This school lacks leadership and professionalism. The principal and her staff of teachers are very poor examples of how a school should run. This is the only school that I have ever had problems with. Nothing gets resolved instead, they just "sweep it under the rug" and hopes it will go away. I see a lot of parents walking their children into the school and showing support whenever there is something going on at the school, however, the parents Are Not shown the same respect. Sadly, I moved my son from a great school just 5 miles away and I have regretted ever since. There are some good teachers there, but unfortunately, not enough. I do not recommend anyone sending their child or children here, unless it is the only choice you have. Maybe if the school board weren't so busy and actually sent some of their members to see how the school is performing, there would be less problems. but unfortunately, Montgomery County has one of the poorest school systems I have ever experienced. As I stated earlier, a great lack of leadership from both the school board and the school.

I am very satisfied with Dozier Elementary. I have not had any problems thus far. I have found that most of the disappointed parents are the parents that are not involved. You must be involved with you child if not 90% of the time at least 55%. I don't visit the school everyday. But, I am a parent that both teachers and other faculty members know. It's all about parent involvement.

No football here. Music, art, clubs and everything else. It is a very good school.

I was very disappointed in this school. We moved into a neighborhood zoned for this school and we had high hopes. My child is having to re-learn what she should have learned this year to prep for next year (at a new school) over the summer. There are no extracurriculars at this school. The parent participation/involvement is virtually non-existant or minimal. The teachers have a lot of heart and need it because the school disciplinary code is lacking. . This school has the flavor of an inner city school. Something nice: The saving grace is the big library. There are lots and lots of books if a child likes to read.
