The best thing that can happen to this school is the state take it over!!Due to a majority of school board members actions Dundee has earned the nickname "The Mine Field' watch were you step. If a certain member of the board doesn't like you watch out he will get rid of you and the majority of the school board memebers will follow him like sheep. Thanks to this person they are now in yet another superintendent search, (sixth one since Bob left) a elementary principle search, a Technology specialist, and a transportation director just to name a few. The high school principle is off to Iraq for a year and the middle school principle is on maternity leave! They have to cut over a million dollars out of the budget with the current interm superintendent who probably could care less since he leaves in June! This school is having some serious problems all becasue of a few memebers of the school board that need to be recalled. Can no longer recomend it, glad I no longer have kids in there.

If you saw the behavior of the some of the Teachers, you would understand the problem. My daughters math teacher uses her cell phone during class. The focus is definately not on students.

The real problem with the entire school system is the community is totally afraid of change. Which is to be expected with a small farming community. The only sport the High SChool seems to be concerned with is Wrestling, every other sport gets the back seat. If your child is a wrestler than the School and town will bend over backwards for them. If they play any other sport the equipment and time spent is non exsistent. It is a small town school and there are the small town problems that come with it. They community and school board needs to quickly realize that there is alot of building going on in Dundee and the same ol same ol of yesterdays is not going to be tolerated any more with the new arrivals of people from outside. I think the town will be slow to accept change.

Terrible school. My stepson goes there and I question the classes and work, or lack thereof, he is given on a daily basis. He's been in the 'resource room' classes through his high school career, practically being given the answers on a silver platter. I finally had to contact a teacher after he had been tardy to a class 10 times and asked the teacher to please give him a detention so he can see in the real world that you can't just be late. His sport of choice was put before his schooling, when half the time with his grades and attitude, he should not have even been able to participate. Totally agree with the reviewer who said it's good if you want your kid to skate on through. No preparation for the real world or going on to college.

Dundee Schools are great schools if you want your child to 'skate' through. The comments about sports are true. Something that I thought was amazing, is that when my child turned 18 she was sent a letter explaining all of her rights as a legal adult. To sum that letter up, it was a reassuring way for her to say, she can do what she wants and doesn't have to listen to us anymore. She was passed through all of her classes even though she reads at a 8th grade level and writes at a 6th grade level. If you ask for help, you are told to hire a private tutor. She never learned how to balance a check book or write an essay, but she knows that shedding a tear, or wearing a short skirt for certain teachers will get her to the next grade. Stay Away!

I am currently on the last of 5 kids that went through Dundee K-12. Overall it has been a pretty good school but since the school has just recently had a huge change in leadership from board members to a new superintendent I think a lot of the past problems will get fixed. One of the biggest issues the new leaders will have are issues in the middle school especially the Connected Math program. If you haven't read about this I encourage you to do a web search on the subject. In my opinion this program is the worst problem Dundee has, but there is hope for the future. Three of my kids that graduated have went onto college.

The parents don't seem to really be involved, or care about their childrens grades as much as they do about the sports, its a lot of politics. You have to have a name in this school system, or you basically don't get to play that much. They really should have an orchestra, their are others that play instruments that belong in an orchestra, it would be really nice. I think choir should not count as a class, if your child sings, let them sing, and still take some important classes to count towards college. Would be nice to have more of a choice of classes for high school and availability to take more than one class freshman year.

Dundee Schools has been excellent for my children. All students are encouraged to do well academically and to participate in some extracurricular activity (there are choices besides sports) The track and cross country teams are the best for self esteem. I am very satisfied. In my experience the administration has been very receptive to any concerns I have had and have resolved issues timely.

this school is horrible place to send your child if she/he has emotional issues . This school is very cheap, when it comes arts/music, and often and understaff the counseling department. Myself, a former student would not reccomend sending any child there, unless your a parent who wants ther child to only be able to excell in sports, because we all know where the art money is going.
