Dallas County R-I School District Reviews

3 reviews
Dallas County R-I Schools are truly passionate about the school environment. With what resources they are given, they go above and beyond what's expected and show what it truly means to be a teacher. Educators in every grade of every school in the district are so dedicated to the students as to even be considered family by many. This goes as far as select teachers having been made legal guardians to students whose families trust the teacher, sometimes more than even themselves. If the school had more funding, there is no doubt in my mind that it would go straight towards helping the students first.

Dallas County has an amazing staff, caring hearts and excellent school activities and opportunities for the students. I am excited for the new vo-tech to be built on the high school campus allowing students who are not interested in college to learn a trade. We are blessed to be a Bison.
This school should be shut down! They have lost children, I don't just mean they were inside the building and there was a miscommunication of where they were, NO my daughter was locked outside of the building unattended for 45 minutes before they found her. There have been parents that have been called from the YMCA being told that their child that was suppose to have a one on one para was over in their building unattended. Instead of finding the right spot for children with special needs they would rather let them have melt downs for 4 hours straight (until they get their money for the day) and then send them home every single day. Their staff is inefficient in caring for children with special needs, instead of sending them to the co-op that can educate and care for them they would rather save a few cents and keep them in a school that is unsafe.
