I appreciate this site because we are considering relocating and found a house that we liked but after reading these reviews we have reconsidered this area and will look into other school districts. Thanks again for the warning parents.

I'm really disappointed with this school and the last three years for sure. It's a matter of a weak school board and a weak Superintendent and Principal. Were more worried about implementing rules that they don't follow. It's based on who you are at this school. They don't know how to handle kids with certain emotional skills and certain kids can run the school. As stated the communication is terrible and things need to change fast because I wouldn't send my kids back if I had a second chance. Some teachers do a good job others don't and the teachers walk on egg shells because of all the stupid rules. Let's get with the program people it's time for some big changes before it's to late.

As a parent, I have watched the district gain speed, as it rolls down hill. There is little to know communication between parents, teachers, and administrators. If you don't ask, they aren't going to tell. It seems that as parents, we are informed only of the "Rose" colored goings on, and kept in the dark about all of the problems. Then, again, it has become Dodgeland's standard of thinking that, "If we don't talk about our problems, we can't have them." I can't wait until my child is out of this dysfunctional district.

I am a former student. I currently am studying at a private college. I feel that Dodgeland needs to think outside the box more in terms of providing a quality education for everyone. Obviously not everyone who comes out of Dogdeland is going to college, but raising the bar in the classroom to make that a goal for everyone would be a good start. I also think that the funding that the school receives should be more effectively used to benefit the students in the classroom. I did enjoy my time in the art room and English classes.

Dodgeland MS, in particular, has a teaching staff with great collaboration and camaraderie. Dodgeland HS has been blessed with an amazing German program and some other teachers that tend to prepare students for college expectations. My college student has expressed appreciation for this advance experience and for teachers at Dodgeland who raise the bar.

I graduated from this school last year, and I am now attending a private university. I can honestly say that Dodgeland did not equip me with the skills I needed for this college. I had straight A's throughout high school, and now I am struggling in many of my classes. I never developed studying habits in high school since most of the teachers babied us through classes. If we complained, they made it easier. Now it does not matter if we complain, college professors do not care. Also, my professors believe in building personal relationships with students which is something many of the teachers at Dodgeland do not believe in. This does not help when a student needs recommendations. Most of the teachers are great, but some partake in bullying students. I don't know how many times I sat through a class at Dodgeland and listened to a teacher bash a student or even favor other students. Then, the administration cracks down on high school students like they are little children. The lack of freedom and responsibility hinders people when they finally reach college. Dodgeland needs help, and I honestly would not recommend you send your children here.

Dodgeland is a bad school if an individual does not have the right name, they will receive no respect and little help from the teaching staff. Students use the fact that they go to Dodgeland as an excuse as to why they are not as smart as they could be, I know this is entirely true. In my past 4 I have experienced unsteady teachers in many core subjects. During these teachers absence we were provided with subs that were unequipped to be teaching that subject , therefore taking away from the students learning. I will graduate knowing very little Geometry for this very reason. Aside from the poor academics, the extra curricular personal, manly the athletic director is out to get any student athlete in trouble, even if this student athlete has not done anything against a code. To find this out the teaching staff has harassed and repeatedly questioned students as if there was a reward to find information.

I am a student at dodgeland high school and i personally think its an ok school. except that most of the teachers do have favorite students and are easier on them then the rest of us. this school tends to be unfair to some students. i have been going to dodgeland my whole life and it has changed sparatically over the years. i dont like it. now we have a new superintendent and principal and are changing all the rules and nobody is really happy with it.

I have had 2 children graduate from Dodgeland Schools and 1 presently going there. I believe the school has become worse over the years, the administrators are terrible, they along with the teachers have favorites, and they are given every break, there are a few good teachers but they are few and far between. the school board seems to be blind as to what is really going on they just do whatever the superintendent says to do. An average school going downhill unless some changes are made.

I was a student in Dodgeland for 8 years. I have been out of school for 5 years now. All I have to day is I hope the school has become a better place since I was a student. I felt that the staff didn't care about the students....unless of course they we into all the after school activities. The teachers obviously played favorites. I have only been back to the school once since I graduated, so if they have gotten better I sincerly apologize. If not, I hope my words help some parents to see whats going on.

I've been a student at this school district for 8 years now. I would say overall it's about average. It's strong point is it's extracurricular activities. Parent involvement is farily low though. Most of the teachers are good and nice, but there are some that take the quality down a bit.
