Pulled my 3 kids out of this school. Kids were not thriving. School has a 20% special ed population and there was constant pressure to put our kids in special ed programs. Teachers were a mixed bag. Some teachers were great and impressive. Was not at all impressed by administration.
The teachers are compassionate and understanding. They are passionate about the students and working with them for the best interests. The administration staff is known to make mistakes and cover up their mistakes. They do not consider what is in the best interest of students and they make it very difficult to contact them and discuss issues when they arise. A+ for the teachers. D- for the principal and administrative staff.
Dickinson Elementary's marvelous team of teachers and staff have offered our children THE BEST academic environment we could have hoped for. My heart breaks because as a mother, due to my husband's job transfer, for the first time I have experienced the joy of my children going to school while learning and receiving all the help they longed for. There are no words to thank DIckinson's team as well as they truly deserve, anything will be too short to really cover the magnitude of their help and dedication. I will always be grateful to this school, and can only hope to be able to return someday in the future. To the Principal, Mrs. Karen Barker, you have an A+ on your first year. Keep up the great work and motivation you are accomplishing with your team.
