Teachers at Didion overall, are experienced and do an excellent job. There is a lot of parent invovlement and support for teachers. There is an after school program and some activities for elementary students. Aside from sports, there are not many after school activities for middle schoolers.For the most part, we have had a good experience at this school.
This is the best school in the district. The principal is very hands-on, and involved in everything. The teachers are passionate about what they do. My child has been here since kindergarten, and will soon exit the middle school. It's unfortunate there are no high schools that can match Didion's quality.
An enthusiastic, involved and supportive principal sets the tone for this terrific school. Excellent for gifted students, promoting extra activities to help them grow emotionally, as well as strong academics.
This school provides a rigorus academic envronment for all students. The school has an excellent reputation, and outscores all other SCUDS school in the annual STAR tests. The teachers are dedicated to the intellectual, physical, emotional, cultural, and social advancement of all students. Parents are exceptionally active at Didion. Parents are found on campus throughout the school day, volunteering to do all the little and big jobs that make Didion the outstanding school it is. The middle school consistantly wins district-wide academic and sporting competitions. The close knit staff works diligently to insure that all students have access to the curriculum, and succeed.
Didion's Teachers are committed to the children of this community. They prove this through their active involvement during school hours, as well as after. After school they tutor in Math and Reading. Many live in the community and actively particpate in fundraising events to help cover costs of programs (music, science and art) the district cannot afford. Exemplary example of Parents, Principal, Staff and Teacher's working together to provide quality learning evironments which promote sound core curriculum foundation for all children attending Didion K-8th School.
Didion is a great school. The parent involvement is above and beyond. However, the focus leans a bit too much towards a skills based curriculum and high test scores. It would be nice to see a little more flexibility and support for those students who need an extra boost in their self esteem. The diversity is low. Basically two goups, Asians and others, which could lead to cliques. Overall, the teacher quality is high and students seem happy.
Didion has made my Elementry and middle school years pleasentable. They have also provide a save and good learning enviroment. In sixth grade through eithgrade they will propare you for highschool, which is awesome. It's very hard to find a school in Sacramento that has lots of parent and teacher support, a safe and a good learning envirment, high academics, and a great faculty.
This is hands down the best school in the Sacramento area. We are fortunate that our child gets to attend this institution, and wish every school in the state could run as efficiently, and had such passionate teachers and parents. Parental involvement absolutely helps a school become successful, so for parents who enjoy grousing about their own schools, maybe they should take a more pro-active stance to change things? Didion isn't an exceptional school simply because there is a campus on a couple of acres of land. It's an exceptional school because the faculty and the parents work together as a team! I'm always amazed at what goes on at this campus, and have never seen the amount of dedication everyone gives the school. A+!
