The school lacks PTA no parent involvement. The principal Ms. Chiles doesn't care to have a PTA. Poor overall leadership and customer service at the school from the principal, office staff, counselors. Seems like everybody's just there for their paycheck nobody really cares about the children. I was very worried about this school, and my children's education once I didn't see PTA!
My daughter has been going to this school from K-5 this is her last year. I love this school. The teachers are all great teachers, the office staff is very helpful and Mrs. Chiles is an awesome principal. The wrap program is good thing to have. The wrap leader Ms Regina is so cool and down to earth. I got involved from the beginning and got to know everyone at the school. I'm very happy with this school!!!
Very poor ever since Mrs Chiles has been the principal the school is not what it used to be, plus we have loss special programs as well. One mayor concern is "CHILD SAFETY" safety is very poor at Dooley, not enough adult supervision, neither at the front gate of the school nor at the open areas while children are present. Our concerns have no priority and they will be dismissed by Mrs Chiles. When some of the parents address the issue of safety the principal diregard our consern immediately, sayin that "CHILDREN LIE" but how can she say that when she's a mandate reporter and children are supposed to trust her. This school need a stronger leader and one that can help this school progress and most important keep our children safe.
I had a concern about my sons homework that he was bringing home. He had nothing to go off on and after speaking to the teacher she said she was not worried about homework. How can they call themselves a magnet school. He does not get a lot of homework and a reading log thats a month long. The school he came from had a package homework and reading log that had to be sing by us the parents and teacher everyday...
