, Vanderlyn has always maintained a reputation of academic excellence that is still evident today.

We place a strong emphasis on STEM Education. STEM includes the integration of the curricular areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Through an innovative approach to include the Arts, Vanderlyn students are exposed to visual arts, dance, physical education, music and band, which promote the STEAM concept. The inclusion of Arts inspires creativity and innovation that are important in the STEM field. Students have access to an excellent media center and technology resources. We encourage a healthy school environment and always strive for a happy and challenging academic setting. Learning at Vanderlyn is exciting, innovative and fun!
