Open Quote Dodge is definitely one of the best middle schools in TUSD. We open-enrolled our 2 sons out of district because we didn't think Dodge was a good fit for our oldest son at the time and didn't like any of the other options for middle schools in the district. However, our daughter attended Dodge and had a very good experience for the most part. She was accepted at both the Doolen GATE program and Dodge but we chose Dodge because we liked that the school stressed college and that the teachers did their best to prepare the students for high school. When we visited during 5th grade, my daughter was very taken in by Ms. Ponticelli whose class was doing a unit on Greece. Unfortunately, Ms. Ponticelli as well as 2 other 6th grade teachers along with Ms. White, the orchestra teacher, have just officially retired. Another thing I really like about Dodge is that it is a 5 'R' school (Reading • Writing • Arithmetic • Respect • Responsibility). The R&R cards encourage and reward good behavior and my daughter loved accumulating points on her card. As I previously mentioned, Dodge is one of the top middle schools in TUSD and the A+ rating it just received is an attestation to this. Close Quote

Open Quote I am a student at Dodge and am dismayed to inform anyone with high hopes of finding excellence and tradition at dodge that they will find no such thing here. Dodge is a filthy domicile with filthy children and hidden drug dealing and also hidden gangs. The staff are unaware of such groups but we, the students are certainly familiar with the kind. Racial groups are of vary high popularity here and you/your child WILL be judged on the color of his/her skin. I advise you with much dis-concern to avoid Dodge and speard the word of its horrific and minuscule education. Thank you. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
