I have 2 young men attending this school and having an excellent experience. Like any school, our involvement with our children and candid discussions with the staff have helped keep everyone focused on the same goal: a fun and challenging learning experience.

This is first for my daughter with Dixon. We really loved this school standards and Ms. Leahy (her class teacher).My daughter improved in her reading alot. I highly recommend this school for anyone. school standards are close to Montessori standards.

This is our third year at Dixon. We love it. We have been thoroughly impressed and delighted with the school, the staff, our children's experiences and so on. I am an educator myself and have taught in other states, I have never seen a public school of this caliber. I am a little confused about the rating changes, it must all be based on test scores? Dixon has been a 10 for the past few years. I was surprised to see an 8. All of the groups we have been involved with at the school are absolutely top notch and there are many, PTO, orchestra, chorus, gifted and talented program, speech therapy program, room mom. The music and art teachers are phenomenal, the school nurse is wonderful, the library is fantastic. I am a careful parent, I do my research, I always have my eyes and ears open, I am in contact with my children's teachers regularly and volunteer at the school whenever I can. I am well informed about how Dixon works and I can tell you that this is truly an outstanding school. Education is one of the most important things to us as a family and we feel blessed to be able to send our kids to this school.

This school is the best school I have ever attended hands down. No school has even come close to the awesome staff, great learning, and all of the extra activities. I made countless memories at this school that I will never forget. The staff is amazing! When I have children of my own, iI I will without a doubt move back to brookfield and have my kids attend Dixon!

Having been a student in top parochial and private schools I find Dixon a great disappointment. My child is a kindergarten student and he has not been nurtured or motivated by his teacher. There is a constant effort to slap a label on him. I am open to the teacher's opinion but my child has thrived in other educational environments. My child attended a highly competitive preschool and had no problems keeping up with his peers. We also work with him daily at home and cannot replicate the extreme deficits suggested by his teacher. It seems highly suspect that the only place he appears to falter is in his kindergarten class. I will be transferring my child to another school in the district that has higher test scores and many more satisfied students and parents. I would like to extend high praise to Dixon's art program and the teacher Mrs. Jacobson.

If I could afford private tuition, I wouldn't bother. This school is amazing.

We moved to the area 5 days before the 2006-07 school year started with our son going into Dixon for his Kindergarten year. All the teachers I've met are wonderful and very caring towards their students. Dori Jones is an extremely gifted Kindergarten teacher who helped my son get used to a new city and a new school all at once. Dixon school cares about their students and is genuinely there for the students first and foremost! We are very lucky to have moved here and I've been welcomed into the PTO of Dixon Elementary.
