This is the worst school I have ever put my daughter in since we have lived in Atlanta. This school is awful the teachers dress like they are going out to the club, the staff is unprofessional, and the environment is not condusive to learnng. I will not be sending my child to this schoo next year.

This my son's first year at Dobb's and I thought this would be a god place for him to learn. Some of the teachers, office staff, and cafeteria staff are rude to both the parents and the kids. The schools seems to be very disorganized, and parents are informed late, if at all, about things that are happening in the school. Fortunately, my child has a great teacher this year and he is learning so much, but we are unsure if we will keep him there for the next school term.

I think this is a great school that deserves more than a 4 rating. My child is very happy and he is getting a good education.
