We love Dixon! We moved here last year and so far have a great impression of this school. The principal is friendly and very forth coming! I couldn't say more great things!

I am grateful that my child is able to attend DRES. The principal, Mr. Bennett, is truly amazing!! My child's teachers have all been magnificent. I don't care for the school's PTO. The fundraisers and prizes have been the same since my child started attending.

Dixon Road got a new principal this year and Mr Bennett is awesome. He cares about the kids and interacts well with them. He treats staff and parents with respect and is complete opposite of the previous principal. The teachers are caring and work really hard for the kids. Love Dixon Road!!

School and teachers are wonderful. Like the other reviewer, I am less than impressed with the principal. Alligood is not who should be leading the school. She's ill prepared to address the needs of the younger students, and should be relieved of her duties. She has a power hungry attitude and lack ...  Read more
