Thank you Ms. Williamson and Ms. Patrick (Pre-K teachers) for being bright spots in such a disappointing school. They need you both desperately.

Amount of homework: Too much
November 16, 2015
Pre-K- 1st is given homework every night even holidays. These little ones are overwhelmed. I tutor 6th graders who don't get as much homework as my 1st grader does.

To teach respect you must show respect. Many of these teachers are yelling their way through the school year. There is a difference between disciplining with a stern voice and yelling at the top of your lungs.

The teachers that are around the students build character in each student whether they like it or not.

My child has been at this school for 6 years and saw a major change within her work effort and I believe its the teachers. Especially Ms Scipio,Ms Marvin, and Ms Vance

Teacher effectiveness: Effective
July 06, 2015
The teachers push the students pass the point and make them strive for advancement. They give the students motivation to want to do better even if that student does not want to do better.

This is the best school ever. I attend it right now. I am a 7th grade student, and i love all my teachers and my princapal. They all do what ever is best for all the students to help us learn. And if we are having trouble they may pull groups to help them better understand.

I used to go to this school back in 2003. I was the only child in my class who smiled and was generally playful. The teachers always treated me with such kindness. This was a nice school, the only downside was the way the other kids treated me. You could call it bullying, but bullying has never bothered me. So this school was a good experience, other than the kids' attitudes and the food in the school cafeteria.

I have a son in the first grade and a son in the third grade at dickeyhill. The first chance I get, I'm transferring my children out. My children are failing, but never once have I received anything from the teachers saying that they need help. My son brings home division homework and never was taught multiplication. I can go on forever, its the worst. I'm so stressed and disgusted with this school.

I am a parent of a son who attends this school. He no longer wants to go to school because he's being bullied verbally. He went from being outside alot when coming home to staying in because majority of the kids that attend the school live nearby. His grades aren't doing well. On several occasions, I've sent a letter stating I'd like a conference w/ all of his teachers. It makes no sense I have to call the school to see when/if I can get a response. Nothing's done about the bullying becuz my child's too afraid to "snitch" on anyone. It's just crazy. I dont want to find out my son's failing when it's too late to correct the problem.

I was a student in Dickey Hill and the staff were always great to me. I am now in the 8th grade and living in New York City and I have kept there values of leadership and kindness in my heart forever. If any one ever see this, you must know this was the best sschool I ever went to for acedemic purposes only. I used to get teased but the staff always made me feel better.

My son is currently a student at Dickey Hill Elementary and he loves the school. The teachers are dedicated and hardworking, and despite the budget deficiencies and shortfalls, do the best that they can with the little that they are given. When my son started preK, he could hardly speak English. His teachers encouraged him and motivated him to the point where he takes pride in excelling - not only in school, but in every aspect of his life. He is now in the second grade and has been on the honor roll 5 times. Once, he was even on the principal's honor roll for maintaining a 90-99% average. The art teacher, Ms. Chance is wonderful, and so is the music teacher, Ms. Parker. Sports activities take place during gym, which is once a week. Parental involvement is increasing, and the school is fast becoming a magnet school. Keep it up Dickey Hill!
