My daughter attended a private preschool. Not being from the area I had a hard time debating on sending her to private school. With reluctance I sent her to Dickson and have had the most wonderful experience. I do not have enough room here to write about all the wonderful things. Mrs. Muck (lower elem principal) seem to know all the kids by name the 1st week of school. Mrs. Stinson and Mrs. Lang were awesome teachers. We are now in the Upper Elementary level and proves so far to be just as wonderful. I love the small school atmosphere. I am truly thankful that my child is in such a caring and nurturing environment. The aftercare program (Learning Zone) is a godsend! I don t know what I would do without it.

Wonderful school. This school stays true to their moto. No child is left behind. Every teacher I've encountered at Dickson wants every child to achieve a future. Teachers view everyone as an equal which helps each child feel comfortable being themselves. My child is a third generation attending Dickson. You know you have a great school if parents of parents do all they can to live in the district. I know my child will be a caring child because that is what he receives at home and at his school.

The Dickson school system is great. I am a graduate and have a daughter who attends there. My mom and her siblings are graduates as well. Our family has been involved in this school system for over 30 yrs and are absolutely 100% satisfied. The teachers and staff are wonderful. I wouldn't send my daughter anywhere else!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
