21 Parent Reviews for Dexter Middle School

The seventh grade language arts teacher, the seventh grade science teacher, and a substitute teacher during the science teacher's maternity leave, are three of the meanest and unprofessional teachers I have ever met in my life. Under the direction of the current principal, they are blatantly failing ...  Read more

This school has the most inferior administration of any school I have ever worked with. The teachers are great and do what they can with what they have. The teachers work well with parents and are involved with the pupils. The administration and office staff conversely, are rude, unprofessional, ...  Read more

I have to say that all the negative comments posted are right in line with my experience! I think that there is no rational explanation as to why a parent wouldn't be allowed to have lunch with their child. The diciplinary process is VERY inconsistent. The office administration is unwilling to acknowledge ...  Read more

Dexter Middle School is a GREAT school. The teachers and the administrators do a great job considering the circumstances. The parents that made negative comments are probably those that are not involved or those that think that their students are perfect. There are no perfect students/parents and ...  Read more

I just graduated from Dexter. Some of the teachers are really great but some just don't have the passion that other teachers do. Ms.Bazar and Ms.Clark are awesome teachers, they are my favorite from 8th grade. My favorite from 7th are Ms.Feltus and Mrs.Scissom.

Understandably as our children mature into young adults, it is imperative that with the high percentages of violence in today's schools, it would appear that this school would encourage parent involvement, but the are totally against it! I don't care for the school for the inconsistency in discipline, ...  Read more
