School History

  • Charles C. Acton Elementary opened in 1978, with an addition in 1980 and renovations in 2003.  The school was named for former superintendent Charles C. Acton (1945-1951).  The school serves grades PK-4.

He received his BS from East Texas State Teachers College, a masters degree from Southern Methodist University, and did additional post-graduate work at the University of Houston. Mr. Acton served as principal and superintendent of schools in Delta and Wise counties before coming to Duncanville. He left the district in 1951, and is the namesake for Acton Elementary School.
