Dowling Elementary School Reviews

I enjoyed my time at Dowling. The music class they had helped me develop a passion for music and skills which led me to a future in my middle school and high school band programs. Because Dowling is lucky enough to have a pool, there are weekly swimming lessons for every student. These lessons allowed me to become a strong swimmer at a young age. I loved all of my teachers, though very few of them remain from my time there. The teachers form bonds and try to connect with each student, which creates a very beneficial learning environment.
