We have been at this school for three years. Each year the leadership is worse. The school administration/personnel is very disorganized and does not have the kids best interest in mind. The school is over packed and I keep getting the same statement. "We have over 100 additional kids this year. We are having to do a lot of paperwork . We could not get too the programs that were offered at the beginning of the year because of all the kids. We are short staffed." Too many excuses (lies) for me. At this very moment I am making new educational arrangements for my child. If these are issues, then how can I be sure you are appropriately teaching my child ? Somebodies child is going to fall through the cracks. Calder Road needs new positive leadership. Not a person trying to please only the group of ppl she wants to please. Wake up DISD !

The teachers are amazing, but the principal is AWFUL. There is no reinforcement with discipline, and she will talk down to, and even yell at the parents. She is also known for yelling at her teachers -- who work VERY hard to make her look good (test scores). The teachers she doesn't like, she will make their life miserable so they will quit...and the teachers she likes, she will move them to academic coach positions. This school has a very high turn over teacher rate, which is difficult for the parents and students to understand.

This is our third year at Calder and the teachers/staff are all wonderful. They have worked with each of my children to make sure that they are progressing at the proper rate. My children both enjoy going to this school.

This school is incredible! As a parent, I could not be more content with the level of communication and concern the staff has for my students. The focus is always on what is best for the student, and fostering great relationships with parents and the entire community. The campus has the latest technology and materials for educational growth, and I feel confident that my children will be successful after developing their elementary skills at Calder Road.

My children have had great experiences at this campus. We love the communication that goes into letting us know what's going on. The school does automated call outs and sends out calendars each month to keep us notified of what's going on. They have strict policies on picking up kids and letting visitors in the building, but I think this is good because they care about the safety of our children. It's a new school but they definitely have their act together. My kids have always loved their teachers and I appreciate feeling like part of the Calder family.

I have had nothing less of an amazing experience at Calder Road. The teachers are caring and WANT to be there. The principal and assistant principal are helpful with any concerns that I may have. I feel that the school offers many opportunities for parent involvement. I am also please with the academic education that my child receives.

For Dickinson to have all variety of people there is no diversity in the staff. The solution to every problem is Special Ed, thats the principals approach. NOT HAPPY AT ALL
