    Great school! Teachers are very caring and take the time to make sure students learn. All three of my boys have attended Dollahan from k through 5th grade. I have gone to the administration a few times and every time Mr. Husbands has been very supportive and understanding. Teachers with the help of their administration have raised CST scores. I am a proud parent of this wonderful enviroment.

    Teachers are not the best for the students. My three children are currently attending this school and two of the three teachers seem to give up on the students before any real results are available.

    Dollahan is a great school for Rialto it is new clean and is staffed with several caring and well educated teachers who spend their own money to make the learning experience more valuable for the children.

    I have worked there and have had all 3 of my kids there. I am eager for my remaining 2 to leave there. I was much more pleased with the previous principal. The staff teachers parents and students seem to be left out of their own education. The school seems to be under a rulership and is not at all united.

    I think this is a great school. We have great kids and great teachers & staff! Dollahan does need more parent participation though. But those that do volunteer are the best!

    I have been at Dollahan For 6 years now and I think it is a great school. Mrs. Chandler is a very good principal. Mrs. Marshall is very personable and great with the kids. Some of the teachers need to retire but on the whole the staff and teachers are very good and have the best intrests of the childern in mind.
