Open Quote Love this school, love the teachers and the administrative staff! They go above and beyond teaching, caring and doing fun things to get students and families more involved! Close Quote

Open Quote The school is under appreciated, and could use some funding to bring up its appearance. It has a great staff, save for two people in the office who have questionable attitudes and would be better suited working away from kids. The attitude of students is overwhelmingly positive. One leaves the school with a good vibe, and the love and dedication of the students and teachers makes for a happy and nurturing environment. I really like Dodson for my family. 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.
