Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I have not been impressed with this school either. I agree that Ms.J and Ms. Farese are great teachers. However, third and fourth grades were totally focused on the test scores. The curriculum was uninspiring and students as personalities did not matter.

Not that great of a school. The teachers are rude and don't stop other children form harassing my child. Dallin is a good school, but needs to pay more attention to the students.

Dallin is an excellent school with caring faculty and administration. The school is brand new, so the budget is a bit tight, but they definitely planned for the future. Mrs J is a long time Arlington favorite. Anyone lucky enough to have her as a teacher will never forget her.

We are new this year, but have not been impressed with the teachers or curriculum at the Dallin. Our [student] is having a terrible year with a dull, impatient teacher and a very boring, uninspiring and unchallenging curriculum. Our first grader is having a better year, with a first-year teacher, who is very on the ball and ambitious, though unseasoned. There is much parent involvement, which is great. From our limited experience this year, we are considering changing schools based on the poor academic challenge for our son.
