Welcome to Dan O. Root II Health and Wellness Academy

  • Dan O. Root II Health and Wellness Academy is located in east Suisun City, Calif. Dan O. Root opened its doors to 1,060 K-6 students on July 9, 1990. The school began as a year-round school following a 60-20 calendar. In August 2010, we switched to K-5 following a modified district-wide calendar.

    In going from an elementary school to being the Health and Wellness Academy, Dan O. Root is transitioning to a K-8 with the addition of the seventh grade in August 2018 and eighth grade in August 2019. 

    page Our school offers Learning Centers that are staffed by Special Education Teachers and Paraprofessionals; Speech/Language Therapy and Adaptive Physical Education (APE). We have a nurse and psychologist as well.

    Our school hours are 8:10 a.m. to 2:20 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Kindergarten schedules are 8 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. In December the K students will transition to an early or late class depending on level and will add some time to their day.

    All of our students are taught by highly qualified, fully credentialed teachers. Grades K-3 are 24:1 and grades 4-6 are 34:1. Students have equal access to computers in their classrooms. Our library is staffed with a Library Media Technician, and a librarian visits once a week. 

    We are a diverse community dedicated to enriching children’s lives by stressing academic excellence, promoting self-esteem, and celebrating cultural diversity. Dan O. Root is a true community school with an active faculty, family events and School Site Council.
