Levi P. Dodge Middle School Reviews

There are a handful of wonderful teachers that take the time to build positive relationships with students. Unfortunately, their grading system is based on written test scores. In some subjects, such as math , the students grade is entirely based on tests and cumulative reviews. Homework is not accounted for at all. I don’t believe it is the most accurate way of determining the needs of each individual student. Besides that, when a student has a bad testing day, the rest of the quarter is spent trying to bring their grade up from an F. They Do NOT allow test retakes, that I have heard of ,in any of the classes at Dodge. It can be very frustrating and defeating for students, especially those with test anxieties or those that just simply do not test well. It is disappointing they have not come up with more ways to determine the content knowledge of their students.

Levi p dodge middle school is definitely not a school to administer into. Unsurprisingly the school is 95% white and half the teachers are and expresse there feelings as liberals with no good after school activitys other then school politics which is basically just a popularity contest. The school has also received 3 threats in the past year that had cops come to the school regularly. The facilities are usually include flooded urinals toilet paper on the floor. Although academics are high in the school I believe most of it is just students teaching other students. iPads in the school are great amazing really but gaming has become such a problem that they restrict everything so you can't express yourself. There has also been days were kids go home crying because teachers are so ruthless on them and target kids because of their past and sex.
The athletic facilities are okay, but they could be better. Since we just built a new high school, most of the focus is on that and not the facilities at the middle and elementary schools.
