Nestled in scenic Old Hickory, DuPont Elementary School proudly serves more than 450 students enrolled in classes ranging from Pre-K through the 4th grade. We are a neighborhood school with strong ties to the community.

The faculty, staff and administration at DuPont Elementary School serve our students with dedication and pride. Our teachers maintain high standards, and we stress academic achievement, the advancement of life skills and the teaching of character education across our curriculum.
