    Great environment for learning! We hope the budget will allow the present team to continue to do such a good job! I highly recommend Dodd Middle School for the athletic and music programs too!

    dodd middle school is a great community for students to learn. They have an advanced math class for students who need it and teachers come extra early to school if a student needs extra help and it is beneficial to my children

    Dodd was a wonderful school for our daughter. The teachers and administration truly care about the students. Middle school is a scary time for parents and students alike; Dodd made it a great experience! Thank you.

    My twins are in 7th grade and now almost done with their first year at Dodd. They have done nothing but excelled academically and socially. The teachers on their team are the finest I have seen yet. The kids have really blossomed during their transition to the middle school and adore every one of their teachers. I think your Dodd experience is what you choose to make of it as well - for both the kids and the parents.

    Moved here for the schools reputation and education. Very disappointed is all I can say. The bullying and groups of kids that gang up on each other is horrible. The school seems to push it aside. The education is very good however the groups of kids that are ruining it is terrible. I hope the staff get their acts together.
