Dixon is has an excellent principal who truly cares about her school and students. She cares about everyone's feeling and point of view. I have had problems with other schools in the past but once I transferred my four children to Dixon, they have been happy. Dixon has the best qualified teachers. The schools pays for a bus to take the children to the recreation center on Tuesday and Thursday. I pick my children up and they always have good days at school. My oldest daughter goes to 21st century and My second daughter goes to Golf, 21st century and Rec, my youngest daughter goes to Rec everyday after school and my son goes to mentoring and rec. They're grades have improved and I'm proud of the school and my children. Thank you for viewing.
Dixon Educational Learning Academy who have dedicated teachers that are focused on the students educational achievements.
This is my third year at Dixon. We have an awesome staff. There are some of the brightest teachers that I have ever worked with. They work hard both when the students are there and when they are preparing their lessons. Everyone goes to many professional developments to learn and understand the best practices for teaching. I am proud to be part of the Dixon staff.
Dixon Educational Learning Academy is a jewel in the city of Detroit. All staff members, from the top down, work hard to form positive relationships with students and their families. Our teachers are dedicated and willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to help students learn. Moreover, all staff members genuinely care about our students. We provide a wide network of adults who are wiling to listen, give advice, or just offer a hug when necessary. At Dixon, we are out students' biggest cheerleaders.
My granddaughter attends Dixon and had a wonderful learning experience with Ms. Cooks and Ms. Priebe in the first grade. The extra effort and time they put into my grandchild definitely assisted in her learning process in the area of math. The principal goes beyond her duty in making sure the children have different cultural activities. I am very impressed with the concern of Dr. Beard and her social work staff when it came to the students being in uniform and the fact they even supplied new uniforms for students I rate this school as excellent!!!
Dixon has excellent dedicated teachers and a very supportive principal...teachers care about not only the education of the students but for their overall well being...parents, students and staff are always welcome by the principal whether it is for advice...a pat on the back...reassurance or a shoulder to cry on. Dixon provides a warm, secure... yet challenging environment for students and parents as well. The well being of all students is first and foremost at Dixon. I am very fortunate to be a teacher at Dixon.
You won't find a more dedicated, compassionate, and supportive staff anywhere in the city of Detroit. Dixon is a unique school that encompasses the whole child meeting their academic, social and emotional needs. The principal, teachers, counselors, and support staff go above and beyond to make sure students and families have what they need to feel safe, comfortable, and well cared for while at school. Whether you need advice, a hug, a reassuring pat on the back, a good laugh, or a warm smile you'll find it here at Dixon. I am very proud to be a member of such an awesome school!
My grandchildren attend Dixion School and I must say I am not pleased at all. My granddaughter is a speical ed. student who did not receiving social work services until late March, close to the end of the school year. In addition, she says her teacher takes her papers and throw them away while standing in frnt of her. She calls her names and her school work and self esteem have been damaged since atending this school.
Like most schools, Dixon could use some work. For example, signs posted outside saying that they have more afterschool activities than are actually there. However, for what it lacks, Dixon makes up for it with an excellent teaching staff as well as wonderful social workers. Mr. Merrill, Mrs. Bennett, and Mrs. Thomas are some of the best teachers that Dixon has to offer.
awesome school...loving staff and GREAT cheer team and after school programs! One of the best schools in detroit!
I highly recommend Dixon Elementary School to any parent or guardian. It has been the very best learning environment for my child. The teacher and other staff members 'go the extra mile' to ensure students are learning to the best of their ability. I couldn't have chosen a better school the Dixon Elementary.
