Dyersburg City School District


Dyersburg is a community located in Dyer County in northwestern Tennessee. The Dyersburg City School System has a reputation of providing a quality education for the children of the Dyersburg/Dyer County community for more than 175 years.

The fact that all of the schools in the Dyersburg City School System are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools exemplifies our use of national benchmarks to improve the quality of education for students at all grade levels. The school system employs over 400 persons, with more than 250 of that number being classroom teachers. All teachers are licensed by the Tennessee Department of Education. In addition, almost 60 percent of our teachers have achieved their master's and/or doctorate degrees.
