My son's in the 5th grade and he keeps coming home saying he has another substitute, that he and some other students got sent to the 1st grade class because his teacher was not present that day. Basically what my issue is, is that my child shouldn't be in a 1st grade class because his teacher doesn't come to school.

I truly love Dickison! The staff is great and they treat the kids as if they were their own children. They are always there and never afraid to offer their help if someone needs it no matter the nationailty of a parent or student. The principal is very into her students and makes sure they are getting the best education and care that they can get. However, I do feel sorry for the staff because they deal with some many issues from parents, childrens home life and their emotional problems they bring to school with them. Over all this is a very productive school! Dont pay any attention to those with negative thoughts of this school.... All I want to say is keep up the good work Dolphin's Students & Staff you're totally awesome!

The principal does not make her self available to the parents that actually care about their kids education,some of the teachers are rude and curse at the students, very disorganized I just moved in the area and i regret sending my child to this school I would rather drive to a school that is worth it.I totally agree to any parent who values their kids education don't send your child to this school.

Because teachers are like a family. We look out for one another. We support each other professional and personally.

This school needs lots of help I will not allow my child to attend another year at this school. The staff is laid back and the students are from homes that I think has no home training what so ever. So if you are a parent that cares about the school your child attends don't send them to DICKISON

Need to get better playground and provide more toys and balls for the kids to play with. Need to serve better and healthier lunches. Need to have more activities and plays and bigger auditorium.Better books and more complicated curriculums.
