I have juniors in high school whom have attending this elementary school and also have a kindergartener and sixth grader there this year. This school has significantly declined in overall care and concern for students and families. There are no afterschool activities. The teachers are very "clicky" meaning if you are not in the crew, they will openly treat you poorly as a parent. The Secretary for the last 2 years is HORRIBLE she doesn't know how to do ANYTHING file paperwork to pull up grades on the intranet site. The principal for the last two years has been a disgrace. She is very into herself and not at all into the families. There is no overall care and concern for every family that walks through the door as there should be. This was not always the case. And I am very disappointed that I will have to transfer my kindergartener to another school because this last year has been horrible for our family. Do not send your child here if you are looking for a school family.

The class sizes are small and the teachers spent one on ones time with every child. All the staff from the kitchen staff to the secretary know you and your child's name which makes you feel really cared for. It's like a private school with out the extra cost!

Terribly displeased with this school. There are now no after school activities, they go on no field trips, the teachers are completely unable to handle their classes, there are too many distractions in the loud classrooms, am transferring my child next week.

We have 2nd and 3rd grade boys who've been at Dodge since kindergarten. My kids are very bright. The teachers and support staff have been very good at keeping them challenged and not letting them slip through the cracks. We especially appreciated the principal's wisdom as we tried to work out the best scenario for our kindergarten student last year as he switched to 2nd grade this year. The PTA and student council are active and there are extras like chess club, just say no club, after school kids club, and more. I'd recommend Dodge to anyone.
