    From outside the school walls everything look great but once you inside it is not all cracked up to be! The VP at Dogwood is out of pocket and really needs to go back to professional training along with some of the staff members and teachers. It does not cost nothing to open your mouth & SPEAK!! The school is crowded with outside children that does not even live in the area so instead of smaller class sizes you have up to 21-24 children which is way to much. Some of the staff members were supportive but many of them seem less interested in what is going on with the student. If they tackle the small issues maybe they can grow more as a unit & not be divided.

    I Think the school is great. As with any school you have to stay abreast of your child's academics and teachers. But I have never had any problems with them.

    My sons have been at this school as early as preK and it has not always been great but I know that the Good has out weighed the bad. My sons get more then enough attention regarding their education and are very happy at school. The Vice Principle is great and spends time giving the necessary attention needed to resolve any problem that may arise. I know that there are teachers and faculty who care a lot about these children and give all that they can academic wise to see that all of the children succeed.

    The school does not provide any books nor shows any interest in the child's development. Dogwood looks good on the outside but the teachers don't really show any kind of leadership or even communicate with parents. I am very disappointed with the curriculum and the lack of attention to my son's education. I will definitely take my son out of Dogwood at the end of the school year.
