Amount of homework: Too much

There is a lot of homework which is great for the children's learning but a lot for a mother who is working and attending school full time with 2 kidnergarteners. :(

Wonderful school! They use a STEM format and engage the children in multiple activities to increase their level of learning. The teachers are very helpful and truly want to help your child learn. Great choice!!!

I really do not care for this school and the teachers. I disagree with the other comments about the teachers really caring about the students. They might care if you have the perfect student, but a student who struggles academically, they don't seem to care or want to help. I finally took my son out of this school and started homeschooling him because they weren't willing to help him or give any ideas on what we could do at home to help him.

I am not thrilled about the implementation of the "Chicago Math" pilot program. From my understanding this is the only school in the district that is practicing this, and these students are lost when they move on to middle school. Also the "common core " writing assignments seem to be forced, just to say they do it, but the assignments aren't necessarily structured for the strategy. Also, on an administrative level, it seems that we rarely get all of the information required to complete what the school is asking... for example, and this is one of MANY, they send an email asking to complete a parent survey of the school by "clicking the link". No link...then send another expressing the importance, again, no link...I think there were 3 or 4 emails before they get the link on the email. Sometimes it seems they hold themselves to a lower standard than they hold the students.

The teachers at this school are invested and care about the students. I actually decided to send my son on a permissive because I couldn't imagine him going anywhere else. The teachers are excited about being there and seem to really enjoy working together.

I have 3 children at Dyer, my oldest being in the 4th grade. All of my kids have had outstanding teachers. Focus programs are outstanding. Class sizes are small, great teacher student ratio. Music, art, sports are all great programs. Tremendous amount of enrichment activities. We will not move until our kids are all out of Dyer.
