As an involved parent for the past four years, this is the best year yet. The new principle is very involved, very open for teachers, staff, parents, and students, and the all around atmosphere of the school has changed tremendously!!! Dartmouth is not the same school it was.
I am a current and former parent of an older student. When you are looking at these reviews, please look at dates. This year there is a new principal who is very involved and takes care of situations as they arise. She is very available to the students, parents, and staff. This school has done a 180 degree turn since the new principal took over. Give Dartmouth a chance, its a great school!
My daughter goes to this school and I did as well when I was younger. I must agree with the previous post that this school does not handle the bullying situation. My daughter was being bullied by a group of girls and I was told it was 'normal girl cattyness'. My daughter started to follow the same behavior and was labled a bully because she was following the crowd and defending herself. I'm very disappointed of how this school handles these types of issues. One good saving grace is the principal is leaving at the end of this year. Anyone that they get will be better than the one they have. I hope things will get better at this school next year.
My daughter goes to this school and acedemically has succeded greatly. The teachers are helpful and kind and are eager to help. I am however very dissapointed at how they handle conflict and bullying in this school. My daughter has been harrased all year for no reason and the school has done nothing. For the education it is a good school for dicipline not so much.
Dartmouth Elementary is an Excellent school. I went to this school for all five years and I feel I was cared for. These teachers supported with everything I did. They had high expectations but they weren't out of reach for the students who attended it. I would recommend this school for any child who wants to learn and go far in life. Parents this is a good school and I wouln't recommend any other Elementary school.
This school is wonderful! The entire staff was attentive to our son, and he excelled far beyond our expectations. The principal was always available to talk to, and his teacher frequently let us know how he was doing. Very open atmosphere. Very friendly staff. I would definately choose this school above any other elementary school around!
Dartmouth is a school of disapointment. While attending this school, I did not feel comfortable in the enviroment and the principal did not allow a lot extra curicular actvities at this school. I also felt that I was not being pushed hard enough at Dartmouth and felt unprepared for middle school. Dartmouth has a couple of excellent teachers, but I would overall not recomend this school to your child.
