Dixie Elementary School 1

To all those who have posted before about how Dixie is a school that really welcomes you and feels like family- that's ONLY if you have lived in and your children have grown up in the area their entire lives. As a military family who has children who have attended multiple schools over the years- Dixie was a serious let down to us. From the very first day of orientation when the teacher did not even look at or acknowledge anybody in the classroom who they had not seen/met before (despite multiple attempts to get her attention), to halfway through the school year having emails continually ignored by the principal. My 5th grade son has had his teacher's political and religious views pushed on him, has had a discussion about abortion in his classroom, and has had the gideons invited into his classroom to distribute bibles to he and his classmates. If you're looking for education for your children, RUN from this school! If you're looking for an extension of the Christian church and typical "bible belt" mentality, then perhaps you'll fit in a bit better than we did.

My son is in his 2nd year at Dixie Elementary. We really love Dixie Elementary. It has small class rooms so students get more one on one time. The principal and all the staff from teachers to librarians are very professional and helpful. I would recommend anyone to go to Dixie. Only thing I worry about is where he will go when he leaves Dixie.

My son is in his second year at Dixie and we couldn't be happier! The principal and teachers are absolutely wonderful!! Dixie is a small, close-knit school that really focuses on each child individually. My son has excelled at Dixie. The principal is amazing! He runs the school in a very structured, yet fun, enviroment for the kids. Dixie excels when it comes to testing and making sure each student is working at their best individual level. We've had some experience with a bigger school, where you're just a face in the crowd. At Dixie, you will never experience that. The entire staff makes you feel wanted and appreciated, students and parents, alike. We couldn't ask for a better school or staff.

Dixie is the greatest. Principal and faculty are outstanding educators and my child loves going to Dixie. It is nice in todays world to have a place to send your child to that is safe and teaches the values she needs to excel.

I love Dixie Elementary School. It is a small and family oriented school. The principal is great and very good with the students and teachers. I feel my child has been taught by exceptionally trained and professional teachers. My child is in fourth grade this year and the only concern I have is when he leaves Dixie where will he go to school. The middle school defintely needs a great deal of help. Hopefully the leaders of Russell County School Board and our Superintendent will help to make it better. Overall, Dixie Elementary is off the chart in my books.

The principal is a team player and really strives for the best in the children, but the school needs more money and more opportunities for extracurricular activities and educational tools that simply are not available. Currently, there is no program available for gifted children.
