My daughter and I are new to the Mobile area and prior to our move I decided to check out the various public schools. I was so impressed with the behavior of the students standing in nice neat lines at ER Dickson that I knew right away I had to go in and look. The teachers and other staff members have been such a god send to not only me but most importantly to my daughter who entered the first grade after moving from a small private school in Montgomery. She loves school and is ready every morning like clock work because she does not want to miss a second of Mrs. Ayers' class. I could not be any happier.

I am thrilled with Dixon Elementary. My son went from being a troubled student with discipline problems at one school to a straight A & Pace program student at Dixon. The Principal has been more than willing to help find the right teachers to allow my son to develop to his full potential. I also have a daughter who has started kindergarten this year. It seems as if all the teachers and faculty already know who she is as well as my son. There is a very welcoming feeling here. We are thankful for all the special attention we have received from teachers & faculty.

I am a grandmother of 3 wonderful well manner children that go to Dixon. And I think it is so wrong when they can't afford expensive coats and the coats they can wear and afford,teachers wants to give the children a hard time and humilate them in front of their classmates.And therefore they have to stay cold while in class. I understand its not the teachers fault because they do what they are told. But teachers are allowed to wear whatever colors and designs they want.I also think the schools dwell more on dress codes&testing instead of teaching.Wake up alot of people can't afford to buy what this school requires when they change things over and over. So let the children enjoy being at school and not dreading to come to school afraid of what teachers may say about their clothes.My children get hurt when they can't please everyone.TY ,Nanny
