We loved this school most of the time my daughter was here, but do know that the principal changed around 2009 and the new one is not the same one that got all the great comments in the earlier reviews. The prior principal was very nurturing and the new one is very rigid and strict. Just so you know going in. We didn't send my younger daughter there and the principal change was a main reason, but if you didn't know about the difference in environment between the two it might not bother you.

Dewey is an awesome school. i went here the last 5 years (since kg), and i will miss it. class of 2011!! it was odd though...things like littering, and youd get detention or something, but fights and scuffles and food fights nobody noticed anything. like they put the blinders on. still a good school though.

Dewey is a great school. The teachers are top notch. The enrichment classes (languages, art, gym, gifted) are excellent.

My experience at Dewey was good. The Principal is very in tune to each student and is always available to address concerns. Dewey has a gifted program that is outstanding. Very one on one.

This is a wonderful school. The teachers are great and really love to work with their students. The students and teachers also work very hard to make each holiday performance something to remember!

I have 4 children attending Dewey ISS. We are thrilled with the education our children are getting. The school is full of dedicated teachers and staff...under the leadership of an amazing principal. There are many negative stereotypes surrounding the public schools...but they are full of families with dedicated parents that have many educational options available to them...and they choose the public schools. Great things are happening at Dewey!
