I have been a Dilworth parent for 8 years. One of my children has graduated from Dilworth and is now in the 7th grade and my youngest is presently in the third grade. Dilworth is a small loving academically challenging and diverse school. All classroom academics are enriched with the integration of the arts. My children have success in their school work as well as in the arts. I think Dilworth is Charlotte's best kept secret. A small school with a big heart.
My extremely creative little brother attended for a year- before he was pulled out b/c of all the inappropriate things he was learning from his classmates! There are major discipline problems as students know teachers' hands are tied- the administration won't back up referrals and there are conflicting systems of rewards and punishments.
I went to this school for fourth grade and I'm now in eighth. The Arts programs are excellent like dance and drama.
As a parent of a 2nd grader at Dilworth. I have only great things to say about it. My daughter is very good with arts/crafts. With attending this school since kindergarden all of her gifts have be brought to the for front. She has been selected for her art work and it dancing and auditioning for plays. This school is great.
