Emily Dickinson Elementary has a great teaching staff. The school has a wonderful parent volunteer community and the principal is a very effective leader. The children at the school feel safe and experience many wonderful after school programs that are served by an organized PTSA. I am so pleased that we purchased a home in this community.

My child attended Headstart at this school. What a wonderful experience with a wonderful group of teachers. Ms. Jeannie Parks and Miss Kelsey Neals are FANTASTIC. A++++

Had a great experience at Dickinson. My two kids attended there for K, 1st, and 2nd. Both had wonderful, caring teachers who helped them progress academically. My older one struggles in school, and we really benefited from all the specialists on staff (that wouldn't be there without the special ed program). They are a wonderful resource if you need them.

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.

I hope school can focus more on Geo, reading and math. current curriculums are not chaanllenge to my daughter. She said everything is simple for her. She sings songs everyday learning from her half-day private school.

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.
