Dieck Elementary School3

I went to Dieck Elementary from Kindergarten through 5th grade. The large majority of staff are caring and active in their jobs, making an effort to help the students, but as anywhere a few were not, however I have heard that some of the over the top ones have since been let go. The education was ok, though classes tend to move quickly for young minds which is fine if you're grasping the concept, but if I didn't understand a subject it was extremely difficult to keep up. I missed out learning how to tell time and didn't get it. My teacher moved on and left me in the dark on the matter, it was never covered again. As it gets embarrassing to ask people to check your watch for you, I finally taught myself. At age thirteen, at a different school. Also, while I was there bullying was a problem that was rarely addressed but was starting to run rampant by the time I graduated from Dieck and the middle school was entirely worse on the matter.
My son is in 1st grade this year and also attended last year there. I have been so pleased with his education so far. He has some speech concerns and was placed in the speech program which has proved to help him tremendously. All the staff is very friendly and I believe sincerely care about the students and their education.
