I have 2 in Elementary and 1 in Middle. I am very impressed with the Elementary. This is our first year here, so I don't know about all of the programs or teachers, but my second grader has an amazing teacher. My fourth grader also has 2 good teachers. There seems to be a very active PTA program from what I could tell from the first meeting. I was worried when we moved here from MS. I had heard horror stories that pretty much all of the Memphis and surrounding area public schools were to be avoided at all cost. That does not seem to be true of Dexter. I just hope that it continues to remain a county school. They have a good reading program in place, and I look forward to learning more about the other academic and the extracurricular programs.
Dexter Elementary has been a fantastic school for our child. She attended 2004-2005 3rd grade, and 2005-2006 4th grade. Each year she has had a wonderful teacher. Dexter Elementary has a nurturing environment that was welcoming to our child, and to ourselves, the parents. The school is still new, and has a wonderful layout. Each classroom is a nice size. The PTA is fantastic, and has many opportunities for you to become involved with your childs school. There are Academic Clubs for all ages, Mouse Squad, Yearbook, Art, and many others. The Support Staff are fantastic. The Educators at Dexter are commited to helping your child achieve their potential as students and as people interacting with others. Dexter Elementary has been a wonderful educational experience for our child. Go Dexter Patriots! Thank you.
I gained custody of my 4 kids in January, my 3 sons all attend Dexter. This is their first year in public schools. I have been very pleased with the staff and teachers. It will be sad when it is annexed into the city. Ms. Johnson is truly a major asset to the school and my family.
My daughter has attended Dexter Elementry for 3 years. We have had outstanding results from our teachers. The principal is hard to get to know & shes not at all friendly. The other staff in the office you just have to get to know.
I did alot of reserch on differnt school in the cordova area and me and my husband desided on dexter and now i really wish we would have went with another school I was really disappointed in the school over all . The teachers were really cold toward us they were not welcoming at all and our son has allways liked his teachers exceped at this school he does'nt. I am not saying it is an awful school i am just saying I was highly disappointed and If I could do it over again I would have put him in another school.If I were to rate this school i would give it a 2 maybe b/c of the teachers and the rooms have no stimulation for the kids.
I am so thankful for the great transition into school that the Kindergarten teachers offer. My son had Mrs. Aiken. She was wonderful. I would like to thank the school for the understanding and consideration that they gave through a trying first year.
This is a terrific school! All the teachers truly care and work directly with your child. I have established a relationship with the principal and she has done a wonderful job with the children!
My children have been going to Dexter since the first year that it was open and so far have both enjoyed attending the school. So far, I have been very pleased with the teachers. My son has ADHD and an Anxiety Disorder and everyone has been very helpful and understanding.
I have been very pleased observing Dexter Elementary grow in the two years of operation. I am sure this year will be another productive year with students working to their full potential under a Great Administrative Team.
