    Parents teachers students and the entire community work hard each year to make this school a magical place to learn.. Outdoor gardens a wood fired pizza oven for homemade pizza dinners bring the community together. A sound garden and nature trails add to the unique school grounds. Inside is a home away from home. My first grader loves his school and feels taken care of by is school family from Ms. Carmen the bus driver to Ms. Kate the gardener to his teacher Ms. Woods the thoughtful Principal and all the students. We are so fortunate and thankful for this dear sweet school.

    We have 2 children in Isaac Dickson and we love the school. It is an experiential learning magnet school. The teachers that we have had are dedicated and creative.
