Dirksen Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

January 30, 2014 Submitted by a parent
Fantastic school. I went there and absolutely loved it. The teachers were great, the staff was great, and most importantly the curriculum was great. This school has an ESL program, and the great thing is they have multiple teachers who speak different languages. The classrooms usually have an aid to help the students. The school also has events such as movie nights, reading nights, volleyball tournaments, and of course basketball games. As a parent of a child who now goes there I have to say this school is pretty great. The pricipal has changed, and I'm not a huge fan of him, but the assistant principal Dr. Archibald is amazing. The office staff is also great. The only downside is that when I attended the school I rarely swathe nurse in her office, at some point I wasn't even sure that we had one. Overall great school, Send your kids here!

Horrible school. My kids went to this school 2009/2010. It was so bad that we had to move. Now we are in excellent school district and I see how great school look like with caring teachers and great administration.

Dirksen did not prepare me well enough for high school. I only have a few months left of high school, and when I started I didn't know any math. When I was in 8th grade, they put a teacher in the position to be a math teacher for 7th/8th graders. That was such a bad decision. He did not prepare me at all. Otherwise, I did pretty well at Dirksen. They had a very good social science teacher when I was in 8th grade. But, at night they are a lot of kids that smoke/drink behind the mobile units. That needs to be put under control. It makes the environment worse around there. That needs to be stopped.
