Amazing school with awesome principal and teachers. We've been here for 2 years now and have nothing but wonderful things to say. I was contacted within the first week of school for my son's 504 plan meeting and everyone has been helpful and accomodating. Great school!
We love Dahlstrom, my dyslexic son is doing great!!
I'm a current 7th Grader and I love this place! When I came here last year as a 6th Grader, I learned it wasn't as bad as I thought. I'm involved with a lot at this school like choir, cheer, dance, NJHS, and Student Council. They make things so fun like Pep Rallies, Red Ribbon Week, etc. They make me so lucky to be a mustang. I totally recommend this middle school. GO MUSTANGS
This is the worst place to send your kids. If you are at the end of your rope and you have absolutely no other option for junior highs, TRY HARDER. You DO NOT want your child getting an education here. I was a student here from the 2012-2015 school years. I will start by saying that most of the teachers are not qualified to teach their courses. They have college degrees in majors other than teaching, then take the 'teachers exam' and become teachers. There were a few good teachers at this school, but the key word is 'few'. The majority of the teachers are indifferent and incredibly rude. I knew one teacher who would make students cry for missing work and failed assignments; she would bombard them with insults on their intelligence and capacity as well as their capability to learn. I specifically remember her saying, "Your grades are a direct reflect on me as a teacher- if you fail this class then my check gets cut!" Yeah. Contrary to this, I knew teachers who wouldn't even read my work and would just put 100's in the grade book because I was a 'good student'. Because of this, I failed my geometry class terribly because I never got the adequate education in middle school. On to the administration. They're awful. The counselor is arguably one of the worst you will ever meet. Upon my visits to her, I would be sat down and encouraged to converse of my issues. After only a few paragraphs worth of speech, the counselor would suddenly find something to relate to and go on and on about her personal life- her children, her struggles in youth, her divorce. She would turn the meeting into her own personal vent session. I would say that this would prevail for around half an hour before she would realize the time and send me off to class. I would leave feeling uncared for and further alone. There is not much to say about the principal other than he is a egotistical man with the only priority being himself. Upon meeting him, you will not like him. There is a vibe to him that REEKS 'you're not worth my time'. On top of all of this, the student body is wildly out of control and extremely undisciplined. They have no respect and no care, and it's not because of their parents- its because its not expected of them in school. In conclusion, if you want your child to receive poor education, poor counciling, and come home sneering and cursing- send them to Dahlstrom. Mercy.
