    Hi I'm a student and would love to say how wonderful Dodson is I'm now entering my 7th year there and has been there since pre-k. This school is a happy place where every one fits in and it's cleaner than most schools. I have had a wonderful time learning here and so will ur kid

    My daughter finished pre-k she had a wonderful learning experience with a loving teacher who really cares.

    The school is decrepit. Falling signs peeling paint cracking foundation and walkways uncared for grounds and disgusting facilities. Also the "expectation of failure" attitude from the staff. This school is failing and is on the chopping block. As an actively involved parent I do not see any other parents involvement. The only positive about this school is the Principle.

    My son started in PreK and presently in K. The teachers thus far are great....I communicate via e-mail with all my concerns and they quickly reply and give me feedback. They treat you as if your child is the only one they have in thier class...with keen attention.
