Over the summer our family moved to South Lyon and we are extremely pleased with Dolsen Elementary School. The principal. teachers, and office staff have been extremely helpful and welcomed us to the school community. Our children are being challenged and love going to school everyday. We are looking forward to our next few years at Dolsen! Go Dolphins!

When my daughter moved from Novi schools I was very nervous to send her to Dolsen Elementary, but when I met the teachers and staff I was very pleased with the help from them. They all made my child fit in with all the kids. My child loves her teacher and has good friends. We couldn't find a better school then this one. I would like to request the principal to make the cirriculum a little challenging for the students, also put in more choices in the lunch menu. Thank You

My daughters teacher is so great but the principal is a JOKE. Because of her some terrific teachers are leaving for other schools, and honestly my kids will not go back to Dolsen next year because of this principal. Come on South Lyon Superintendant get it together and see she is a PROBLEM!!! If it werent for the teachers I would have rated this school 0 STARS!!

Great school. I like the fact that it's small and my child is not just a number. We just moved from Novi Schools, for several reasons, and could not be happier.

All three of my children attended Dolsen Elementary School. The teachers, principal and all other staff members are awesome. They genuinely care about the individual needs of each student. The small school has a family atmosphere that assists children and families in a variety of positive ways! I am proud to say that Dolsen is one of the best elementary schools in the state of Michigan!

I couldn't be happier with Dolsen!!!! The smaller class size is a plus and the office staff is amazing. I have dealt with several school districts and this elementary school is amazing! Can't wait to send my last 2 (out of 4 children) here for their primary education:)

I think that this school is very poorly ran. There is not enough experience in the staff. I have one child enrolled and wish I could transfer. I will never send any of my other kids there again!

I have never worked with a teaching staff who is more dedicated to reaching each and every student. The school works as a positive community where everyone is working together in the best interest for the students. I love working at Dolsen!

I love the smaller size of the school and the closeness it creates. The staff, especially the teachers are wonderful, the curriculum is great and I don't foresee myself ever moving out of the district until my children are done with school.

Ann L Dolsen Elementary School is a great school. Every staff member I have met are great people. When there is a problem or concern they are never hesitant to address it. I am always very comfortable with my children there and know they are getting a solid start in education and are in a very safe and capable environment.

The one on one attention the children receive. It is a smaller school, and the faculty and children all know eachother. We had the option to attend a newer school in the same district, my children and myself opted to stay at Dolsen and we have have been very happy.

It is a smaller school with about 340 students. This makes for a tight knit community atomsphere. The teachers are caring and providing the students with an excellent education. One teacher even took her personal time to see her students at thier activities outside of school - baseball game, dance recital.

It is hard to choose one thing in particular that I love about Dolsen! It is a small school with a family-feel. There are always smiling faces and welcoming hellos. The teachers create very inviting learning environments, & my students are proud to say they go to Dolsen! They love to get up and go each day.

This is an excellent school with an excellent staff. The principle, Mr. Soubly, makes the difference! My children went there and have gone on to do great things in middle school and high school. A good foundation makes all the difference in the world.

I 'LOVE' Dolsen!! The teachers and the principal make it a fun school for the kids to attend. The student to teacher ratio in the classrooms are perfect. And the teachers spend time with each and every one of their students to make sure they understand all that has been taught. I would recommend this school to everybody I know.
