Great and Diverse school. The teachers are attentive and keen on helping your child exceed in every aspect. Whether my kids are in class, gym or on the playground, they have always been taught to respect peers, help and look after one and other. Grd 5 are great role models to younger kids, with helping them in library, or playing with them in indoor recess or just guiding them when it comes to making right decisions. This school is one of the highest in educating standards.
Can't wait for my child to be OUT of this school! She had some amazing years but the last few were terrible! The teachers have been mean! My child has not been in trouble (that I know of from her or the school) and the things that have been said to her are embarrassing and hurtful and have had nothing to do with her education or behavior. Some of the teachers are fantastic, I hope your child gets one of them!
We actually attend Dodson as school of choice as it such an excellent school. Everyone is very involved from the teachers to the admin to even the parents. Top notch reading programs. Would like to see a little more possibilities for math advancement though but I have had children attend other PCCS schools and Dodson is well above those.
Overall we are very happy with Dodson. I have both my kids going to this school. Their reading program is top notch. They challenge kids in the classroom, quizzes, book bag programs, nice library and what not. I haven't seen the same focus in math though. They are above any average michigan school in math, but that is not enough. They should go beyond the everyday math and challenge kids more and more. If they put more effort into math programs, I wouldn't be surprised if they make it to michigan Top 10
Dodson has highly experienced teachers. We are very happy with Dodson. The teachers are great and the children learn alot and are very successful because of the teachers. Excellent school!!! Best move we made coming to this school district and having this elementary in our neighborhood!!!
Dodson is an excellent school, especially for children with learning disablities. The staff differentiates for all levels of learning abilites, and provides innoviative interesting curriculum. Good job!
