The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The teachers that I have encountered are loving and hard-working. I appreciate that the school is teaching children to be healthy by playing outside often (2-3 recesses per day),does not use food rewards, and discourages sweets for celebrations. The curriculum addresses the lowest-level learners in the classroom, leaving average and advanced learners under-challenged. There are lots of accommodations for learning difficulties, but no gifted program.

my daughter has 28 students in her second grade class, some have 30. The teachers do the best they can but class size demands are out of control and projected to get worse. If I were moving I would want to know 30 students per class is the acceptable norm in Dexter.

Bates is great. The entire is staff is friendly, positve and all seem to be looking out for all the kids in the school. It has a very relaxed, homey feel.

It's been the school for all our grandkids for many years, and they have been the happiest grandkids because all the teachers there are just wonderful and really take an interest in each and everyone of the kids learning abilities...
