I use to love Dimon...But the last year has been an Epic fail....They need New Leadership!!! Someone that knows how to communicate with parents.via conference or return calls......A Principal that knows how to respond to a Great parent that has concerns about there child and there classroom environment...But Good luck with that!!!.Instead you'll only receive someone not visible...and an eccessive amount of rude recordings.....I rate Dimon 2stars...and that's for some of the teachers that actually care about the students and their education.

I am very impressed with the Magnet school instructors, Mrs. Hayes was an outstanding 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Johnson was also a great teacher and I am impressed with Mrs. McDavid , my daughter's second grade teacher. With that said, I am disappointed with the school overall and it's lack of programs and focus on Math and Science. I can't blame the school because the district needs to do more in regards to funding and implementing programs that build the whole child. Dimon's math scores are below the state's but it's a Math and Science school, help me understand why and why the state and the district is not doing more to ensure schools are provided the proper resources to create life-long learners with the skills to compete in the 21st century? How is it that Britt David has the educational solution yet the rest of our student's continue to suffer???

This school may not be in what 'Columbus' conciders the best location because its located between St. Mary's and Buena Vista Rd. But realize that the school has an academic program out this world!! My daughter will be going into the 5th grade next year and in the two years she has attended, she has had a chance to be part of the Student Counsil and part of the media broadcasting program and not to mention she has been a straight A student... She has lots and lots of homework ! The staff is great...

My child has been at Dimon since Kindergarten and is now in the 2nd grade. So far I am pleased with the teachers and the staff. So far my child has maintained very good grades. I attribute that to the great head start and caring environment that my child received from Mrs. Johnson and Ms. Lewis in Kindergarten, which motivated my child to put forth every effort to do well. This has given the other teachers and my child what is needed to continue to enhance my child's abilities. Parents and teachers must work together and be consistent with helping and encouraging children to stay on task with their work and conduct. This is not an easy thing to do but it will be worth it in the end.

My daughter was in Dimon Magnet for the beginning of her kindergarden year with Mrs. Johnson and Ms. Lewis. Her experience with classroom rules and learning was excellent. She is enthusiastic about reading and math all due to the guidance of Ms. Johnson and Ms. Lewis. I hope her other teachers at other schools could be so well.

My child attended Dimon Magnet Elementary during the 2002 - 2003 school year and he was in Mrs. D. Johnson's Magnet Kindergarten class. My child's first experience in grade school has been fantastic due to the patience and encouragement demonstrated by Mrs. Johnson and Ms. Lewis, the para-professional. It is my hope that my son's 1st grade Magnet Teacher can meet the high expectations established by Mrs. Johnson and Ms. Lewis. Our family's experience at Dimon from the PTA to the classroom has been great.
