I think over all my experience with the school is bad. I believe if they got rid of the Principal and the male Assistant Principal, and bring some really caring people in that know what they are doing, the school would be 100% more better.

I use to work at this school, and boy let me tell you how crazy this place was. Principal was incompetent, and a bully, Sped department didn't know how to utilize the IA's, and the whole school culture was way too conservative. I was hired to work with this one kid, then when he got transferred to another school the staff treated me like absolute dirt and a dog. The third grade team in particular are absolute bullies and have no respect for people who are different. The kids are great, but overall the school is in the dumps and the majority of the staff simply do not care about the kids.

I have 2 kids at Dogwood and have been very happy with their progress. The teachers are great and I love the principals.

My kids attended Dogwood from Kindergarten to 4th grade starting in 2002 after the school was rebuilt and did very well there. The teachers were excellent. The newly rebuilt school was excellent. The year-round school program was excellent. The issue with Dogwood is the school is overwhelmed by ESL students drawing resources away from the remaining students and depressing its test scores. Many parents are not heavily involved in their children's education because as new immigrants they are often working multiple jobs to make ends meet and language is a barrier. All of this will not impact your kids provided you stay involved with their education and maintain contact with the teach staff.

Has been a wonderful start and great progress so far with my son. Started with skepticism as we are new to US. But it is a wonderful experience.
