The entire staff, with the exception of a few good teachers, are failing our children at Dixie Elementary. The school is agenda driven, unorganized and filled with teachers who were former "D+" students when they attended school. Outrageous. The Principal as of this year should tender her resignation and allow for a more experienced and firm principal to take over. This is what happens when the teachers and the principals alike have an overwhelming sense of job security. Someone please hold them to a higher standard. These kids are our future.

Dixie Elementary is a GREAT school. Mrs. Ward really has it going on. And Mrs. Alderete is amazing.

This is my grandson's second year at Dixie. Class size ratio is good; having come from Northern California where normal class size is 34 to 1. His first teacher retired and thank God she did. I was not impressed with her overall skills. His second teacher was great. What a remarkable difference I saw in him. Physical education/exercise is very important. Children need the physical and mental stimulation. PTA appears to be 'Stepford Wives Club.' Limited information is sent home and functionality of the 'PTA' appears to be on a 'need to know' basis! What does the PTA really do to benefit the students and/or parents??????

The schools academic programs are great. And thier music programs are excellent too. But I really do think that they need extra curricular activities and more parents involvement in thier school. And I do think that p.E. Is very important in a childs live because they do need some kind of excersie in thier lives too and by doing that it will help the child keep fit . Thank,you mrs.Dmairi

My son has attended Dixie for six years straight, and I think that the students there need a better principal as well as a new teaching staff.

This is my daughter's first year at school. She does not seem to be getting the attention she should receive from her teacher. There have been days when she comes with a paper from the teacher saying she did not listen. When I give her just a few minutes and explain to her she does not seem to have a problem with the work at all. I feel that if she is having a hard time. The teacher needs to inform me personally. So we can figure out what steps need to be taken in the best interst of my daughter.
