Wonderful community of kids and teachers in a great neighborhood! Our kids are really happy here after transitioning out of the city. Great new principal.

I love this school. I think the teachers make a very good effort to help students. The children love their teachers. I have my two grand children there and my older one went there also. The teachers make it interesting to dig into the most difficult courses and do not make the children nervous about testing . Also the security is very good.

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.
