I have to say that my son is new to Dodson Elementary. He has a speech delay and has always been placed in classes where I feel like he is ignored. However, at Dodson, we felt that he is so happy with his class and his teacher. Mrs. Robert really makes him feel comfortable and she is so friendly. I truly believe that she understands him in a way no other teacher has before. Also the office staff is so nice and helpful.
My girls have been going to Dodson for 2 years. At first, it was hard adjusting to a new school for them. The staff has helped make the transition easier. Anytime I have a question, they are always helpful and pleasant! The Office Staff is absolutely great! The Principal is usually available if there is an issue. Many times you can just find him outside interacting w/ the kids, just to see how their day was, as he helps out at the busses. I'm glad we are here at Dodson!
I am a parent at Dodson Elementary School and have been involved since 2001, my daughter is now in sixth grade and our experience has been nothing but GREAT!The staff, teachers and environment in general is the BEST I could ever ask for.
I have been involved with Dodson for the past 5 years, and I can honestly say, I wouldn't want my kids to go to any other school. The entire school atmosphere is very community oriented and it is refreshing to see such a welcoming environment. The staff is top-notch and they truly care about the students that they see everyday. The prinicipal is extremely well educated and really cares about what happens to her charges.
Caring teachers ! we moved to reno 8/04 , just in time for my 4th grade son to start fresh, it was rather traumatic for him leaving his old neighborhood and friends. his speech problems intensified and his wonderful teacher Ms. Hudson was right there - in 2 weeks my son was getting speech therapy and extra attention that was genuinly needed. By years end he was doing fine. Very caring staff.
Approachable administration and staff. Child complains about hot lunch selections, but I think that is a system wide issue. Good family oriented neighborhood. Safe area. Large playground. Need more play equipment.
My son has gone to this school for two years now and we absolutely love it! It has awesome teachers and great learning opportunities for the kids. Campus is very clean and well kept. The staff is excellent with the kids and is there in both positive and negative situtations.
