About Isaac Dickson Elementary School
  • In 1992-93 Isaac Dickson Elementary School joined the Foxfire Network of Teachers to become only one of two Foxfire elementary schools in the nation. Foxfire is a framework for teaching based largely on the educational ideals of Dewey, Pestalozzi, Montessori, Piaget, and others. The 11 Core Practices of Foxfire that have been developed by Foxfire teachers over the last 20 years serve as a framework for classroom instruction. We believe that these practices enhance the experiential theme of our school.
  • Dickson is committed to a child-centered, progressive approach to learning. The staff believes that real life experiences and a “learning by doing” approach is the cornerstone of this Experiential School.
  • Experience...Multiculturalism - Isaac Dickson Elementary School believes that our cultural diversity is a strength that needs to be celebrated. We welcome a variety of students from diverse backgrounds whether it be racial, ethnic, religious or physically challenged.
  • Experience...Democracy - One of the primary aims of Isaac Dickson School is to prepare children to be active participants in a democratic society. Students are involved in many decision making activities including the formation of class rules, class projects, class government and school wide government.
  • Experience...Creativity - by emphasizing processes such as divergent thinking, freedom of expression, and problem solving, the students are encouraged to be creative. These creative processes often take shape as dramatic productions, art displays, writing of various kinds, video productions, computer generated projects and more.
  • Experience...Continuous Progress Classrooms - At our school the primary division (grades K-2) is divided into multiage classes of 5-, 6-, and 7-year olds. Multiage grouping is a pattern already familiar to children because it is like their family and neighborhood where they interact with children of a variety of ages. In this way a student stays with the same teacher for two years. About the Isaac Dickson Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization
