Develops character: Strongly agree

It is obvious that the teachers do lessons on character. They also give out awards for responsibility, etc.

Dixon Montessori is a wonderful school. Our kids love their teachers and I love that they are learning.


Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
The kids are so nice here. The teachers and school leaders are pretty strict when kids make bad choices.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
The school leadership is great. They are approachable. Mr. Ernest stands at the gate every morning to greet the students.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teachers we have had, Ms. Patty, Ms. Melissa and Ms. Valorie have all been strong teachers. Our kids come home excited about what they learned.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Ms. Melissa gives homework weekly, it's mostly math and spelling. Our son knows how to do all of his homework, he just needs to memorize it.



- a
Bullying is not addressed here, children are singled out, the director does not care to deal with issues. Waste of taxpayer money - this is a school for the children of friends of the board and the children of the director and administrators and nothing more. And do not let the name Montessori fool you, this school could not be less Montessori.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
Teachers are allowed to belittle students and when reported the director does nothing about it, aside from blame it on the child.


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
This school encourages students to band together against other students and lie in order to get children in trouble for things they didn't do.

I have 3 kids at DMCS..The teachers are excellent, no complaints there. The only complain is the Administration! Every time I go to the front office I get a smartass, condescending reply..The main culprit is Tammy, quick to jump up give you an incomplete answer with an attitude. Don't ask Shanna the lunch lady anything about the lunch program. .i. e...why do you keep running out of main entr e meals ever day and feed my kids PBJ $4...the principal sits idle and let's all this happen because they're chummy and she has a similar attitude. Poorly managed organization. Too bad, this could be a great school.
