    "What can I say about Dewey other than it is convenient if you live in military housing. It is a school for military kids and the school is a high poverty sponsored organization. The teacher are grumpy and sour faced on a daily basis. A smile and friendly hello wouldn't hurt them every so often. I drag me feet wanting to take my kids to this school. If it weren't for the process of an IEP that took two years to sign papers and initiate, I would have used CHOICE and put my children into a better school. They don't honor their IEP obligations and have yet to start as promised and legally signed to do. Dewey is exactly what you would expect it to be."

    "Dewey has been quite the disappointment. The staff is friendly and the location is convenient which is why I gave it 2 stars. The PTO and staff need some training on planning. They give very little notice about events and unless you are cliquey, the PTO won't contact you even though you signed up to help. I also rarely saw any of my child's work throughout the year. It wasn't until the last day that we were handed a large folder full of graded papers. Maybe it's rare that parents are actually involved and want to see their children's work but we do and it would've been nice to see what my child maybe was having difficulty with and being able to help. Being handed his work on the last day is pointless. Thankfully, he made good grades, otherwise I would've requested the work. Also, the curriculum is terrible. My child was constantly bored. They learned very little outside of writing, reading and math. They have a library they can't use and there is no art program. My child has been to half a dozen schools in just as many states. This has been the most disappointing experience. If he were to go another year, I'd choice him in elsewhere or homeschool."

    "We are a military family and have found Dewey to be a fantastic school for our child! Even though there are struggles with funding, they manage to find available resources to improve the quality of education to the students. Our daughter has experienced both 1st and now 2nd grade teachers and they are FANTASTIC!!"

    "This is the second year our child has attended Dewey Elementary and we have absolutely no complaints! The office staff, teachers, volunteers and leadership at this school are very respectful and pleasant to work with. The parents are also very involved with school activities. Dewey is very family oriented and understanding of the military lifestyle, which is very much appreciated in a military community."

    "This school has one major disadvantage. The office staff. They are rude, dismissive, and unfriendly."
