IF YOU ARE READING AND CAN STILL SEE THIS, just so you know, if you write a BAD review of Dickinson, it doesn't get put up. So I won't bother as this will ALSO be deleted. Shows how much they want to cover their flaws. Reviews are EXACTLY for this reason...to REVIEW the school, everyone is different. But mine BOTH weren't great, and they have BOTH disappeared in minutes. Hmmmm. So this time I'll rate all 5 stars and see if it stays. DICKINSON HIDES TOO MUCH BEHIND THE NUMBERS, REPORT CARDS, AND INATTENTIVE TEACHERS!

My son went to Dickinson from K - 4. The teachers were almost all great (one 3rd grade teacher was a nightmare - should have pulled him from her class). The art and music teachers are wonderful. At the time my son started K he could already read and they were not prepared for those kids. We had no problem with bullying but there was one child with behavior problems and he was quickly removed for the safety of the other children. I was able to discuss my concerns with the Principal and she was very helpful. This school has a very wonderful and strong parent involvement. The building is old but well maintained and not one teacher left this school to go to the newer school when it was built. We had a very good experience here.

My children went here from Kindergarten to 2nd grade. The teachers are fantastic, but the curriculum is basic and there is a huge bully problem. The administration DOES NOT have a good grasp on how to deal with bullies. Also, if your child is above average or gifted, they are not challenged and there is not a lot of extra work for them to do. As far as public schools are concerned, it is one of the better ones in the area, but the administration needs to change. Not in touch with the teachers or the children.

We have sent 3 children through Dickinson with great learning results in all areas except hand writing,it seems to be a relatively weak or unemphasized atrribute here,in the correct formation of the letters,kind of an'all roads lead to Rome' philosophy. The teachers I can't praise enough,they are wonderful giving people only being held back by the ciriculum assighned to them. There is an excellent music and arts program here as well as a huge summer school selection. Parent involvment is high and encouraged. The only shortcoming is the choice of administrators at Dickinson as there judgement in my opinion sometimes falls short,as in passing 'problem' children on to the middle school to avoid a 'blemish' on the record. There is always the fickleness of the inclement weather policy being dictated by mood as opposed to the District Policy.

My son has learned more than I could have imagined in his 2 years at D.E. The teachers strive for excellence and respect. My son has become attached to every teacher he has had, and within 3 days of school starting he loves his teacher once again. The parents are more active than any other school I have been aware of. They are often friendly and helpful. There is so many non-basic items offered to the kids for learning, and the artist in residence program has been very educational. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL, TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATION, and OFFICE STAFF.
