A Welcome Message from Principal Shelia Gann

Welcome to Dibrell Elementary School

A school rich in history and love of education dates back to 1878 when the community of Dibrell received its name from General George Dibrell. Formal education dates back to 1902 with the establishment of Dibrell College and thrived for 21 years. Dibrell High School began in 1923 and had grades from first through twelve. In 1970, Dibrell was transitioned into an elementary school serving Pre-K through eighth grade with an average enrollment of five hundred students.

Dibrell community members take pride in the school and proudly support the efforts of our faculty, staff, and students. We have been recently selected as a Reward School and School of Recognition for the state of Tennessee.  We offer challenging academics and several athletic programs building a fun and rewarding program.

From generations of Dibrell families to newcomers to the community, we welcome you to our Dibrell family.


Tip Line - Warren County Schools, TN

In an effort to increase safety, the Warren County School District in conjunction with Warren County Sherriff’s Department has developed an anonymous TEXT-A-TIP line: 931-952-6770. We want to encourage anyone who has information regarding someone selling drugs, threatening to hurt others, having or planning to bring weapons on campus, as well as any illegal activity or public safety concerns in the schools, to text that information to the TEXT-A-TIP line. Any information regarding any school may be sent via text and will go directly to a school resource officer. IF ANYONE HAS INFORMATION THAT IS AN EMERGENCY, THEY SHOULD CALL 911. We feel this will be another avenue to help provide important information to authorities and help us all to stay safe.
