I have 2 daughters attending Dabbs, and they are both excelling in school. The administration runs the school efficiently and are always welcoming to both students and parents. Each teacher that the girls have had has been wonderful, and we have loved them. I expect great things in the future from Dabbs!

It was a great experience for me to attend this school, as it brought me to the real world. Because of the teachers and faculty, I was able to be where I am now, Choate Rosemary Hall, a boarding school in Connecticut.

We have some of the best and brightest teachers and students at this school. The only complaints I have our budget cuts and larger classes but those are really out of the hands of the school.
