    This school was horrible my classmates were overly judgemental some teachers were biased they would not grade fairly and would not cater to any select student's needs now there were a select few teachers who I will miss and were really passionate about their job but overall the school was horrid. I have recently transferred schools and could not be happier.

    I go to this school And I absolutely adore it! It definately has to be one of the top schools around here. It is very clean and it actually has good food unlike most schools. I wouldn't wanna live any place else other than here. It's a small town but everyone knows each other. And people that live here love it!<3

    It is a very scarry thought that this school scored even a low score 4 out of ten. It has to be one of the worst schools I have ever had any contact with and that includes every school I went to as a child. What does it say about our low expectations regarding public schools.

    We just moved to the Ft Lee area and out of all the areas I chose Dinwiddle. I reviewed the school statistics sports program and community. The community seemed friendly and the school/sports welcomed him insteadly to the team. I wanted my son to attend a school environment which encourage education as well as sports. While both parents are deployed; we are still in close contact with my son's teachers. They provide updates and also assists him with school work which helps us keep him on track even though we are deployed. I appreciate the teachers and Edline it keeps us all connected.
