The people there, students, teachers, and parents, are fabulous to work with. It feels like a family and all are very supportive. Everyone gives so much of themselves.
My son goes to this school he has had great interaction with all the staff and they have great lines of communication with me
Both of my children went here for 6 years. For all grades the focus on reading is so strong that other subjects are just about ingnored. Any child that is having trouble with math has no chance of getting extra help. Science is almost forgotten. My son did have a good time and the parent involvement has declined in the last few years. I did not realize that my lasting impression was was quite this bad
My child or I have never had any bad experiences at this school. I am very pleased with everything.
I am very satisfied with Lake Dolloff. Everyone is very friendly. My children really seem to enjoy the school the most.
This school has a very hard working PTA. The test scores are solid, and the music/PE teachers are exceptional. Not all of the teachers are great, but there is a least 1 superb teacher at each grade level.
Lake Dolloff has a very disturbing meal time. My child is always being rushed to eat lunch so that the other kids could be able to fit. The cafeteria really needs to be expanded in order to avoid this. Otherwise, they should seek other alternatives into perhaps, having the younger/older children have lunch in their homerooms, so that they will not have to be rushed! My child always comes home complaining and starving. Another bothersome thing about lunch is, if a child does not finish his/her food that are in sealed packages. They are not allowed to keep it, in fact, they will get in trouble for trying to take their own food home that we pay for. They also do not allow children to bring their own snacks for recesses, let alone not allowing them to keep their own leftovers. Its almost as if they want our children to starve!
Lake Dolloff is a great school, there is so much support and enthusiasm at this school. My child has loved his experience there. The teachers really care about the kids and give them their all. I would highly recommend this school!
From my own experience, the quality of teachers varies greatly. My son graduated with no research or study skills beyond what I'd taught him myself. My daughter graduates next year and was lucky enough to get a wonderful 4th grade teacher who moved up with her class to 5th grade. Success here definitely rests on parent involvement with their children's education.
