Ditson School students love their school! The teachers and principal (Mr. Downing) are extremely committed to learning, while the DSA helps plan fun activities to ensure the kids have the little extras that make learning fun through fundraising and DSA sponsored events. The "it takes a village" approach provides Ditson children with the best environment to explore their interests, develop their strengths and put in place a firm foundation for their continued education and success!
The administration really needs to have a better curiculum and better teachers. Not everyone is special ed. One can teach the material that is on the MCAS, be creative and teach additional challenging topics. That would be a sign of a good teacher, a good school and a good school system.
I think The Ditson School is a great elementary to send your children. All three of my sisters (including myself) have already graduated from high school. I am currently attending Umass Amherst. I still look back at the Ditson as a great time in my life, a place that taught me alot and helped me grow academically as well as individually. Defiently a safe choice.
