I was very nervous about my daughter attending Dimmitt due to its reputation and other concerned parents. To my surprise she loves it and had a great year. She's been challenged and is in accelerated classes. She's never had a problem with bullying but she has a pretty strong personality, looks older than she is and would stand up for herself if necessary.
Do not let your student come to this school! Its nothing but problems! The kids dont respect the teachers and other kids will pick on yours if your child doesnt seem to "fit in" . The academic level is ok but the enviorment is so not worth your child going through the embarrasement of the school life here at Dimmit. If possible move to a different location to where your student could go to Nielsen or McKnight. So much more worth it!
I am seriously not impressed by this school. After looking at reports of incidents that recently occurred at Dimmitt, I recommend that you do not send your children there, there are many proven bullies. The government needs to fill Dimmit MS with new staff because no matter what they say they will do, IT NEVER SIGNIFICANTLY GETS BETTER. Really. This is just awful.
The staff has completed a total revision of their team setting. The teachers now all work together to plan the curriculum and the office staff work right along with them. They are determined not to leave any child behind.
The parents need to get on the inside of Dimmitt middle school, the part where everythings natural, not acting natural because theirs a parent in the room. Dimmitt's very uncomfortable and its not very often the feeling changes, it seems like the teachers are just trying to get through the day, and don't really mind the changes in the students thats going on around them. The food is pitifulm, the lunch is just tossed on the trays in handfuls and handed out. The way dimmitt is running im surprised, well stunned that the governer okay's our school.
Yes dimmitt has there problems but we are also one of the best schools to got to we have teacher who take the time even if there kids are sick and are staying home to make sure we get our work done and now matter what the teachers will work on not haveing any fightrs this year we have been working on siberbulling and i have been going toschool and was bullied once and hasd it atken care of after 2 days they belive in second chances so if u mess up and now u aren't going to do it they wont suspend u
I Was not pleased with Dimmit Middle School. Well first my daughter went there for year now.(she now is in Mcknight). And,Ever since she has been there she has been bullied & harrased. When I Was in contact with the principle,I Was told that the Dimmit Staff was doing everything in there power to make it a safe enviroment for my child. Well,I was convinced at first. 2 weeks later my daughter came home balling tears. I was angry. So once again im in contact with the principle. I was told that they had a 'talk' with the bullies and that they were under control. NO THEY WERE NOT. A talk? No A SUSPENSiON>Yes. But it did not happen that way.This was an on going problem! Not once were those kids suspended. I finnaly decide enough is enough. Parents,if your thinking about a renton middle school,i suggest Mcknight Middle School. HONESTLY
Dimmitt Middle School is really based on learning targets and is just a great school I would say cause I've learned alot over the past months!
I was so amazed by this school. Based on the area where the school is located I had huge misgivings about my daughter attending there. But once she started it was obvious that they weren't teaching to the 'lowest common denominator'. She had to work hard to get good grades! I was impressed by the involvement of the principal and the teachers. We communicated via email and they kept me completely updated on problems--and good things! Once she had a problem on the bus and they resolved this very quickly. I was really impressed.
I think that there should be a 'b' or 'junior varsity' team for each sport.
I am very happy with Dimmit Middle School. I feel the teachers are very good. The principal I feel has everything together very well as we all know dealing with middle school aged children is somewhat challenging.
I think this is a great school. I am truly impressed at their computer programs. They actually have student technicians helping the computer teacher while learning exstensivly about computers.
As a grandparent I have been very pleased with the staff and students at Dimmitt. My grandson had a great start to his middle school career. There was the opportunity to learn the neccessay skills to help him move through 6th grade with confidence. He finished his first year with a 4.00gpa. The staff is great at helping young people aquire the skills that are needed to be productive, happy young people. This is one of the best schools in the district. The principal is a great leader.
It's been my experience the last three years that a large number of the teacher are only concerned about getting throgh the day. Teachers who's behavior at time's are more immature than the students. The teachers and administrative staff must understand how powerful their words to these young minds are and the unforgetable scars they can leave. I would like to say that the past three years was rewarding...I cannot! On a more positive note; the assistant principal is a true blessing to the school - If Dimmit could find a way to learn from this individual then the school would be a better place for our middle school youth; She is truley a professional.
