    Dodge is the lowest performing school in Williamsville and in my opinion it is that way for a reason. The administration is non-responsive the School Board deflects comments and focuses its attention on the "better performing" schools in the district. As a result it is forcing us to send our children to private school. That is a shame given the overall high level of parental involvement.

    Compared to the other schools in this district Dodge is terribly behind and I feel as though the District has turned a blind eye to the needs and improvements at Dodge. Dodge's scores are 15-20 points behind others in this district. That is why I am moving to another school district. I feeam hopeful but feel sorry for the parents who are trying to make it work there.

    I found that this school does not measure up to the other elementary schools in the district. The test scores are very low and commitment to the children is in my opinion disappointing overall. Children that are sent to other schools (private catholic other elementary school in district) perform much better and excel.

    The school is wonderful. My son has had K and 1st here. They have a small class option pulling from the district for kiddos with speech issues/communication delays (15 1 1) that incorporates social skills along side academics. The social skills curriculum is part of the entire school and the children are better for it. There are many opportunities for parental involvement. We were nervous having moved here from out of state but I honestly could not think of a better environment for my son or our family.

    My son started K here at Dodge and is now in 1st grade with my daughter coming in next year in K. We love the school it's amazing staff and the enthusiastic helpful teachers. The school encourages independence and self respect as well as a sense of community among both the students and adults. Excellent education for our children is the top priority at this wonderful school which nods to both tradition and a progressive atmosphere.

    Dodge is has an excellent group of teacher's and the principal is great. My child has being at this school since k-1 and her development and self confidence is amazing. So far no complains and for me is #1 school at this area.

    My kid attended Dodge as a kindergartener. Honestly I am not satisfied with his teacher personality. I felt my kid was ignored and devalued.We moved out of town and my kid was doing excellently in both academic and social performance in the new school.

    I am impressed with the caliber of staff faculty support and staff development at this school. It amazes me that this school can have such high quality services in a political climate that consistently reduces resources. Kudos to Administration Active Parents and of course the teachers!
