The principal, teachers, and aides at Dorn Primary Center have done an outstanding job of educating our grandson. As a former teacher for 34 years, I appreciate the hard work and positive attitude shown by the entire staff.

This is the best school, I ever seen , start from the principle to the teachers,Every one knew what to do and how to do it, communication between the principle and staff is excellent, the kids love to go to school , altos of activity are held in the school to get the community involve with them, and to get the parents help with the education system because its their job too.

I am currently a teacher at Dorn Primary Center and I am proud to work there. Our staff is dedicated to providing the best educational experience possible to our students. We work hard to differentiate our lessons to challenge all students, and we support all different levels of learners. Dorn Primary Center is one of a kind because our students are our first priority.

My daughter is a student of this school. Previously she went to Noonan's. My daughter was reading in pre-k. At this point because there is a lack of lesson plans my daughter is not being challenged. Everyday I receive papers from school, the papers are all printed from the internet and mass copied (no work for the teacher.) No workbooks, or lessons, etc like when I was younger...I'm paying 8,900 in taxes and have idea what is being done with it. The teacher do not communicate with the parents, there are errors as far as keeping track of attendance. The lunches are not healthy...these are just a few of the problems

You've heard of No Child Left Behind? Well, in this school high achievers and average students are totally left behind. It's a great school if you are ESL. Otherwise, go elsewhere.

The principal is engaged and involved. The teachers care about their charges and go above and beyond for students that need extra help. Both of my kids are on behavioral modification programs and the teachers and the rest of the staff have gone well beyond what anyone would have considered even an above average school system. Both Quin and now Dorn have been a testament to District 117 and the phenomenal teachers in it.

My son just started first grade at this school. Ms. Grasso is an excellent teacher. She has put so much emphasis is making school fun for the kids. My son goes to school with a smile and comes home with a smile and full of energy in telling me about his day. Go Dorn School!!!

Dorn has many extracurricular activities to help parents and children learn together. My children love when I come see their school and each time I am amazed at the progress that they have shown that I sometimes miss at home. Dorn has really mastered helping parents to find the right amount of involvement in their child's education. I am very excited that my children's education got a great jump start at a great school.
